The 2016 regs are still current, with some minor amendments, as published on Thursday 04 July.

Article 11: Eligibility
"In the group LMGTE AM only cars having 1 season old or fully in compliance with the specifications of the previous season car will be admitted."
'Season' replaces 'year' because of the Superseason overlap.

Article 333: Lubrication
Oil radiators redefined as heat exchangers.

Article 401: Fuel tank
"Location - Original location may include alternative energy storage volumes integrated in the road car primary structure and provided that the road car structure remains unmodified and the volumes are external to the driver compartment (Hybrid battery location). "
In other words, if the road car has a hybrid system, the location of the battery can be considered as part of the original fuel tank location.

Article 404: Fuel flow metering (new rule)
A homologated "Fuel Flow Meter" (Technical List n°45) must be integrated into the fuel system according to the specification included in Appendix and the supplier instructions.

Article 503: Lighting system
An optional additional auxiliary lighting equipment may be homologated providing that the bodywork shape remains identical.

Article 605: Diff and final drive
Limited slip diff: Preload adjustment must be passive and only possible with the use of tools.
Oil cooling: Oil radiators redefined as heat exchangers.

Article 701: Axle parts
Subframes: The steering rack, the engine supports and the gearbox supports may be mounted on the subframe.
Ballast may be mounted on the subframe.

Article 804: Steering
Power steering: Cooling of the power steering fluid is authorized.

Article 901-1: Interior
Additional equipment permitted inside the cockpit: electronic equipment was previously to be contained in boxes with screwed covers removable with tools. This requirement has been removed.
Interior equipment must be able to withstand a deceleration of 25g without
detaching.

Article 902: Exterior
Glazing: The rear window may be replaced by a non-transparent material provided that it fulfils any other requirements stated in the present regulations (i.e. fire resistance, leak-proof, etc…).

Article 1002: Safety seat and safety harness
Something about seat mountings...
