    No to GTE+, no to DPi. And the announcement that there will be an announcement.

    What really got me is this though:

    These include Porsche, Ferrari, McLaren and Ford, a number of whom have told DSC via senior sources that they have a variety of possible programmes all reliant on Hypercar regulations, and Balance of Performance being deliverable for the promised budget levels.

    Hypercar will really be a BoP formula? Really?

    Balancing was built into the original regs via hard limits on drag/aero/power, GTE style BoP is a last resort afaik- I read the statement as a catch-all saying "don't let this be EoT again". There might well be overall BoP - success ballast is a kind of bop - I sincerely hope not though or I'm done with the whole series.

    Been waiting for this 'news", guess no news is somewhat good news.
