The following was gleaned from the pages of AutoWeek magazine:

Brix racing will use Oldsmobile Aurora engines in their 1995 Exxon Supreme GT cars. (Didn't say if the cars would be Aurora bodied, just that they would use the engine.) Eventually, Brix will run the 4 liter Aurora engine in their WSC car, too.

The Courage team of France will enter the IMSA WSC series next year. They plan on having six Courage chassis ready for the season. Henri Pescarolo has been testing the cars. Car looked neat on the accompanying photo -- kind of Ferrari 333SP-like in the front but blockier in the back.

Eliseo Salazar, who co-drove the Momo Ferrari to 3 WSC wins in 1994, reportedly has the inside track on a seat at Dick Simon racing for the 1995 Indycar season. AutoWeek did not say if he would or would not drive for Momo in WSC events.

BMW has cancelled plans to enter IMSA's WSC series with a factory team, but Peter Sturtz may continue to develop the car without factory help.
