    Porsche 919 beats Spa record

    That's right faster than a F1 from Hamilton last year pole! This tells a lot about the tech going in endurance cars that can do 'this' for 24h...hats off Smiley

    Almost 1 second faster than the F1 record and 12 seconds faster than the WEC pole time from last year. 

    1,160hp from the EVO engine. 39kg lighter. top speed on the lap was 359km/h and it averaged 246km/h

    F@ck me that's fast!

    Re: Porsche 919 beats Spa record

    That's why Porsche/Audi never went to F1. Why go to F1 when you can bring F1 to you? ;)


    Re: Porsche 919 beats Spa record

    wowwww, engineering at its best


    Re: Porsche 919 beats Spa record

    epic ! For anybody who has been in Spa almost unimaginable to average 246.....

    I wonder if they will try to beat their own long-standing Nurburgring lap record... Smiley

    It would be great marketing for Porsche Motorsport! Smiley

    Are they not referring to the GP track instead of Nordschleife?

    Would be brilliant if they did it though...

    Well they have been neutering F1 cars for a couple of decades so that is not that surprising...

    This. F1 cars can go way quicker but if they allowed for that kind of design, it would make an already boring sport even more boring by making this like passing even harder.


    Re: Porsche 919 beats Spa record

    Noone1. This 919 evo can also go faster. Everything depends on what kind of limit you choose. But talking from concept side, sportprototypes are faster than open wheelers. Every unlimited f1 will be sportprototype)))

    Here we have a nice engineering and marketing exercise. No weird things like vent in the ass)) but real 919 with some "minor" updates)))

    Correct.  Formula One cars aren’t low drag vehicles when compared with the 919 EVO and similar cars of the same racing class because of the exposed wheels.   This is a tremendous source of drag even with the elaborate bits of aerodynamics and fluid flow control to minimize the impact.   Closed wheeled cars are that much more efficient, aerodynamically.

    Re: Porsche 919 beats Spa record

    I did not go to much into details as the Bellof laptime is based upon a full racelap (1983 configuration) whereas most other are BTG. But looking at fast lap times, the Radical SR8 LM have done a 2:16 at SPA where the 919 did 1:41. That is 35 seconds slower.

    The SR8 did 6:48 at NS BTG which in my view indicates that the 919 will destroy the Bellof time.

     

     


    Re: Porsche 919 beats Spa record

    It will be well into the 5 minute range.

    For a bit of historic comparison, here's a video clip of the Porsche 956 racing at Spa...

    "First stop: Spa"

    "Next stop: ?"

    Nurburgring GP / Nordscheleife?


    Re: Porsche 919 beats Spa record

    Car looks insane, but man, Porsche has the worst voice overs ever. They really need to get a new voice actor and writer.


    Re: Porsche 919 beats Spa record

    Has been the same voice for years
