In present to harmonise performance stages between the Hypercar and the LMP2 categories, the FIA WEC Committee and the ACO salvage determined to extra regulate performance of the autos competing in the LMP2 class.
Right here is to execute obvious the performance windows of the two respective lessons of autos, as well as their stride profiles, live constant the least bit circuits and in all climatic conditions.
Gibson engines, arresting to this class, will attributable to this truth issue 400kW as an different of the old restrict of 450kW. Moreover, mirroring the Hypercar class, a single aero kit has been made foremost across the total season and will doubtless be restricted to the Le Mans specification. The minimal weight of the autos has also been elevated by 20kg and has been location at 950kg.
As presented ideal 365 days, the initial opinion became as soon as to reposition the performance window by adopting the 2021 Goodyear tyre specification and decreasing basically the most engine vitality by 30kW.
Following the initial testing part and session with both Goodyear and the teams, the committee has determined that retaining the beforehand former compounds is basically the most upright choice, given their confirmed and constant performance in all conditions as well as their drivability.
Moreover, lower vitality restrict will contribute to lower running costs by extending lifespan of diverse parts.
The recent stage of performance will doubtless be presented in all competitions (FIA World Persistence Championship, European Le Mans Sequence, Asian Le Mans Sequence) where LMP2 autos eligible to compete in the 2021 24 Hours of Le Mans are in exhaust.
