The FIA ​​confirms the LMH / LMDh convergence

On the occasion of the 2021 FIA Conference, the World Motor Sport Council met Thursday in Monaco for the second meeting of the year. There was talk of Endurance with a ratification of the LMH / LMDh convergence.

The World Motor Sport Council has approved the modification of the technical regulations in order to converge the performances of the premier class in FIA WEC (LMH) and of the future class of the American Endurance Championship, the IMSA with the LMDh.

A confirmed convergence between LMH and LMDh

Discussions between the IMSA and the ACO for a convergence of the two regulations so that one and the other can run in the two championships (FIA WEC / IMSA) have been started for several months. Quickly the ACO had announced that the LMDh could run in FIA WEC (which therefore includes participation in the 24 Hours of Le Mans), we were waiting since confirmation in the other direction, namely the Le Mans Hypercar in the American championship. .

Thus, with this confirmed convergence, it will now open the possibility of working on a BoP so that the FIA ​​WEC Hypercars can run on prestigious IMSA races such as the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring or even Petit Le Mans.

In addition, regarding the category below, the existing LMP2 technical regulations will be maintained until the end of 2023. This means that the new LMP2s will come into force in 2024. The sporting and technical regulations of the LMP3 Endurance Cup , which is part of this year’s FIA Games, have been approved.

The date, venue and sporting regulations for the 2021 FIA GT World Cup have been approved. The event will return to Macau’s Guia Circuit from November 17-21. The event will only take place if the obligation to undergo a mandatory quarantine on arrival in Macau is removed beforehand. The FIA ​​and the local national sports authority, the General Automobile Association of Macau-China (AAMC), have agreed on a deadline for this.
