    Why would AMR not take up their automatic invitation? AF Corse is with Team Seattle.

  2. Christopher.uk says:

    Because AMR may race in LMP1 class for the LeMans24 this year. That’s what David Brabham said on Antosport last week. He also said, he does not expect AMR to return to the LMGT1 Class of the LeMans24 this year as a factory team.

    He said that the team is looking at LMP1, I guess with the Lola Aston Martin.
