2014 FIA World Endurance Championship season
Previous: 2013 Next: 2015

The 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship season is the third season of the FIA World Endurance Championship auto racing series, co-organized by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO). The series is open to Le Mans Prototypes and grand tourer-style racing cars meeting four ACO categories. World Championships will be awarded to drivers and to LMP1 category manufacturers, while several World Cups and Trophies will be awarded for the series' other categories. The eight race season will begin in April at the Silverstone Circuit and end in November at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace.

Calendar[edit]

A provisional calendar was published by the FIA World Endurance Championship on September 20, 2013.[1] All eight races remain from the 2013 schedule, although with some dates changed. On 18 October, the calendar was revised to avoid some collisions with Formula One races.[2] At the World Motor Sport Council meeting on December 4, 2013 the FIA confirmed the 2014 schedule.[3] The round at Fuji Speedway will take place on October 12, avoiding a clash with the United SportsCar Petit Le Mans, and the provisional round at Interlagos was confirmed. The schedule was revised again on January 31, 2014, moving the São Paulo round to November 30 to avoid clashes with Formula One.[4]

The rounds at Circuit of the Americas and Bahrain International Circuit will both finish in nighttime conditions.[5]

Entries[edit]

The FIA unveiled an entry of 31 cars for the 2014 season of the World Endurance Championship, divided into five categories: Le Mans Prototype 1-Hybrid (LMP1-H), 1-Lightweight (LMP1-L), and 2 (LMP2), and Le Mans Grand Touring Endurance Professional (LMGTE Pro) and Amateur (LMGTE Am).

LMP1-H[edit]

LMP1-H becomes the unique category for the factory prototype teams in 2014 after the LMP1 category was split in two. Audi returns with a revised R18, led by the defending World Champion duo of Tom Kristensen and Loïc Duval, joined by Lucas di Grassi. 2012 World Champions Benoît Tréluyer, Marcel Fässler, and André Lotterer are in the sister Audi, while a third car will also enter the Spa and Le Mans rounds. Toyota also returns with an all-new TS040 while retaining the same drivers from their past two seasons. Porsche expands their World Endurance Championship effort beyond LMGTE with their all-new 919, bringing with them a collection of factory drivers, former Formula One driver Mark Webber, and newcomer to the championship Brendon Hartley.

LMP1-L[edit]

The new LMP1-L category, designed solely for privateers without hybrid systems in their cars, features two-time winners of the FIA Endurance Trophy for Private LMP1 Teams, Rebellion Racing. The team is developing two all-new Toyota-powered R-One chassis, but will start the season with their familiar Lolas while they await the completion of the R-Ones. Fabio Leimer of Switzerland becomes the new rookie on the team, replacing Neel Jani who has been promoted to the Porsche factory team. The Kodewa-backed Lotus team has moved up from the LMP2 category, evolving their car into the new P1/01 with a new engine in the World Championship from the British Advanced Engine Research (AER). However, Lotus missed the season's first three races due to a lack of testing.[11]

LMP2[edit]

The LMP2 class, nine strong in 2013, reduces its full season size to seven cars split amongst five teams, three chassis manufacturers, and only a single powerplant, the Nissan V8. Defending LMP2 champions OAK Racing have downsized their operation to a single Morgan entry, taking over the Russian G-Drive title that comes with driver Roman Rusinov. Strakka Racing switches from the LMP1 category to co-develop an all new LMP2 coupe chassis with Japanese manufacturer Dome, the S103. However, Strakka will only compete in the last round in Brazil, due to a lack of performance and reliability of the car. Russian SMP Racing, in conjunction with AF Corse, shifts from the European Le Mans Series with their pair of Orecas, while Hong Kong-based KCMG comes from the Asian Le Mans Series with a solo Oreca after running invitational entries in the WEC in 2013. Greaves Motorsport returns to the European Le Mans Series for 2014 after their participation in the WEC in since 2012, while PeCom Racing's LMP2 effort was dissolved. Delta-ADR and Fabien Giroix, formerly of Gulf Racing Middle East, merged their teams under the Millennium Racing name, but the two-car entry missed the first half of the season due to financial problems. Despite that, the team still have the intention to run a single entry in the second half of the season.

LMGTE Pro[edit]

Much remains the same in the LMGTE Pro category, with Porsche, Aston Martin, and AF Corse Ferrari each with two full-season cars. Davide Rigon is promoted within AF Corse following the departures of Giancarlo Fisichella and Kamui Kobayashi, while Frédéric Makowiecki switches allegiances from Aston Martin to Porsche. Fernando Rees, LMGTE Am champion in 2012 with Larbre Compétition, was now promoted to LMGTE Pro alongside Darryl O'Young and Alex MacDowall, with their World Touring Car Championship team Bamboo Engineering, associated with Aston Martin to lead one of the company's entries. British privateers Ram Racing move to the World Endurance Championship after their 2013 European Le Mans Series LMGTE title led by Matt Griffin and Álvaro Parente in the first of the team's Ferraris. However, the team withdrew from the series after Le Mans.

LMGTE Am[edit]

Defending LMGTE Am champions 8 Star return with their Ferrari, picking up Proton Competition's Paolo Ruberti and Gianluca Roda to co-drive with team owner Enzo Potolicchio. They are joined in the Ferrari camp by AF Corse as well as Ram Racing's second Ferrari, which was also withdrawn after Le Mans. Proton Competition upgrade their Porsche to the new 2013-specification 911 RSR. Series newcomers Prospeed Competition bolster Porsche's efforts. Aston Martin also retains their dual amateur entries, with 2013 LMP2 championship runner-up David Heinemeier Hansson moving to the all Danish squad. Krohn Racing has returned to the United States for the United SportsCar Championship, while IMSA Performance has entered the European Le Mans Series. 2012 LMGTE Amateur Endurance Trophy winners Larbre Compétition switched to the European Le Mans Series, competing in LMP2. The team had the intention to take part in the WEC rounds following the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but later backed out of these plans.
