5 weeks to go until the start of departure week, so seemed about the right time to start this years thread.


I must have hibernated through the winter and early spring  Grin If it's only 5 weeks to go I had better get my act together....

If its like before, they'll handicap the old LMP1s, to ensure that the Hypercars win, but they will all break down. Grin

Apologies for such scepticism so early in the week

Current privateer LMP1Ls will be 'grandfathered' for the 2020/21 season to race alongside the new Hypercars or whatever they are called by then

Bykolles  racing are going to do a hypercar and hope to be ready for 2020.

SO - does it mean that 2020 will actually be a MIXED grid of current LMP1's (which are homologated for 2019 / 2020 Super-season) AND the new Hypercar regulation cars?

Forgive me if I have missed something.

Or - does the Hypercar class at LM effectively start in 2021?

SPAGHETTI .

A wealthy man was having an affair with an Italian woman for
several years.

One night, during one of their rendezvous, she confided in
him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his
reputation or his marriage,he paid her a large sum of money
if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child.

If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also
provide child support until the child turned 18.

She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was
born. To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a
post card, and write "Spaghetti" on the back. He would then
arrange for child support payments.

One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused
wife. Honey," she said, "you received a very strange post
card today."

Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it ," he said. The
wife obeyed, and, watched as her husband read the card,
turned white, and fainted.

On the card was written: V
V
V
V
V
V
V
V
V
V
V
V

"Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Two with meatballs, one
without !!!!

This will lose...nay, has lost...me Sad :
https://assets.lemans.org/explorer/pdf/courses/2018/fia-wec/fia-wec-regulations-2020.pdf

Especially:
"New 2020 WEC LMP1 hypercar regulations revealed including success ballast

In a bid to avoid “extreme development budgets”, the new 2020 cars will be required to carry success ballast linked to how many championship points they have scored. The weight will be added in increments of half a kilo per point up to a maximum of 50kg."


Nothing like some good ol' socialism, huh? Punish the successful. Wonderful... Roll Eyes
May as well have Dallara build one car for everyone, throw some different stickers on for variety, and voila, instant BoPing. Isn't that fun.... Cry

It's been a nice ride for me since '65...

I had the privilege of making a small contribution to the production of this book. It's an epic master work that is brimming with pictures and personal stories of Le Mans. Take a look at what Autoweek had to say about it...
