Toyota (as the last manufacturer standing under the current LMP1 rules) and Aston Martin (as the manufacturer who seemed to be the most keen on the “hypercar” rules) were the manufacturers who I thought would need to sign up to compete at Le Mans post 2021 as an absolute minimum. ", Said Peugeot Brand Director Jean-Philippe Imparato: "The Peugeot brand’s passion for motorsport has always played a core role in achieving the many victories we have scored in our history. Your email address will not be published. “The Aston Martin Valkyrie is primed for such a challenge and sits perfectly within the ACO’s new ‘hypercar’ rule framework. You would need to significantly slow those cars down in order to maintain a suitable gap between the LMP2 cars and the LMP1 cars, but slowing them down would then put them too close to the GTE cars, so they would also need to be slowed down as well. The Hypercar formula makes for some cool looking renders but there are so many flaws in it that i’ll be amazed if it last’s too long. It will be interesting to see if any others sign up… I’m looking at you McLaren and Ferrari. This is why I come here. F1 VIDEO: Has Ricciardo made the right call leaving Renault for McLaren? If the have it rev high enough it will sound like an old school screaming F1 car. Developed with their F1 partners Red Bull, the Valkyrie was Adrian Newey’s project, incorporating elements of the Red Bull F1 car’s design. They can use everything Porsche and audi learnt (even some personell is still in the group?) My dream would be for Ferrari to get back in the fight for overall in the 24 hour. Peugeot is definitely not among the brands known for their supercars and hypercars but this might change in the not-so-distant future. “The FIA World Endurance Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans represent the ultimate challenge for the Aston Martin Valkyrie – the world’s most extreme hypercar,” King said. I think I did already see Brown mentioning that they would like to get to Lemans, let’s hope they do it. I like a lot about this concept, but I don’t like that they are making them all have the same BHP. Mazda wasn’t interested last time I heard, bmw went to formula e and ford chose going dpi in imsa. Anyone see the corvette team jumping into the top class? Boutique car manufacturer Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus revealed plans to enter the championship with a new car, the SCG 007. However, both the road and race car are currently undergoing development – with the name set to be announced when the car goes to track testing next year. Jean Todt, FIA President, said: “Welcome back to Peugeot to the FIA World Endurance Championship with the Le Mans Hypercar Project. The French manufacturer’s programme is set to commence in 2022. I’d guess they could just keep adding more ballast, add restrictors and reduce downforce. Details of the programme will be announced at the beginning of 2020. Peugeot Sport has confirmed its commitment to the Le Mans Hypercar category, the incoming the top class of the FIA World Endurance Championship. @mazdachris, hm, interesting point, not sure what the plan is there either. Peugeot has a long-standing history of endurance racing involvement, having won the 24 Hours of Le Mans on three occasions, in 1992, 1993 and in 2008. Aston Martin will enter two Valkyrie cars into the 2020-2021 WEC season, including the 2021 Le Mans 24 Hours. “I can think of no better way to do that than to compete in a world championship and the most prestigious and famous race of all.”. Aston Martin initially planned to enter a car based on the Valkyrie road-going model. ByKolles Racing has also announced it will enter the WEC Hypercar class with a new prototype effort, while Toyota Gazoo Racing is expected to retain its TS050 Hybrid programme which currently competes in the LMP1 class. F1 video: The latest on the 2021 driver market - Who will land the final seats? Peugeot and I have a common history, it reminds me of good memories. It’s also not really an aerodynamics or efficiency race either – in season development is banned so, once you have homologated your engine and the bodywork packages you are allowed to, those are fixed for the rest of the year. Pretty. MazdaChris (@mazdachris) 14th June 2019, 15:16. The significant cost savings permitted by the WEC’s new Hypercar regulations and the confirmation that the series will feature hybrid power units led the Groupe PSA Executive Committee to approve the Peugeot brand's proposal to participate in the world’s premier endurance racing championship from 2022, with marketing benefits in-line with Groupe PSA standards. Wec Hypercar Class Entries Wec Finalises Hyper Sport Rules For 2020 21 Fia Confirms Details