Could they please ditch the hypercar name, and just call it prototypes again. I see no freaking difference

Haha I hadn't noticed they were calling the Alpine a hypercar :roll: It's a Rebellion P1 with a different engine. Ri-diculous!

GR10 is a beautiful car, but I would not buy it to drive the streets daily.

Are "hypercars" meant to be daily drivers? :lol: :lol:

As far as I know the Hypercar regulations include a fixed downforce-to-drag ratio. How is this rule enforced by the ACO?
