Hello fellow drivers

I was surprised as you can see I can drive a toyota in LMP1 Career, where the hell does this come from ????
I can't drive it in custom mode can you ?

Well i guess i did not, but why is it available in career mode if it's suppose to be a future dlc ?

How did you get these screenshots?

This doesn't look right as it looked like you hacked the game for this car to appear. I would really appreciate if SMS stop leaving the DLC files in the game as a lot of upcoming DLC informations are being leaked out from the files left in the PC version.

I dont get it. whats the hype about. its just same as other lmp cars, with toyota name on it. might aswell give ferrari suzuki honda civic lmp car and whats the difference?
btw aston martin lmp car sucks, its not competetive to other lmp1 cars so whats the point? i understand when we get some unique cars like the old mustang or dbr1. that stuff is awesome. but personally i wouldnt give a damn if they would give us 100 lmp cars with random manufactors.

As I said, LMP1 Career, first race Spa and nope it is not a cracked version

The DLC isn't out. How did you access it? I can't do that in mine as there won't be a Toyota contract for me.

Watch your language on this forum. Cursing (even if not completely spelled correctly) is not allowed.

It is an "oops" that some of the upcoming DLC is now active, but take it is so give SMS a "thank you" for it. ;)

Ha ha! Lucky guess Balderz002. I'm sitting at home recovering from an operation desperate for my most wanted car to come to console and all I see are more and more PC users accessing it. It's torture!

I'm constantly checking to see if v5.00 has hit Xbox One yet so the DLC may arrive Tuesday and searching YouTube for gameplay.

Stop delaying us PS4 users Microsoft.

Funny old thing. Got my wheel last week. Got it all set up, then said 'could use a bigger monitor'...... To which she replied 'your never satisfied with what you got!' To which I replied 'im still married to you aren't I!?'

I also don't get it (and many other people on other forums)
LMP cars all come off as "soulless" to me - they mostly all have the same designed striped down cockpits and aren't that fun to drive compared to other classes
LMP cars to me are useless next to open wheel racing which offers similar driving feel but with much better sense of speed/excitement due to cockpit being in the open

I guess its much cheaper and easier to license LMP cars..

Yes, I've got PS4 v5.00 but what I meant was the DLC won't arrive until Microsoft release it for Xbox One. SMS don't want to upset anyone by releasing DLC earlier for some.

LMP cars are the most technologically advanced and diverse racing cars as of today (except the cars from the World Solar Challenge I guess), while providing impressive performances and excellent reliability. And yeah they're not really meant to provide a quick sense of speed like open wheelers, they're meant to race for 6 to 24 hours.

I'd say GT3/GTE is more diverse and LMP1 is no more technically advanced than F1. LMP2 and LMP3 are definitely not technologically superior than other forms of racing.

Soulless...riiiiiight.....because they all have very unique "soul" configurations, yet the open wheelers are somehow more....diverse? I'm not sure I follow.

Technically LMP1 cars are quite similar to Formula (1) cars with the advantage of not looking as ugly as a vacuum cleaner. ;)

LMP cars tend to be more relevant to road cars, aren't strangled by tight arse restrictions, and aren't governed by a mentalist Andy Warhol lookalike who only want to line his own golden pockets. WEC is in a much better place to be than F1!

That has nothing do with whether LMP1 is the most diverse or technically advanced group of racing. LMP1 definitely can't be definitively claimed as either.

Well it has one thing over F1. If that's the pinnacle of motorsport, LMP has a couple of years on F1 in using hybrid tech.

You are just going further and further from the initial statement, and I am not going to even respond to that. LMPs are no more diverse or technically advanced than some other forms of racing. This isn't going to turn into some LMP1 vs F1 bashing fest. Actually it can, but I am not participating.

...LMPs are no more diverse or technically advanced than some other forms of racing...

A turbo V4 + battery hybrid vs. turbo diesel V6 + flywheel/electric vs. N/A V8 + supercapacitor vs. Front engine! V6 TT + mechanical flywheel and they are all (save the last one, but I'll be $5 they're close next year) within spitting distance of each other. That's just about the high point of technically advanced and diverse in my book.

Two can play that game.

FR turbo V6 vs MR V10 vs MR V8 vs FR turbo V8 vs MR turbo V8 vs FR V8 vs FR V8 vs FR V12 vs FR V8 vs MR V10.

I repeated some of the layouts, but they are all different cars in one racing league. That is much more diverse.

In terms of technology the LMP1 class is no more advanced than F1.

LMP2 and 3 are definitely no more advanced or diverse than half the racing classifications on earth.


As a side note the Nissan shouldn't even count as an LMP1. It didn't even complete one whole race and then they quit the rest of the season. Also they aren't in spitting distance of each other. The TS040 doesn't stand a chance.

I'll give you advanced, but diversity is beat by the PWC.
RWD AWD
V8 V10 V8TT V6TT H6
High and low displacement variations of the various engine layouts
Rear engine, Mid, Front
Carbon tub chassis, steel, aluminum, carbon-aluminum hybrid
That is just in the top class alone. Pirelli World Challenge has the most diverse field of race cars on the planet. I doubt that level of diversity can be beat to be honest.

Ah but BoP through engine restriction is slightly different than via equivalence of technology as LMP1 is doing now. It's artificial diversity as everyone knows you can bring whatever you like and it will be equalized to the same level. To open things up in a 'run what ya brung' formula with only an energy allowance and get such variety is far more impressive, IMO.

No arguments that F1 is at the top right now. Boring as the racing may be, those power units are at or over 50% thermal efficiency and could go higher. That is mind boggling from an engineering perspective.

I love the lmp1 vs f1 debating, it's funny because I'm a massive f1 fan and havnt missed one live since I don't know when . Everythings planned around F1 however I have very little interest in driving one , given the opportunity to race I'd take WEC over F1 apart from the money earning aspect. I havnt tried the Formula A and have little interest in it but I love racing lmp2 and lmp1 and GT3 in pcars

Aye. GT diversity may be cheap and artificial, but it makes a damn good looking field and it still counts. What can I say? haha.

Thats the truth. Toyota better bring it next year (even though I hate the brand), but Nissan can just go play with themselves in a corner. I could not care any less what happens to them and Le Mans disaster for the third time in a row. Either way I'm out. I dont even know what this thread's topic is haha.

One thing I will say for the outlook of the organisers of Le Mans, is their Garage 56 entry. Had some very techy entries over recent years. Takes alot to let these technology demonstrators to run on track with the actual race entries.

LigierJSP2
17-10-2015, 01:07
They are also apparently extending the pit lane so that 60 cars may race in 2016. Nissan was the first Garage 56 entry with the Delta Wing in 2012, which was going decently until one of the Toyota's accidentally punted it off course. Then Nissan came back with the ZEOD RC, which was built by the British Ray Mallock group, but the last two years the 56th car has just been a standard entry.

That was the GreenGT H2 in 2013 and it was amazingly ugly. It ran for the first time in April of that year but was hugely complex and expensive so the project was delayed. They apparently intend to return in the future but we'll see if those plans come to fruition.
