Ahead of the Practice sessions for the 86th running of the 24 Heurs Du Man, the FIA Endurance Committee has made changes to the Equivalence of Technology (EOT) tables.
For LMP1-Hybrid cars, no changes have been made since the Le Mans test day, with a minimum mass of 878kg, Hybrid ERS still being capped at 8MJ per lap, Petrol energy capped at 124.9MJ/lap, as well as a maximum fuel flow rate of 80kg/h, and 35.1kg/stint. Fuel Rig restrictor diameter has also been set at 19mm.
For LMP1-Non Hybrid cars, no distinction has been made between Turbocharged and Naturally Aspirated engines, with the maximum fuel flow rate of 108kg/h from the test day, and minimum mass of 833kg being retained, while Petrol energy has been capped at 205MJ/h, as well as a maximum fuel flow rate of 108kg/h, and 52.5kg/stint limit. Fuel Rig restrictor diameter has also been set at 21.35mm.
Note that with this EOT, Toyota is expected to retain a minimum advantage of 0.5s per lap, compared to the fastest Privateer (non-hybrid cars) as stipulated in the regulations, as well as a level of energy efficiency per lap.
