Imagine what Le Mans in 2020 could be like!

It seems a bit pie in the sky to me. The hypercar regs will have to be very prescriptive indeed, and the pros and cons for each design of car will mean big performance differentials due to development budgets being small.

One thing is for sure, with only one manufacturer, LMP1 is dead.

Well, it's getting back to the original regs for Le mans, why not have rules such as minimum of two seats and a spare wheel must be carried...

Seriously anything to open up the class to more manufacturers is a good thing. Last year the GTs were the class to watch...It would be good to get the Halo cars racing... shall we club together and modify an MC12?

If anything we'll be able to out drink the other teams...

Even the GT classes were a procession last year. Anything to make the classes competitive can only be a good thing.

Never liked the LMP1 cars.....always more interested in watching the other classes of road cars so I like this.

There was a race this year? Wow, who’d have thought it? I just drank beer for 3 days!
You didn’t just drink beer. You also complained, set fire to the ivy, did some world-class barbecuing, complained a bit more and smiled indulgently while the rest of us children giggled and drew cocks on your car.

Don't bet against those Frenchies slapping a 'spite tax' on us, post-Brexit!
Guilotines to be constructed on all border crossings! English 'eads may roll; but at least the cars will be interesting. Brexit just wouldnt be fun for them without upping the price. Simple macronomics, no?
