Looks like Alpine is now competing in Hypercar this year. I canít remember if they announced this previously or if it is a surprise today. Anyway here is the car:

Yeah, its last years Rebellion (an Oreca). Previously announced but the scheme wasn't shown. Lets hope all the other hypercars grenade and it wins races.

yeah, I think it's probably easiest to get the assets they have a hold of, but Glickenhaus were the first to officially announce their Hypercar. And they're the only privateer/small make that's actually done the work (ByKolles remains vaporware).

also Le Mans is in August, I don't get why you need a poster announcement right now.

Yeah it's not a hypercar it's the Rebellion LMP1 in a coat.

Just like their last car is literally an Oreca 07.

I loving hate badge engineering.

It's a conversation starter for sure. Everyone loves it.

Edit: some guys I see every year just let me know their dad died, he was 94. He was the reason I bring a bottle of good whiskey to the track, and have multiple race posters each year, to give people that I haven't met. First time I met him it was like meeting family, and the whole family counts as friends even if we only see each other once a year.

Did a shot for him, did a shot for Sabine. Enjoy your friends and loved ones, even if they're friends you only see at certain times.

Here's another fun prep for Sebring: highlights from the 1991 race

check out the Acura transmission change off to the side, with Parker Johnstone yarding parts over the bridge while the other driver, Steve Cameron, worked the wrenches.

Iím making the mistake of watching the NBCSN TV coverage of Sebring and it might be the worst race broadcast Iíve ever seen. Itís like they heard the criticism of Daytona having too many commercials and too much Jimmie Johnson dick sucking and tripled down on both
