DSC has an update on the BOP of hypercars.

http://www.dailysportscar.com/2021/0...w-lexicon.html

Besides the known Alpine test with the lmp2, it seems Toyota may have also had some on track running with a P2 car.

Also some significant sim work with the toyota and Glick lead to an additional 10kg for the Toyota.

As expected, the spec tyre element of LMP2 is an important part of their speed reduction. Worse traction, less lateral grip, longer braking distances...

I know the reduction in hypercar lap times was intended to decrease costs, but if the cars are all ballasted right now to make that 1030kg, it won't cost more to take weight out of the cars would it?

Then you might not need to adjust P2 as much? Or am i missing something?

However...

Tyre plan dropped, bigger power cut, low drag bodywork only and a 20kg weight gain.

I think making a complete arse of regulations should now be called "doing an ACO"

Because they'd absolutely ACO'd this.

I'm quite sure that's an April Fool's Day joke. DSC makes a very believable joke every year.

Very sadly not this year - it's entirely true - story now includes the later ACO statement

Damn

I wouldn't have thought Goodyear saying the driveability of their tires is unacceptable.

The entire Hypercar regulation thing is a mess. The weight limit increase was for a cars engine that isn't even going to enter now.

It's not like the LMP1s had to be that expensive to achieve the speeds they were doing either. The R13 unleashed could lap as far as the TS050.

It's just generally a mess. And now we're going right back to having LMP2s and GTEs being far too close in top speed. Which is something the ACO managed to get away from with the last generation of LMP2s, which was excellent.

The low drag bodywork should help with top speeds at least.
Looking for the positives here...

With the power decrease and weight increase the LMP'2 and GTE's at LM are going to be I'd say with in 10-15 seconds a lap at LeMans of each other and the back marker LMP2's barely beating GTE's and in some cases slower. So now will the ACO/FIA slow the GTE's if that is the case. On another thought could we see an exodus of LMP2 teams from the WEC to say IMSA or change classes if they want to continue on that course with how they are slowing LMP2.
