The process of achieving convergence between the Le Mans Hypercar and LMDh platforms have taken a significant step forward following confirmation by the FIA of a “regulations amendment” reached ahead of the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship seasons.
Announced during Thursday’s World Motor Sport Council meeting in Monaco, the FIA, ACO and IMSA have settled on a yet-to-be-disclosed agreement that will allow the two top-class platforms to “achieve performance convergence.”
Initially announced at Daytona in January 2020, work has been ongoing to bring the two platforms together into a single category, which will be regulated through a Balance of Performance process.
