Ignoring aero effects?
(a) I don't know the answer but...
(b) why would you ignore the aero effects?
Because there are conditions (say uphill) where you aren't going fast enough for aero to be an advantage?
And also up steep hills you'll probably run in to extra issues of weight, especially if you've gone to all the trouble of adding a fairing.
For a long trip I think it's worth remembering that despite all the excited talk of a new LEJoG record recently on a Luddites-of-Lausanne-approved bike, the pedal-power record is still held by a faired recumbent trike. I've not done a LEJoG but I understand some hills are dotted along the route.
