WEC commits to hypercar rules from 2020/21 and reveals details
Aston Martin to build Valkyrie hypercar for new 2020/21 WEC rules
Hopefully they can get at least two other manufacturers to follow suit!
well I think McLaren will go to WEC but not yet from what ive read over the recent years I would say that we could be looking at maybe 2020 or 2021 le mans then a full season the next season in either 2021 or 2022
F1Brits_90 - the 3:30 target is an average race lap time I believe, which would put the hypercar pole somewhere in the low 3:20s, most likely. In any event the LMP2s can be slowed very easily since they all use a standard engine, and that's what I'd expect to happen.
Galahad apparently on the condition that at least 20 production models are created over a two-year period
The highlights of the technical details include a revised weight, lowered slightly to 1100kg and a changed power output of 750bhp in order for the LMP1 replacement category to reach 3m30s laps in race trim at Le Mans. The hybrid systems will not be mandatory, but those who choose to head down this route must not exceed 270bhp, with a GTE-based BoP system set to be applied in-season to keep the hybrid and non-hybrid machines close in performance.
