Not only did Porsche 919s lap the Sarthe circuit fastest to claim pole position, but the Stuttgart Stormers are 1-2-3 on the grid.
Porsche is a company which, when it goes racing, does it properly. After a poor initial showing last year - although revealing loads of potential, the hybrid racers look set for a dominant performance this year.
When I spoke with Mark Webber at the launch of the 919 Racer at Geneva last year, he said he was looking forward to his Porsche driving role, because the cars impressed him so much - and also the company personnel behind the team and the concept.
Coming from a skilled driver like Webber, who is not big on BS, that's impressive.
I look forward to the results from the Vingt Quatres Heures du Mans on Sunday afternoon.
Ford has announced that the Ford GT will race again in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016 on the 50th celebration of its dominance in 1966.
I find that each manufacturer will inevitable wax and wane when it comes to their influence and prowess on the racing circuit. It's just a matter of keeping up with the competition and staying in the race until you can come up with another winning advantage.ReplyDelete
