At least LMP1-L has some competition now.
Class doesn't exist technically
Well, it doesn't indeed, but at least it offers an interesting battle if you can't bring yourself to support any of the billion dollar factory teams in LMP1-HY.
Let's just hope that Campos can last longer than other Spanish LMP1 efforts like, say, Epsilon Euskadi. They have potential, but they will need proper testing and funds to make that potential tanglible...
Gorgeous looking car that, whatever happened to that? Gave me Allard Group C vibes all over. Guess it was a victim of the financial crisis?
Is this real? Looks cool, entirely different.
Well, the crisis did play an important role in the ee1's death, but there's also the fact that both Joan Villadelprat and Mark Phillip Payne (Eupsilon Euskadi's founders) were apparently both taken to court on the accounts of corruption and negligent management of public funding.
It's a shame, but once your money pit schemes are uncovered, not much can be done to recover from that...
Colin Kolles didn't get that memo.
Well, the justice system will get to him one day, regardless of whatever justice system it may be. For now, we can afford to laugh at the expense of his team's underwhelming performances with barely any semblance of progress.
Well, they legit beat Rebellions on occasion this year. Dare I say it, that car will be consistent best of the rest if it is reliable in 2016. Decent driver line up, best engine in the LMP1 field (one of fastest in Fuji speed traps in 2014, and Rebellions with the AER top speed charts regularly) and a half decent car. Just need to make sure it doesn't damn well break.
All valid points, there are good ingredients for Kolles to turn the CLM into a true winner within its class. And as you said, all it needs to keep the car as a cohesive product is some proper reliability. In endurance races, slow can mean victorious... if it manages to finish the race, that is.
Shows just how successful the 458 GTE was.
Except, as Graham Goodwin pointed out, the USA.
As in the article, it says it's called the AC01 Tron Hybrid, so it has to be in the LMP1-H class. If this is legitimate, I'm interested in seeing how they do with the big manufacturer teams.
Russian driver completing an all Russian lineup on a Russian team? Sweet, bro.
Ehhhh. definitely a "wait & see" on this one, that name doesn't give me confidence.
So it was yet another car run by crooks
So what you're saying is, they could actually go from just a crook run team to a Scott Tucker-type team?
Campos was initially behind HRT F1, and we know what happened there. Big money still.
Its a joke. They're not entering. Its like April fool's day in Spain where the story originated.
Porsche came in with the same attitude, but I guess it can be brushed off considering they managed to actually stick to their promise.
Not to the extent Nissan did.
Porsche also came in with something twice, maybe 3x the budget. But they were also very prepared.
Porsche also have the name, Porsche, behind them. And when Porsche does motorsport, they mean business.
Not with an unproven concept either.
