Last November, Endurance-Info revealed that the WEC wanted to determine the BoP for the first four rounds of the season without intervening before the arrival of the centenary edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This information was confirmed in a document published today by the ACO and the FIA.


A first BoP will therefore only be in place for the 1000 miles of Sebring. In Florida, the Toyota will be the heaviest Hypercar : 1062 kg, compared to 1057 for the Ferrari, 1049 for the Peugeot and 1030 for the Glickenhaus and Vanwall. That's it for the LMH cars. For the LMDh, the weight of the Cadillac was set at 1038 kg and that of the Porsche at 1048. Power ratings range from 511 kw for the Vanwall to 520 for the Glickenhaus, while Peugeot will benefit from 518 kw compared to 517 for Peugeot and Toyota, 515 for Ferrari, and 513 for Cadillac.


Things will change significantly for the next three races, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as you can see on the second table with a notable drop in weight for the LMH hybrids, but also a decrease in power level.


As a reminder, these BoP tables are established according to the intrinsic data of the cars concerned, and therefore data collected thanks to simulation tools, in the wind tunnel or on the engine test bench.
