The width limit for GTE has been increased to 2050 mm. Hence the recent wide body kit for Porsche.

That's an additional 2 inches they have to play with. The mechanical grip on those cars must be serious.

MitchZ06 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Another 55mm to play with should mean a ton more aero and mechanical grip

The maximum width has been increased for the whole GTE class. That is why Porsche built the wide body 911 this year.

Isn't the 2012 C6R ZR1 2050mm as well? I think all the top teams are that width. I'll have to double check about the Aston Martin.

All 2012 cars were built to the new max width forced on the ACO by the F458 being wide, no waivers this year for that...

After all, you can make a car WIDER, but NARROWER would be, um, INTERESTING.
Why do cars continually have to get BIGGER? When are they going back to small, slim, light, and quick?

Just realised where we are. About 5 miles Left of Topic!

SORRY!

(I agree, they CAN corner quicker, but disagree about a pure HANDLING advantage? That's weight distribution, surely?)

Would be nice to hear an official announcement but Im not expecting anything to be shown as their focus would be on showing off P1 right now.

Pretty sure 'oh just a race car' won't take any of the spotlight away from P1, my god that car makes me want to do illegal/semi-legal/silly things to get one...
