What will the NASCAR rules changes for 2015 mean? (No change for Daytona and Talladega ) Engines with less horsepower, aero packages that will mean less downforce... will these rules requires a true driver? Who's going to benefit, whose going to struggle?
In Formula One Honda has decided to fight the engine rule that excludes them from developing their engine in-season. This is a huge story either way it goes. Will Honda get the waiver as have Ferrari and Renault? Also, Haas F1 has announced it will be hiring and staffing it's UK headquarters effective immediately. Additionally Haas is hinting that the FIA and Bernie Eccelstone may allow customer cars for 2016. That would be a huge change for the entire series, which is in a bit of disarray.
In Sportscars, namely the prototypes, LMP2 and LMP3 Tony Ave and Riley Engineering have announced a new car to be built. The LMP3 class is growing and the market includes those track day drivers with more money than good sense. By 2017 the Protoype class in America will be identical to that in Europe guaranteeing crossover teams for different events.

This week we look into why NASCAR has instituted a test ban, why they have reduced the horspower of their cars, will Jeff Gordon retire after 2015? Unfiletered, unbiased and completely unafraid to tell it like we think it is.
In Formula One we have to address the mess that Ron Dennis, the team principle of McLaren has made such a mess of announcing the teammate for the incoming super driver, Fernando Alonso? Why keep two great drivers on the edge of their seats not knowing if either will be alongside Alonso at McLaren in 2015? Has the glorious past of Willimas Formula One finally returned? Great team, great drivers and great engines....it could be the iconic British team is back with a vengeance. Will Formula One allow a relaxation of their engine rules to make the races more competitive?
In IMSA, the Sports Car series, will we have some clarification of what the rules will be for 2015 or will it be another Daytona Prototype year? Did NASCAR, who owns the series, stack the deck in order for GM to run a Stingray look DP? What will we see when the 24 Hours of Daytona rolls around in February? All of this and much more.
Here at Motorsports Unplugged we'll be joined this week by Gene Boyer and racing expert Bill Marlowe to challenge the racing world with two big topics. With this past week's debacle for Honda in their Abu Dhabi test, is Honda in for a nightmare 2015 Formula One season with McLaren? Or were they smart to get it out early in testing before the official Jerez tests in February? Does NASCAR really have a great points to Championship format or is too much of a gimmick that will bite them if one or more manufacturers don't get in the playoffs for 2015?

In NASCAR the rules changes may benefit the young drivers such as Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott. Chase Elliott joined JR Motorsports in the Xfinity series in a NAPA powered car.
In Formula One Honda may be included in the engine rules "Unfreeze" thus allowing it to develop it's engine throughout the season. Ferrari admits that it's late with it's 2015 car and engine development.
In Sports car testing at Daytona one of the Daytona Prototypes got airborne for approximately 100 yards, no one was injured, but does this mean the DP's have a problem that needs to be addressed? All Four Ligier cars ran well.
