    LMGT1. The development is well under way.

    What tire compound were you using?
    What was your tire pressure?
    What was the track and tire temperatures?

    Rolls Royce Merlin and Rolls Royce Griffon are the 2 most famous Rolls Royce piston engines RR has ever made, these engines we're used in a insane amount of aircraft, in America it was known as the Packard or Allison Merlin's, they we're the same engine just different name. but the most famous users are the Spitfire, Mustang, Mosquito. well the Daimler-Benz DB-605ASCM might be the only counter to the Griffon engine.

    I can't say how I know.
    Just know that the Toyota Gazoo Supra racing concept is legit. So is the AMG concept. The Aston Red Bull thing by Newey is almost old now, but they were talking V12 which won't go down well. Maybe V12 for road cars and something else for the race version. I bet they had been negotiating regulations for months already, if not years.

    I reckon Ferrari has a GT1 prototype too, but that's just a hunch.

    I'm fairly certain that is an older video. Even the Motor1 article suggests it's a video of a video.

    extremly late by 3 months. but here is a video confirming that they will be actual 'hypercars' instead of DP style or LMP2 style of regulation.

    Is that the gazoo prototype? Pretty sure it has the TS050 drivetrain or something similar.

    It's the Gazoo Super Sport concept hypercar obviously heavily based on the LMP1. So yeah, pretty sure the drivetrain's not the only part of its LMP1 cousin in this car. Would love to see this beauty compete in the class that's going to replace the LMP1.

    The truth is I am not that excited for it...it is the same racing, just without some of what made Le Mans special since the early 70s

    in a nutshell, yes.
    Rolls Royce Merlin and Rolls Royce Griffon are the 2 most famous Rolls Royce piston engines RR has ever made, these engines we're used in a insane amount of aircraft, in America it was known as the Packard or Allison Merlin's, they we're the same engine just different name. but the most famous users are the Spitfire, Mustang, Mosquito. well the Daimler-Benz DB-605ASCM might be the only counter to the Griffon engine.
