The ACO will probably want to announce new rules in advance so that new cars can be built before old ones become illegal - if they want to do it right for once... It's all a bit like the 2013 Addess Lotus LMP2 car that is designed to the 2014 LMP1 cockpit rules; teams looking at building a new LMP2 for 2015 will want to make sure their designs are future-proof.

Contrast that with Mike Newton: he got screwed over when the rules transitioned to current LMP2 when his car was penalized because it was missing a fin and wasn't homologated like the French Oreca was - and might well lose again with his updated WFR/Tiga that will be new for 2014, just before new closed cars meant for future rules appear.
