It’s real, dawgs. Hypercars will become the top class in endurance racing.

This new setup will be based on either new hypercar models or existing road cars, will be hellaciously slower than current/outgoing LMP1 rules, and are still governed by balance patches. Hybrid power, however, still remains.

Which is, admittedly, quite boring as a sport, but with Toyota and Señor Glickenhaus pretty much guaranteed to be part of these new rules and Aston Martin potentially showing up come 2020/2021, I am happy that we finally have this kind of solution.
