-Other than LMP1, the "small" prototype category LMP2 remained completely unchanged for 2014, allowing competitors to continue racing their existing chassis. Open protypes are still allowed in this class and manufacturers are discouraged – “The ACO do not wish to encourage the Manufacturers to invest in LMP2 in any developments which improve the performance of the cars. The main objectives for these cars must be reliability, safety and a low maintenance cost. “ Also the rules for the LMP2 engines remain unchanged, and for cost reasons, these need to be based on production engines.+In the "small" prototype category LMP2, the rules essentially remain unchanged for 2014, allowing competitors to continue racing their existing chassis, however cars conforming to the 2014 specification can also be entered.