Of New Wec Hypercar Class Evo Le Mans Hypercar 2020 2021 Rules All You Need To Know Car Magazine ... Fia Mandates Manufacturer Linked Entries For Hypercar Class The current privateer cars would also be significantly faster than the proposed “hypercars”, but the ACO has previously promised the privateer entrants that they would develop a system that allowed the privateers to “grandfather”, or partially carry over, their current cars. This kinda looks quite cool but I’m really concerned about these hypercar rules. Toyota and SMP Racing had already confirmed two-car entries for 2019/20, while the entry list also confirms that Rebellion Racing will return with its pair of Gibson-engined R-13s. The regulations of the new series dictate that every manufacturer should build at least 20 road-legal examples of the hypercars that are going to be used in the competition. Following the technical collaboration between Red Bull and Aston Martin which produced the Valkyrie, headed by Red Bull F1 technical head Adrian Newey, the supercar will now go racing following the confirmation of WEC’s Hypercar class. Peugeot Sport has confirmed its commitment to the Le Mans Hypercar category, the incoming the top class of the FIA World Endurance Championship. That would be amazing if you ask me, Darryn Smith (@darryn) 14th June 2019, 20:34. The French marque has just confirmed it will return to the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2022 and while the exact details of its program are not known yet, this move basically means the brand should launch a production hypercar. ByKolles won't contest full 2019/20 WEC season, WEC finalises 'hyper sport' rules for 2020/21, switches its focus to building a car for the 2020/21 hypercar regulations, switch to Oreca machinery for the new season, known to be pushing to be granted a late entry with a privateer Ford GT programme, Ferrari rubbishes talk of F1 cars not being identical, Mercedes explains why it wanted Bottas on hard tyres, Norris says Stroll "doesn't seem to learn" after clash, Crutchlow to have scan after feeling "snap" in shoulder, Jimmie Johnson, Ganassi announce Carvana sponsorship for 2021, Teruel MotoGP: Morbidelli wins from Suzuki's Rins and Mir, Inter Europol Competition steps up to WEC in 2021, Magnussen should not give up on F1 dream, says father Jan, Toyota drivers: No handicaps for finale would be "unfair", Grosjean "hugely interested" in Peugeot Hypercar drive, Peugeot starts analysing potential drivers for Hypercar programme, Michael Schumacher first World Sportscar win - 1990 WSC Mexico, Spa-Francorchamps: 1985 - Jochen Mass onboard, FIA WEC: 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps - race highlights. Two new-generation Aston Martin Vantage GTEs, one entered by the factory and one by the TF Sport squad, join the five Porsches and four Ferraris. Everything is happening in 2021, new F1 rules, new WEC rules. Right now, the top LMP2 cars would be five seconds a lap faster than the “hypercar” proposal – if you had set a 3m30s lap time today, it would have put you 26th on the grid, behind 16 of the 19 LMP2 cars. What about Lamborghini joining? I hope they don’t do it with fuel restrictions though. Six GTE Pro cars complete the field. @geemac – does the WEC allow electric powertrains and battery swaps? The main goal of the new project is to ensure manufacturers will have significantly smaller budgets, no larger than one-quarter of current levels in LMP1, and that there will be "freedom of design based on a hypercar concept.". This makes it possible to incorporate, with the support of Peugeot design, the aesthetic detail of the brand,” said a statement from the French manufacturer, which has already started the development of a four-wheel drive hybrid hypercar. Lots to keep you interested there. That said, I would be interested to know if Toyota’s safety concerns have been properly addressed (Toyota having raised quite legitimate questions about how the ACO would ensure a road car derived chassis would be suitable for use at Le Mans). The proposed “hypercar” rules also have the effect of splitting the world of sportscar racing, since it is increasing the divide between the IMSA series in the US and the WEC. However, the British manufacturer later decided to put its Le Mans Hypercar program on hold. Pat Ruadh (@fullcoursecaution) 14th June 2019, 18:24, I like the DPi class and was previously in the @gt-racer camo that a unified DPi esque class was the way forward, but it’s perhaps not out of the realms of possibility that some the the bigger GTE outfits like Chevy/Porsche/Ford could maybe make the leap up to Hyper regs and start competing for outrights and I’d be all for that, Krommenaas (@krommenaas) 14th June 2019, 17:42.
