Porsche to return to the LMDh prototype class with duel WEC, and IMSA programmes.  Effort will be spearheaded by Penske Racing.  Eventually customer cars available as well.  When Penske ended their Acura IMSA programme, and Porsche simultaneously ended their factory GTLM effort, this was suspected.  Great news for sports car racing fans, Porsche & Penske go back a long time together!

The Penske Automotive Group is one of the largest Porsche dealers in the US, been selling Porsches for almost six decades.  I canít speak for you, but that sounds like a long relationship to me

On a serious note, at the time, I wished he would have made Porsche a serious contender in CART.....

McLaren have a big announcement on Sunday.  It may just be a new sponsor, but there's a risk its LMDh, or both.

They're running the cars in Gulf colours at the Monaco GP.

Sadly, Gulf must be the new sponsor.  I don't think they ever ran in those colours in F1, only in the later Davidoff GTF1s, and the did have some Gulf stickers on the orange Can-Am cars 50 years ago

I git you, but, I'll be happy to see a sponsor from 50+ years ago back again. Smiley
