The Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) announced Monday the creation of a new prototype category, LMP3, that’s set to launch in 2015.

Aimed to provide teams with a low-cost, turn-key prototype, the new class, which replaces the spec LMPC category, will be seen in the European and Asian Le Mans Series.
