Fuel and tyres...


Not since 1994 have we seen Le Mans and the World Endurance Championships pit stops involve re-fueling and tyre changing being carried out at the same time.  This looks set to change in 2018.


Plans are being put forward to the Motorsport Council in December to allow a change in the rules meaning that fuel and tyres can be done at the same time.

Some in the paddock including Ford believe this will be more dangerous, others are welcoming the change.  It is not belived however this change will go as far as the IMSA pit procedure where the cars engine remains on during the stop.
