Le ultime notizie dal Consiglio Mondiale di oggi:
As previously announced, the FIA World Endurance Championship - in partnership with the ACO - will comprise a minimum of six events, including the ?Le Mans 24 Hours?. Apart from this event, the duration of the races will be six to 12 hours. The Championship is exclusively reserved for Le Mans Prototype (LMP) and Le Mans Grand Touring Endurance (GTE) cars, although cars using technologies considered to be innovative may be admitted without scoring points. FIA World Endurance Championship titles
will be awarded to the champion Drivers and Manufacturer (reserved for the LMP1 category). In addition, a World Cup
will be awarded to the winning LMGTE Manufacturer (including pro and am), as well as FIA Endurance Trophies
to the winning teams of LMP2, LME GTAM, LMGTE PRO and best private LMP1.
For all events other than the Le Mans 24 Hours, points will be awarded according to the following scale for all categories:
1st 25 points
2nd 18 points
3rd 15 points
4th 12 points
5th 10 points
6th 8 points
7th 6 points
8th 4 points
9th 2 points
10th 1 point
And beyond 0.5 point (awarded to any car classified lower than 10th in the general classification)
For the Le Mans 24 Hours only, these points will be doubled
In each category an additional point will be awarded to the car in Pole Position and each driver of its crew.
In order to control costs, there will be limits on private testing
and the number of engines used during a season.
The technical regulations are based on the current 2011 ACO LMP and GTE rules with some adjustments:
- Review of the equivalence between gasoline and diesel technologies
- Reinforcement of safety (aerodynamic of cars; rear view visibility for GT cars; braking of hybrid cars)
