LMP2’s 2025 Generation will undergo ‘Adjustment of Performance’ twice a season
The AOP process is targeted at keeping the four chassis equal
The ACO has announced further details on the 2025 next generation of LMP2 machinery.
At the forefront of the presentation in Friday morning’s annual Press Conference at the 24H Le Mans, the ACO disclosed that the category will feature a new ‘Adjustment of Performance’ process.
Similar, but different to BoP (President of the ACO Pierre Fillion was keen to point out) the system will be implemented twice a season to ensure that the four chassis manufacturers remain on a level playing field.
The decision is likely to have followed the developments of the 2017 generation which saw ORECA become the dominant and most prevalent chassis within two seasons.
LMP2 has had doubt cast over its future with the expanding list of manufactures joining the Hypercar class, with suggestion that the category risks extinction. However, this morning the ACO confirmed they are committed to this new era of LMP2 machinery, citing it as “a crucial category for endurance racing and Le Mans.”
Dallara, Ligier, Multimatic and ORECA are the four suppliers for whom their LMP2 chassis form the ‘spine’ of the booming LMDh category.
