Slowly but surely, the Endurance Hypercar field is expanding. The rain of manufacturers’ announcements has delighted the public, for what will be a new golden age for the WEC from 2023.
Two monsters came out of their tavern: Ferrari and Cadillac, whose name of the cars is still unknown.
Cadillac: the second LMDh is unveiled in real life
The Cadillac prototype will make its IMSA debut next January at the 24 Hours of Daytona. It was Earl Bamber, winner at Le Mans with Porsche in 2015, who was the first to get him on the track.
The American manufacturer joins Porsche in the LMDh class. The regulations are based on those of LMP2 and the brand from across the Atlantic had to choose a chassis partner. Dallara was chosen. The name of the car remains unknown for the moment, but we already know that it is a V8 Hybrid that will fit under its hood.
Ferrari: waiting for the true colors
In Maranello, we like to be desired! The Ferrari LMH made its first laps at Fiorano, in a camouflage livery.
It is interesting to note the great singularity of the Italian prototype: a huge rear wing, which rests on not two, but three masts, including one in the center, in the extension of the shark’s wing. We are light years away from Peugeot’s concept!
The V6 Turbo Hybrid of the Hypercar Ferrari will come from the knowledge acquired in Formula 1. The transalpine manufacturer joins Toyota and Peugeot in the family of V6 and the LMH class, more permissive than the LMDh.
