Success ballast will be imposed for LMGTE Am cars entered in the championship. It will be in effect at all events, except for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The ballast calculation system uses the results of previous races (if any have been held) and championship positions, provided that all cars start any given season with a ballast of 0kg.



The scale of points awarded will be updated for the 2019-2020 season to account for the introduction of 4-hour events.




Technical regulations for the top-level endurance category which will be implemented from the 2020-2021 season were approved. These are based on the innovative concept of a ‘performance window’, aimed at creating close competition between differentiated hypercar prototype designs. The regulations include:


    Aerodynamics capped by regulations to control cost and ensure that performance does not compromise bodywork design

    Moveable aerodynamic devices front and rear

    Maximum 520kW combustion engine encouraging diversity

    Front-wheel energy recovery and release system up to 200kW



Cost control measures include a five-year homologation period, and limitations on parts per season, testing, tyres and personnel.




The complete regulations are available on fia.com
