Before we proceed to the list of marques, it's worth reiterating the differences between LMDh and LMH regulations. LMDh is essentially a successor to the successful DPi platform IMSA introduced in 2017. As was the case previously, manufacturers must base their new designs upon a next-generation LMP2 chassis, of which there are four licensed constructors: Oreca, Dallara, Ligier and Multimatic. Engine choice remains free within the scope of regulations, but all cars must now be fitted with a spec hybrid system built jointly by Bosch (inverter), Williams Advanced Engineering … [Read more...] about Who will race in WEC and IMSA with LMDh/LMH cars in 2023?
