Ferrari commits to FIA WEC with new Hypercar
Ferrari has confirmed that it will enter the FIA World Endurance Championship’s new Hypercar category from 2023. The Italian marque will return to the top class of endurance racing for the first time since 1973 and will be yet another major manufacturer to confirm its participation in the WEC’s new Hypercar category, which is equally appealing to both global automotive brands as well as specialist firms building road-going supercars. Ferrari is set to go against the likes of Toyota, Glickenhaus, Peugeot, Porsche and Audi, who have all committed to the Hypercar category. The new-for-2021 Hypercar category is where teams and drivers can compete for overall championship victory in the FIA WEC and at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Ferrari has a long and illustrious racing history in endurance racing and at Le Mans. The manufacturer has won Le Mans outright a total of nine times, the last time in 1965 as part of the famed Ford versus Ferrari battles of the 1960s. In recent years, however, Ferrari has had plenty of success in the GT category of Le Mans, last winning the GTE Pro category in 2019 with its hugely-successful AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE Evo. The marque has won the FIA WEC LMGTE Pro title four times, including the very first FIA World Endurance GT Manufacturers’ Championship in 2017.
Nissan GT-R LM Nismo
Today, 23rd of May, announced and confirmed its LMP1 programme with a prototype that will be called Nissan GT-R LM Nismo. Twenty third date was not selected by random, as numbers two and three are read in Japanese as Ni-san, which also explains why Nissan used to raced with numbers 23 and 32 when they first entered the Twenty-Four Hour race in the middle of eighties. The new car will be raced by Nissan factory team since 2015 onwards. Nissan aim to do thing differently than current competitor and they are going to win Le Mans and WEC.
Code 80 for all WEC races
Once of the best news regarding the new WEC championship reached us following Friday's meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council. Endurance Commission approved changes of the Full Course Yellow procedure and it will now be possible to proceed without the safety car, if the situation on the track allows it, while all cars will have to reduce their speed to maximum of 80 kph. Something that will make races safer, better for spectators and especially way more fair for the participating competitors. Simply something we have been voting and calling for a long time.
