Appendix C is noteable too, particularly for spectators - maybe the ACO can actually get the position indicators to work this year?

It's a great idea in concept, but by ten hours only half of them work anyway.

Semi stressed engine, homologated in LMGT1 and used in
a production car built in a quantity of at least 1000 units per
year.


Do they sell 1000 units per year of any particular production car?

I'd be staggered if they didn't according to wikirubbish they do 5,000 DB9s per year

LMP2 :• 80 litres maximum on board

So, as per expected, down from 90 litres.

....and GM.

As I stated in another thread, Aston have said they'd like to use the V12, but would need performance breaks.

LMP2 can use a homologated diesel engine with 4400 cc displacement. The strange thing is that LMP2 diesels can also use a 80 liter tank. If they applied the same logic as in LMP1, the fuel tank should be 72 liter instead.

The LMP2 diesel regulations are interesting in that they allow two-stage turbocharging, particularly as Peugeot have a 2.2-litre inline-4 twin-turbo diesel engine in production. WR diesel for 2009?

So I assume that Zytek, Courage/ORECA, Lola etc. are all going to be in P2 this year, since P1 is "réservé plus particulièrement aux constructeurs." Correct?

I was asking more regarding Astons productions than the Vette, but thanks.

This homologated engine business in LMP2, both Normally Aspirated and Diesel strikes me as odd. So they are encouraging the use of manufacturers engines in the category, but they don't want manufacturers in the category. A bit of mixed signals there really. 4.4 l Diesel... BMW, Ford, any others?
