There's now been six months' worth of hype - excuse the pun - surrounding the World Endurance Championship's future hypercar concept prototype class. Any number of people, all-important manufacturers included, have stepped forward to talk up the innovative formula that will come into force for the 2020/21 WEC season.
But talk is cheap. What the hypercar concept needs right now is for major car makers to put their hands up and say, 'We're coming, see you in September 2020'.
The category requires such commitments - and in the plural - pretty damn quick. The hypercar concept needs them to maintain the momentum the category has gathered since it was announced during the week of the Le Mans 24 Hours back in June.
