Greaaaat news. Sad to say the LMP1 is going the way of the Dodo Bird. Costs as much as a third world country.Well, this is exciting!!! And Audi doing the same!
Porsche to return to Le Mans 24 Hours with LMDh prototype from 2023
The German manufacturer has been given board approval to develop a car for the LMP2-based LMDh hybrid category, which it revealed was under evaluation by its motorsport department back in March.
Pascal Zurlinden, head of factory motorsport at Porsche, confirmed that the marque is "intending to run in both championships with a full commitment", starting with the Daytona 24 Hours in January 2023. He described its commitment to the category as "open ended".
The decision means that Porsche will have been absent from the top class at Le Mans for five years following the end of the 919 Hybrid LMP1 programme in 2017.
The news from Porsche follows the announcement that sister marque Audi is also developing an LMDh prototype and brings the total number of major manufacturers committed to Le Mans for 2023 to four, with Toyota and Peugeot competing with Le Mans Hypercars.
Lesson learned, I'm sure - but this is why I always engage my e-brake when parking - even on flat ground. Also taught my kiddos to do the same.My Truck, It was Parked on a steep hill on a job , It jumped out of Park and rolled down the hill. This happening is sooo 2020!
And we are off! I put 100 miles on it today! Swapped out the crank pulley and went with a VAP tune, bumped output to 650 HP at the crank!So far , so good!
