13 June Portugal 8 Hours of Portimão

Thursday’s WMSC bulletin also made reference to the convergence between LMH and LMDh.

“The World Motor Sport Council has now approved technical regulations amendment in order to achieve performance convergence of Le Mans Hypercar (LMH) and Le Mans Daytona h (LMDh).”

Existing LMP2 technical regulations will be retained until the end of 2023. The move means that the existing P2 formula introduced in 2017 will continue through a seventh year in 2023.

It was initially planned that the 2017 rule book, under which only four constructors are licensed to build P2 machinery, would have a four-year lifecycle through to the end of 2020.

Sporting and Technical regulations for the LMP3 Endurance Cup, part of this year’ FIA Motorsport Games, have been approved.
