Koenigsegg can participate in an endurance racing


Christian von Kenigsegg said that the Swedish producer of giperkar founded by him is interested in participation in a 24-hour race in Le Mans in a new class for vehicles of the specified segment.

After FIA announced all rules for the series replacing LMP1, mister von Kenigsegg said that he is interested in participation in this series, but he needs to get acquainted with the offered terms in more detail.

the Head of the Swedish company said that the first set of rules really excluded any opportunity for participation in races for its brand and also noted that the new rules announced last week are more feasible, but at the company yet of time was not full them to estimate. The interest from the producer from Sweden is retained, but there are no concrete statements meanwhile.

Speaking at the Geneva motor show in March of this year and also in September of last year mister Kenigsegg spoke about interest in an endurance racing for giperkar. Then the head of the Swedish company said that the brand does not see any sense to participate in an endurance racing as the restrictions concerning productivity will make its cars less powerful in comparison with Porsche 911 and Ferrari 458.

of Nova of the rule of races say that hyper penalties have to have the minimum weight of 1100 kg and the engine with power no more than 750 horsepowers. The new class will open in a season 2020/2021. Aston Martins, Toyota and Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus already accepted a call.

If the Koenigsegg company really decides to participate in races, she can debut with giperkary Jesko, but it will be in that case necessary to reduce engine capacity since 1600 to 750 horsepowers. It should be noted that not so long ago Swedish brand submitted the version of the specified car intended for participation in races. It means that the company has serious intentions.
