Nissan Working On Something Radical For Le Mans


Nissan Unveils Le Mans Prototype Plans With World's Fastest Electric Racing CarNissan is the next to be throwing its hat (and considerable R&D budget) into the proverbial ring.
Just what that means remains to be seen, but Nissan is reportedly in active discussions with the ACO (the body that governs the race) to see how far it can stretch the regulations.
The ACO has taken an intriguingly different approach to equalizing performance, mandating the maximum amount of energy that can be used per lap instead of telling teams what kind of engines they can use.

Unfortunately the rules would prohibit Nissan fielding the ZEOD RC (with its narrow front track) in the LMP1 class, relegating it instead to the Garage 56 slot for experimental racers (which the DeltaWing filled before).
