Petrol-powered cars have been handed a performance boost ahead of next year's 24 Hours of Le Mans in an effort to equalise performance with the diesel entrants.

The race organiser, the Automobile Club de l'Ouest, has made the changes after analysing the race results from the 100km of Spa earlier this month.
