New rules: the BMW again soon in the battle for Le Mans victories?

The FIA WEC is a comprehensive change of the regulations, the new manufacturer lines for the king’s class of the long sport is to inspire. BMW ranks as one of the carmaker, to be offset by the new set of rules in the position to fight at a manageable cost to overall victories in races such as the 24h Le Mans. In recent years, the cost for a LMP1 were racing cars, with chances for the overall victory in the three-digit million range, which would make only a few manufacturers.

The result of the high cost was observed this year in Le Mans In the LMP1 class, Toyota was up against not a single factory team and could actually beat. With views of the lap times and the long Performance, the Japanese were stretching after the withdrawal of Audi and Porsche, in fact, out of competition, on-the-go, which is why the attention of many viewers shifted in Le Mans on the slower classes, LMP2 and GTE.

Thus, the voltage tracks the long race of the FIA WEC rotates again in the future, to the absolute top class that wants to implement the FIA, apparently, some of the Changes. According to are the first proposals on fertile ground, and have ensured that many manufacturers through a commitment to think about: Aston Martin, McLaren, Ford, and BMW are not the only car maker that with an appropriate framework, an introduction.

It is clear that the works have very specific ideas: All want to be able to compete with a car that suits your brand. All want to frame a reasonable cost. All want spectacular motorsports. And all want a Chance at the overall victory, because, of course, no one wants to go with his brand behind.

The solution could be a single Chassis and many single parts, so a similar concept as in the DTM. Thus, the cost per manufacturer could be pushed to around 30 million euros per season – a figure that would make the topic for many corporations to be an attractive Option.
