Glickenhaus believes he was successful
Indeed, while the two 007 LMH competed with the Toyota GR010 Hybrid this Sunday during the test day, Jim Glickenhaus ensures that the International Automobile Federation (FIA) and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) , organizers of the world championship, have set up a “balance of performance” (BoP) which he presents as “fair”. Indeed, the organizers have the possibility of modifying certain characteristics of the prototypes to make their performances converge. « That’s all I ever asked for to have a chance, » added Jim Glickenhaus. One of these characteristics is in particular the speed at which Toyota will be able to use its hybrid engine and benefit from four-wheel drive, which goes from 120 to 190 km/h. The objective is to erase part of the advantage that the Japanese manufacturer can derive from its choice to have a hybrid engine. “I didn’t say I wanted it to be 120mph, I just said having four-wheel drive shouldn’t come with a huge advantage. I have great respect for what the ACO and the FIA have done. They looked at all the data and it came up with what I believe to be a fair BoP. What will have to be proven on the track.
