Just read about that as well. Audi 1-2-3 only if they don't crash into GT cars like in 2011. Since they won't have any proper competition they won't need to take so many risks lapping GT cars though. Maybe Nick Minassian saw this coming and jumped ship before the announcement to have a better chance of getting a drive in another LMP1

At least Porsche and Toyota will be on the scene soon.

Actually it was Auto Hebdo magazine who ran pictures. I just nicked them back ;-)

Pity Peugeot have run away before the first race. And while it might not be a pointer to the result in June, it remains true that Audi has never beaten Toyota at Le Mans.

The curse of the FIA world championship status strikes again?

It is a real shame, I don't imagine Toyota beating Audi just yet, interesting project though I guess the Porsche project will be hybrid also so not really a duplicate but I take your point Julian.

One thing is for sure there will be some wry smiles in Atlanta this morning and I think the ACO and the FIA deserved this reality check after scheduling a round in Bahrain of all places on the weeekend off Petit Le Mans, an unwise slap in the face for the ALMS after all it has done for endurance racing.

On the plus side it could convince Nissan to maake the leap and go beyond just engine supply but I suppose that's french money too.
