    WEC 6h Fuji

    Brilliant racing yet again at Fuji this week, WEC has provided some great excitement for race fans this year! Smiley

    Great result yet again for Porsche in LMP1, Ferrari took the crown in GTE this time and our Futch again on the podium in a treacherous race.

    Re: WEC 6h Fuji

    100% agreed, but I am a bit worried about the prospects for 2016, given the commotion at VW.


    Re: WEC 6h Fuji

    Unfortunately I was forced to miss it. I remain optimistic for 2016.


    Re: WEC 6h Fuji

    Porsche also won all the possible GT titles at the American Tudor series with the factory 911 RSRs.

    The GT class 911 won the Petit Le Mans 10 hour race overall.

    The race was great, but should have ended after 5,5h.

    The P2 crash was pretty unnecessary and I didn't liked the fact that Audi and this time Porsche as well swapped the positions of their cars, since this didn't affect the manufacturers championship. Somehow I can understand the decisions though but car #18 had deserved the win so much after all the trouble they had in previous races.

    Congrats to Futch for scoring another podium. How bad were the conditions from a driver's point of view. When I remember correctly you were behind the wheel between hour 2 and 3.

    Thanks guys. Tough race. We were unlucky with the two full course yellow but that's racing. I drove in hours 3 and 4. We decided to double stint. I was in wet intermediates, so quite difficult at the beginning and losing quite a bit of performance in the end with a drying track and worn tyres. 

    Fuji is awesome, I love this track but treacherous in wet conditions, very low grip and when the S3 is dry, it's still raining and wet from S1 to the middle of S2.

    The crash in P2 was very unfortunate and indeed unnecessary, not sure what happened there. 

    Gutted for Romain who drives in car 18. Sucks from Porsche but I can understand their stance. They were doing so much better than car 17...

     


    Re: WEC 6h Fuji

    What was Porsches stance or what inspired their decision? Car 18 in general seems to be the better driven car of the two.

    Because audi n8 let the n7 go forward to minimise the point gap. So, porsche had no other way here. Right move there, nothing wrong. They have a great competitive car and want to win both manufacturer and pilot comp.
