    Its more important to not clash with Formula E than it is IMSA? Sad very sad.

    Mistake. Not a question for the podcast, thought I was in the Form E article still.

    Given the poor performance, we saw by Riley so far this season, will the ACO and IMSA consider to announce a fifth constructor to enhance competition in the LMP2-class?

    This week, a rumor was published, that RLL considers to mount a WEC program. Here is my theory on this: The BMW factory contract goes to Andretti and RLL will be something like a works supported or semi-factory team from Dallara, to show what a top notch team can do with this car. What doyou think on this John?

    If Porsche drops out of LMP1, is it a dead certainty that Toyota will drop out as well?

    If both of them drop out, how quickly would the ACO and IMSA come up with a place for allowing DPIs into LeMans and/or the WEC? 2018 Season? 2019 season? If it’s 2019, what cars would “headline” 2018?

    Wouldn’t it be relatively easy for HPD to drop an Indycar engine (about 800 hp) into their Acura DPI? And couldn’t you either boost the Cadillac engine or use the Chevy-Ilmor Indycar engine?

    Does the ACO have a contingency plan for this? Or are they just hoping against hope that Porsche stays one more season?
