They will put more of an emphasis on customer cars compared to when the C6.R was launched for the GT1 class in 2005.

Will someone please explain to me why Dyson would want to leave Porsche for 2009.

Is there bad blood between the two? I had assumed that Dyson would get more factory support with Penske out; is this not the case? With the top P2 teams out for 09 I would expect Dyson to be a shoe in for the P2 championship, especially with factory support.

Thanks in advance

You have to keep in mind that the RS Spyders are ridiculously expensive when compared to its competitors, and the economic turmoil isn't helping at all.
It may also have to do with Dyson's lack of support from the factory, whereas Penske was factory backed.
Bad blood may be the reason as well.

Amongst all the economic crisis bilge that we're hearing about, at least there's something to look forward to next year..

I'll take a slight guess and say the main powerplant in the Toyota will be based on the GT-One's.
As far as who will be running it, it'd be safe to say Dome themselves will run it with some help from Cologne.

I think it'll be interesting if Toyota can make a Direct injection turbo with hybrid system...might just be a diesel killer...

With the new regulations surely it would be.
Though reliability is a question, of course.

My guess for Luc Alphand is they're waiting for approval from Corvette.
Kruse's "une bonne surprise" is probably a coupe.
