2020 will be very interesting.
Even though I have been very disappointed with the race, especially the LMP1 class, especially this year, I have decided to soldier on to see these cars.
I'll be 62, it will be my 19th Le Mans and I will make a decision then wether to attend my 20th, or watch it from home.
I hope they have got it right.

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...

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?

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

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
