As the title says really, can the new LMP'S be used in endurance in career?

No, it doesn't look like it. I just tried starting level 1 endurance and the new ones are not available in car selection.

Surely they have to be?! I believe the Porsche 911 RSR is so don't see why these wouldn't be. PC1 had pre-defined career options so DLC cars weren't useable but I think (although I stand to be corrected) the car/livery selection options were added to rectify this.

The RSR was in the existing GTE class. The new LMP's are in a new class. Only GTE, LMP1, and LMP2 show up in the car selection.

Maybe it is an invitational event?

Ah that makes sense. That's a shame. But the 24 Le Mans Experience invitational - I'm assuming - is a more up to date version of Le Mans with LMP1-H, LMP2 and GTE? I'd take that as at least we'd be able to race Le Mans realistically in career.

Sorry, but this is BS. It's single player career. If I want to drive the 919 in LMP1, I should be able to. There is no valid reason why I shouldn't.

Yes, that's right on the invitational. It has GTE, LMP12016, and LMP2 to choose from.

The one thing I didn't check is if anything is different on a new career. This was on an existing career I checked.

From the sounds of it you can - in the invitational. They can't and won't add them to Global Endurance Championship because they are LMP1-H, not LMP1. They can't change it completely seeing as not everyone will have the DLC. Makes perfect sense when you think about it. Adding a replica Le Mans invitational seems like a fair compromise though.

Is the invitational unlocked straight away or is there certain criteria to fulfill before hand ? Looking forward to it either way . I wonder if this is why the Le Man event in the GEC starts and finishes at strange times of the day . I think I’ll start with a GTE then LMP2 and finally LMP1-H once I’ve won it in the previous disciplines just to pro long the enjoyment.

It's unlocked as soon as you get the DLC
