https://www.endurance-info.com/fr/pa...-pour-octobre/, this article has information on the hypercar, slated for October, and it also has Vasselon's comments about the eot at Le Mans. He confirms theres no success handicap (applause from me) applied to the cars for the 24 hours. Thankfully we can see the real progress made by the lmp1's

Pretty sure is still not entirely sure though, isn't it :/ I remember back in Spa 2018 when Dragonspeed was angry about the penalties being applied if they did too lengthy stints (in the fear of their waiver-bronze driver), and then some people in the sportscar media claimed they had seriously misinterpreted the rules and such would never really happen. Of course, it did happen. Then, after the stint caps were axed for Fuji, everyone also thought they would never come back... until it did.

The last time around Toyota was able to bring it back for oneoff appearance because they had the VETO right for such, I wonder if they still do...

Maybe this year, they announce the comeback of it 30 minutes before practice, in revised bulletin?

I guess if there is one single not-entirely-negative thing about bop racing, it's that no such absurd invention of separation is possible. There are other horrible inventions in great numbers but not that. The stint limit is basically the reverse counterpart of the reference lap time absurdity in Creventic racing

I guess they were still in the "hybrid has an efficiency advantage so let them show it" mood. Obviously the efficiency part is true but the mandated stint length is the wrong way to go about it.

Yes... rather than showing it off via natural way - obviously the advantages of hybridization are massive - they ended up with the most arbitrary method possible.

edit: thought better on the Audi parable

Wow, such a relief! We knew it would be that way, but when someone confirms, thats even better! Toyota made a big progress this year, I can see them making 3:12 lap at LM

That is not exactly the way I see it. Yes, success handicap is axed for LM but there still is an EoT going on that can be waived anytime (remember season 2018 where it was completely changed before even the first race).

I hope that after 6,5 year of racing with the current ruleset, so much data gathered plus the hindsight of more than year racing with success handicap, FINALLY the ACO can bring something close to a good balance between work hybrid cars and privateers "standard" ones.

That means I would be happy if Rebellion are 2 to 3" per lap off the race pace at Le Mans.

Agree, that 1 extra lap mandatory advantage was clearly due toyota huge influence on everything related to tech/sport regulamentations
