With Toyota being the only manufacturer team to remain in the LMP1 class of the World Endurance Championship (WEC) next season, perhaps it is time for the Western Automobile Club (ACO) and FIA to consider bringing the GT1 category back to the WEC world.
In the 1990s, supercars of the time were on the grid of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, including McLaren’s F1 GTR and Mercedes’ CLK GTR, so why can’t today’s hypercars?
Designer Marco van Overbeeke has been commissioned by DriveTribe to create these conceptual GT1 race cars, converted from some of today’s best hypercars including the Ferrari FXX-K Evo, Mercedes-AMG Project One, McLaren Senna, Aston Martin Valkyrie, Koenigsegg Agera RS and more. Overbeeke has not just transformed the hyperscar’s silhouettes and dressed them in new racing liveries, he’s also included the drivers’ names of each team on the car. While it is not going happen for the 2018 season at least, we can still dream about this stunning lineup.
