The P1 class leaders are both Peugeot's 908 HDi FAP. You can see themClosed cockpits were taken out by rules a while ago, I think as part of a aero regulations that brought speed down. Along with reducing speed was a belief that the public would be more interested in the racing if they could see actual humans driving the cars. Guess they think it worked.Thanks billy.... I just watched Playstation do a pit and driver change. I guess you could add a rider. Certainly roll over protection. I'd say fuk it and buy me a closed cockpit design.. just looks so stupid.I beleive they do certain races with two peeps, ergo shotgun seat and rollover protection.
And Rick... yes, all of life's questions are answered here.
So much disinformation which will become sa fact.
Closed cockpits were never taken out by the rules.
They do not have to have aircon but a driver cooling system and windscreen demist is nessacary.
The car is designed to rules that state you have to have space for a passenger but a passenger is never carried during a race.
They do not change which side the driver sits, the cars are way too complicated to do that.
clean might have just checked but IMSA became GrandAm not American Le Mans and the GA cars are built to a totally differrent set of rules than the cars racing this weekend in le Mans.
