>>Zytek update courtesy of Race Car Engineering.  Zytek is looking to secure a two car entry at Le Mans in 2008 and is currently seeking funding to make that a possibility (one entry being the convetional LMP1, the other a hybrid gas-electric LMP1).  The Zytek 06S is off for a wind tunnel test ahead of their planned early May Magny Cours test.  And finally there is the possibility that following Le Mans the 06S could be brought over to the U.S. for the Petit Le Mans later in the year.

>>Acura returns.  After a 13 year absence Acura has returned to sports car racing with the announcement of a LMP2 engine program for 2007.  The 3.4 liter normally aspirated V8 has been developed by Honda Performance Development out of Santa Clarita, California and is the first racing engine to derive exclusively from the HPD facility.  Oddly enough it has been announced that the LMP2 engine will be installed in both Courage LC75 (image) and Lola B05/40 chassis' next year but no announcements have been made as to what teams will field said cars.  The press release also has a bit of intrigue stating, "After initial competition in the LMP2 class, plans call for the development of an Acura LMP1 chassis and engine package to compete in the American Le Mans Series, and earn an invitation to the 24 Hours of Le Mans".  No word yet on who will be responsible for the design of the Acura chassis or what engine will be utilized.
The Acura LMP2 engine will begin track testing this summer.
