This series won't start until after the conclusion of next year's 24 Hours of Le Mans, but it sounds like Aston Martin is ready to hit the ground running with perhaps the most bonkers auto it's ever constructed. The cars will compete in the entire super season from September 2020, including the 2021 Le Mans - marking a century since an Aston first competed at La Sarthe.
"Now we've got the rule book, we are seriously looking at bringing McLaren back to endurance racing", Brown reportedly told the Le Mans website. It will adopt the name "Hypercars" instead and will consist of two types of racers: prototypes in the style of a hypercar and racing versions of road-going hypercars.
The auto will not feature a hybrid system.
"The Aston Martin Valkyrie is primed for such a challenge and sits perfectly within the ACO's new "hypercar" rule framework". It allows for petrol- and diesel-powered cars to race side by side with hybrids, with "balance of performance" regulations created to keep the competition close. It will feature a bespoke version of the road car's 6.5-litre V12 engine, a carbon-fibre structure and aerodynamic know-how gleaned from F1 thanks to the firm's partnership with Red Bull Racing.
An official video, published just as the team was winning the LMP1 division of this year's race, shows Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda trying out the forthcoming Aston Martin Valkyrie rival alongside test driver Kamui Kobayashi.

Kim released the sex tape with Ray J in 2003 but claimed in 2018 that she was on ecstasy when she shot the naked film with him. Johnson said he bought that advice for years because he thought that was what he was supposed to do.
"Budget cap comes in 2021, the soonest we'd be ready here is 2021 so there's a - as you move to restructure your organisation, that's opportune timing".
Not many details about this variant of the vehicle are known yet, but Aston specified they will use the existing normally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine, only tweaked in such a way as to be suitable for the competition. Bringing to bear all of our previous experience and knowledge of competing at the top levels of motorsport, we embark on this most ambitious project with the necessary ingredients for success. And it looks like the new regulations will permit that.
As a outcome, each lap of the 13 kilometre Le Mans circuit will increase from the current 3 minute 13 second benchmark to around three-and-a-half minutes.
