Some of you I’m sure will know MP, so a name with some credibility.

Really, could they be back at the top table? Can you imagine?

Ferrari exiting F1 at some point to concentrate on WEC? Just a thought.

No. But with the f1 cash cap they now have some spare budget it seems.

Get me to Le Mans 2023 please!

Wow, Ferrari confirmed as factory team.

Apparently Hypercar, which would be a big addition for that category. Though will dig a bit deeper to see if actually they are in the LMdH category.

ACO seem to call everything hypercar in their press releases.

Video emerged of the Glikenhaus house car today. Looks alright, not blown away with it, but maybe better once painted up.

Edit... would appear LMH is correct, joining Toyota and Peugeot.

I’d have thought Ferrari would be joining HyperCar rather than LMDh otherwise they’d not be allowed to build their own chassis. LMDh is a choice of one of 4 chassis

Massively sensible decision (for more reasons than one). They were going to miss Sebring, so the ACO were already on board with that (and had probably waived any no show penalties) so no point in rushing the car into competition and being potentially stuck with an issue for 5 years.

The interest will be just how different the car looks in Spa.

Well technical BMW don't join the Hypercar fun - they are going LMDh, along with the rest of the smart money. I mean why spend $$$$ to build an LMH car when you can build an LMDh one for $$$ and they will get ballanced on performance?

True, they're all going to be lumped together into one 'hypercar' class though
