The Automobile Club De L’Ouest (ACO) has revealed a detailed framework for the proposed 2020 regulations the top class of the FIA World Endurance Championship (and therefore Le Mans 24 Hours) this morning at its annual press conference at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
As expected the cars will be prototype-based with styling designed to ensure highly visible relevance to the brand fielding each car. A single hybrid system (200 kw c.271 bhp) will power the cars through the front wheels with a proviso that any manufacturer hybrid systems must be made commercially available to customers.
A range of normally aspirated and turbocharged engine choices will be possible (as now) with a 520 kw /c.700 bhp maximum proposed.
Subject to the finalisation of the remaining technical issues, DSC expects that the final regulations, will be submitted for approval by the World Motorsport Council later this year, with opportunities for submission in both October and December.
