Somehow this year I don't think it will make much difference. This should probably be viewed as a transition year, until Toyota gets going and Porsche steps in. Hopefully also the privateer HPD entries will build-up a team infrastructure for the future of the series.

This is stil BS, Why dodn't they make the rules balance out between the "oil burners" and petrol cars, and make the season realy competetive. ACO and FIA are still trying to promote something that won't work. Shame .........

Well, they can believe whatever they want, beliefs are free. They also believed they would be smashing good in F1, and look at how that turned out.

Audi has been endurance racing non-stop for 15 years now, or something like that. Granted, Toyota used to be a house hold name in the sport, but that was then and this is now. I don't think they'll be able to touch Audi for a couple of years, at least. Just like Peugeot. And look how that turned out, they were so fixated on beating Audi they basically went supernova.

It looka like a cluster for the year I bought tickets with all the ALMS newsletter stuff about Toyota coming and Peugeot coming to battle it out with Audi lo and behold Peugeot bails on the last day and then I see Toyota won't be there either ! the ALMS and Crash both said Oreca was going to run the team I thought ?instead I see Toyota is going back with it all going on at the (never won a championship operation in Germany) I keep on hanging in with AlMS but after this year I think I'm done .
