WEC - Porsche - Confidence ahead of the Le Mans dress rehearsal in Spa

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

The #porsche LMP Team enters in Spa, as well as at the 24-hour classic in Le Mans (June 17/18), two #porsche 919 Hybrids with the same six works drivers. After finishing second and third at the season’s opening round in Silverstone (GB), #porsche heads to the Ardennes mountains leading the manufacturer standings.

In the duel with Toyota at Spa and Le Mans, title defender #porsche is one car less compared to the Silverstone winning squad which enters three prototypes in both races. Regarding the aerodynamics of the #porsche 919 Hybrids, the focus remains on preparing for the season’s highlight in France. The aero package with low downforce, however, provides some advantages in Spa on the long flat-out sections. Also on top of the job list is sheer power because the 7.004 kilometre long Grand Prix circuit offers huge altitude differences.
