Good to see them back, sportscar racing needs some new(ish) contenders. As a spectator I'm pleased it's petrol engined, the diesels are dull and the full electrics will be the death of sportscar racing if they ever take hold.

lol. Not really, not if those electrics are more efficient and powerful than the petrol/diesel cousins. Imagine a diesel turbine powering four fully independent motors which push out and take in (braking) power at an awesome rate. That would be something to see.

Check out Jaguar's C-X75.

As a spectator, diesels are dull, with last years Audi the only noise was the air whooshing over the bodywork, whereas the year before the petrol V12 Aston sounded fabulous, like a proper boys racing car! Diesel may be efficient, with a little help fron the ACO, but it aint entertaining. Paul Drayson sees the future of racing with silent electric cars, I wonder how many spectators agree, - I won't be there! If efficiency and noise reduction are the the gods, why not stay home and race each other on play stations?
