German term or phrase: ohne Vorlaufzeit
Who is the Formula One expert?

An jedem Rennsonntag sind in beiden Autos entweder neue oder ueberholte Motoren ohne Vorlaufzeit.

Also: Aus dem Warm-up und dem Rennen mit Einführungs- und Auslaufrunden ergeben sich rund 400 Kilometer . Warm-up I know, practice sessions I know but Einführungs- und Auslaufrunden??

Thank you

Explanation:
Vorlauf in this context could very well mean, that the engines have not been run in the car beforehand only bench-tested. Also Einführungs- und Auslaufrunde probably refers to either qualifying (in which the first and last laps are not timed) or – more likely – the lap before the race proper starts, and the 'victory' lap after the race which ere commonly referred to as Pre-Race and Post-Race Laps by Murry Walker, bless him.
Hope this helps a little.

Thanks. The client confirmed what you said.

Ohne Vorlaufzeit means that the engines haven't been driven/driven in before. And the other laps are called parade and delceleration laps.

Your explanation really helped me. Thank you.

Explanation:
I can only help with Vorlaufzeit.
The Wyhlidal Automotive dictionary says that "Vorlaufzeit" is "lead time" (abbreviated "LT"). This is clearly an automotive context but I don't know the meaning.
