Le Mans Hypercar: First details emerge about road-relevant endurance series

Alex Misoyannis • The hotly-anticipated, heavily overhauled top tier of the 2020/21 World Endurance Championship has finally been named: Le Mans Hypercar (LMH). First announced in June 2018, the new hypercar class replaces the outgoing LMP1 rules, and aims to draw a closer connection between the racing on track and the sales race in the showrooms. Alongside the name announcement, a number of key rules were also detailed in a report from Motorsport.

Tesla Nurburgring record: The real reason Nico Rosberg isn’t driving

Former Formula 1 driver Nico Rosberg won’t be behind the wheel of Tesla’s Nurburgring record attempt because he isn’t qualified enough – and it’s likely he wasn’t aware of the rules when he offered his driving services via Twitter. While Rosberg is qualified to race on the circuit, he doesn’t have a licence that makes him eligible to participate in car industry track testing days, which involves a three-day assessment, training and accreditation process.
