Aston pulled out of DTM. The grid has 14 cars now.

Itís got to be a more complex situation than that, because Aston wasnít directly funding/supporting the team in the way Audi and BMW do and Mercedes did. It was put together by R Motorsport, who still were apparently trying to get the cars on the grid as of a week or two ago.

It sounds as if both Aston and R Motorsport are out, but still - really strange situation. Wonder if any old chassis will be dusted off and rolled out to make the numbers up. First time with only two brands in a long while, too.

I'm just hopeful that this doesn't include cost increases on the DPI formula that will lead to it sputtering out fast (this is absolutely what will happen)

I donít have any idea how any of this will work and it sounds like it has an enormous number of potential points of failure and requires the ACO to be honest and forthright which we all know is impossible but boy, am I hype right now

Still going to be P2 based, carrying forward all 4 P2 makes from the current stable but will be based on their new 2021 P2 designs. Same regs as now, has to be based on one of those P2 chassis.

Also Peugeot is canning the hypercar and designing an LMaoDuh instead, its happening already

Huski Chocolate is a lifestyle, not only a product. It's about adventure & expedition. Living life to the fullest. It's a perfect recovery drink after training, because of the healthy carbohydrate and protein content, easy to digest and perfect for replenishing tired muscles.

This owns because it's basically the only way this was ever going to happen: ACO needed IMSA and IMSA let them look good.

I still can't tell from the replays if something broke on him or if he went for a divebomb move without realising there was a car directly alongside.

We were in the paddock at sebring last year, M8 rolls by to go to tech and I heard some woman say "oh lawd he comin"

Somehow it never gets old.

Also enjoying the Corvette having a DRL burned out already, so it fits in with all if their street cars now.

Balance of Porsche, if your car is faster than a 911 GTE, it gets nerfed until the 911 is faster.
