Goodbye open cockpits LMP1!!

http://www.lemans.org/en/races/24h/update/new-lmp1-technical-regulations-for-2014-unveiled_7618.html

The Technical Regulations for the Le Mans Prototype 1 (LMP1) class were today presented at the Automobile Club de l'Ouest's press conference, held at the Museum of the 24 Hours.

These 24 Hours of Le Mans LMP1 Technical Regulations will also, from the 1st of January 2014, cover the Le Mans Series LMP1 category, the FIA World Endurance Championship and the American Le Mans Series.

Once approved by the FIA World Council, the 24 Hours of Le Mans LMP1 Technical Regulations will be available online from late afternoon on Friday, 15th June.

6 BASIC POINTS TO REMEMBER

• New technology will be granted freedom with regard to powertrain (that is engine and hybrid system) in accordance with the development of road vehicles.

• The engines are free. The limitations of cylinders, restrictors and turbo pressures are removed.

• Significant reduction - up to 30% - of the use of fossil fuels used.

• The hybrid systems are free as long as they can be measured but are limited to two per car. The private teams are protected.

• Cars must be closed to improve safety.

• Weight and width are reduced.

Fantastic. It's the only form of racing left that pushes tech.

F1 really ought to be looking at itself hard, it's quickly losing relevance and alienating itself from the rest of the motorsport world in exchange for a cheap show.

Indycar too. The Indy 500 was once the race that pushed tech, and it hasn't been that way for many decades now.
