Following the World Motor Sport Council meeting of 30 November 2016, the FIA has formalized the creation of GTE World Championship, eases technical requirements for potential LMP1-H entrants in the World Endurance Championship, with the wording of the Sporting Regulations updated in reference to the following topics, which had been approved previously:
Creation of an LMGTE World Championship.
New tyre limitations per category as from 2017: reduction of the numbers of tyres authorized per event for the LMP1 and LMGTE categories.
Limitation of the continuous driving time to 80 minutes in races where the ambient temperature reaches 32°C, as a matter of safety.
Technical waivers provided to the new entrants in the Manufacturer’s World Endurance Championship (LMP1 Hybrid) in order to help any potential Manufacturers contemplating entry in the championship.
In addition, the FIA GT Commission will work towards doubling the number of FIA GT events, one dedicated to manufactures – the FIA GT World Cup – and the second dedicated to a more traditional PRO/AM format. This additional event would take place in a different venue and at a different date to the FIA GT World Cup. The Commission aims to launch an invitation to tender for a promoter to propose the full concept of an FIA GT3 PRO/AM customer event.
With Honda America just gaining homologation for the Acura GT3, GT’s expansion is set to reach new heights.
The complete Sporting Regulations with the updated wording will be available in the Regulations section at FIA.com.
