Was wondering the same thing. I would think it would be harder to enforce because the car dimensions are not defined in the same way. The current regs require the fin to have a surface area of 3 sq metres. You're not going to get a 3 sq m fin on a Valkyrie without it looking like a yacht. Maybe require a fin at roof height back to the rear wing? Hopefully they get scrapped altogether.

Also, the cars will be significantly heavier so maybe that will help to keep them on the ground, GTE-style.

I guess the fin should not be very different than the AMR Pro.

Good point on the weight, GTE cars didn't have the same flying problem as LMP1, but then again they weren't going as fast.

Go ask TMG and Multimatic's aero departments. Because wind tunnel testing is part of the homologation process now you just have to have the car wind tunnel or CFD certified to meet the aerodynamic stability targets rather than mandating specific features to make sure any car can. How achievable that will be without the existing devices isn't something any of us are qualified to answer.

As viewed from the side, the bodywork must cover the complete wheels above the axle centrelines and it must be possible to see the circumference of the complete wheels.
Wheel arches may be a non-continuous surface (holes, grooves, louvers, openings or cut-outs) if required to accomplish the aerodynamic safety stability criteria as defined by Article 3.11, provided that the visibility requirements above are respected.

They should just run that thing and call it a day. Maybe make the wing a little higher or whatever but that thing looks like it's 99% ready to go.

Throw some racing Michelins on it and let her rip on the track. I'd pay to see that!

Aston's Chris Goodwin again reiterating on the N24 coverage that we can expect privateer Astons on the grid - seemingly from the outset.

Or is that the factory effort will seem like a privateer effort?

Sorry, that was uncalled for. to Aston.

Last time that Aston has been in top Le Mans category we all know how the story finished. Their priority can't be selling cars to privateers, but to build a double-stint car in first place.

Fortunately for them the car is already 'built'. They need to test it and all that first but being based on the road Valkyrie is already a better deal than the last attempt.
