Air Conditioning Now Recommended For Le Mans 2006
Obligatory For 2007

The ACO’s President, Jean-Claude Plassart, has announced a change to the club’s 2006 regulations: instead of air conditioning being a definite requirement for all closed cars, such temperature control is now recommended for this year – and becomes a “obligatoire” in 2007.

Minimum weights for all cars are still increased for 2006, by 25 kg, with slight increases in restrictor sizes, as originally announced.

The exceptional conditions at Le Mans last year – when the cockpit temperatures in some front-engined cars apparently reached 70 to 80 degrees Celsius - brought about the idea of all closed cars being fitted with air conditioning.
