ACO calls team meeting

The ACO has announced that it will hold a meeting at the end of the month where it will sit down with the manufacturers involved in the Le Mans Series.

The move follows Peugeot's protest against the legality of the new Audi R15 ahead of the Le Mans 24 Hours – with the French squad believing that the front bodywork of the Audi constitutes an illegal aerodynamic device.

The governing body of the famous La Sarthe classic will now look to find 'common ground' with the teams during the meeting, which will also include discussion of the regulations for future years.

“At the request of the manufacturers presently involved in the Le Mans Series events, l'Automobile Club de l'Ouest will hold a meeting for technical directors and engineers in charge of the design of the cars in Le Mans at the end of June,” a brief statement read.

“The aim of this meeting is to study together with them the application of the 2010/2011 regulations, listen to their proposals and answer their questions.”
