The new regulations, as revealed in last week’s AUTOSPORT , state that only the highest finishing car in LMP1 will score manufacturer points, while only the six best scores – the Le Mans 24 Hours must be included – will count. The regulations are designed to foster competition between Audi and Toyota, which was persuaded to step into the breach and expand its attack in 2012 following Peugeot’s immediate withdrawal from sportscar racing on the eve of the WEC entry deadline

This year’s 24th edition of the Race of Champions will be held in Dusseldorf’s ESPRIT arena on 3-4 December. The German venue, which also hosted last year’s end-of-season event, replaces Frankfurt’s Commerzbank-Arena after a late clash of dates forced RoC organisers to find a new venue.
