Toyota/Michelin claim 1-2 finish at Spa

Toyota Gazoo Racing monopolised the top two places at the end of the hot and sunny 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, opening round of the 2018/2019 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). First over the line was the N°8 Toyota TS050 Hybrid of Buemi/Nakajima/Alonso, chased by the N°7 prototype of Conway/Kobayashi/Lopez. Third was the N°1 Rebellion/Michelin, while the LM GTE Pro victor was the N°66 Ford/Michelin of Mücke/Pla/Johnson.

One-two glory for Toyota/Michelin in Fuji downpour

In a repeat scenario of 2013, this year’s 6 Hours of Fuji – round seven of the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship – was marked by torrential rain. The appalling weather didn’t prevent the N°8 and N°7 Michelin-equipped TS050 Hybrids from monopolising the top two positions, however, while the N°51 Ferrari/Michelin came up trumps in LM GTE Pro.

The gales that swept over Japan this weekend played havoc with two major motorsport fixtures, namely the country’s motorcycle racing grand prix and the FIA WEC clash at Fuji. Rain upset both practice and the races themselves, putting Michelin’s wet-weather tyre ranges for both championships very much in the spotlight.

The WEC’s 6 Hours of Fuji started behind the safety car but red flags Were shown just half-an-hour in because of fog. There were then a number of yellow flag and ‘slow zone’ periods before action was finally curtailed prematurely, again due to poor visibility. Seventy-five percent of the distance had been completed, though, so full championship points were awarded.

Porsche and Toyota traded the lead but the win ended up in the hands of the N°8 Toyota TS050 Hybrid/Michelin (Buemi/Davidson/Nakajima) which was followed over the line by its N°7 sister car (Conway/Kobayashi/Lopez), despite an early tangle with the N°1 Porsche 919 Hybrid/Michelin (Jani/Lotterer/Tandy, 3rd).

Toyota Gazoo Racing’s fifth victory on home soil has promoted it to within 60 points of Porsche in the provisional Manufacturers’ standings with two rounds to come. The pole-winning N°2 Porsche/Michelin of Bernhard/Bamber/Hartley ended up a lap short of the day’s victors.

The LM GTE Pro fight saw the N°51 Ferrari 488 GTE/Michelin (Calado/Pier Guidi) finish 0.968s and 3.449s clear of the N°91 (Lietz/Makowiecki) and N°92 (Christensen/Estre) Porsche 911 RSRs respectively. The N°66 Ford GT and N°71 Ferrari made it an all-Michelin top five.

There was one-two success for Ferrari/Michelin in LM GTE Am thanks to Spirit of Race’s N°54 Ferrari (Flohr/Castellacci/Molina) and the N°61 Clearwater Racing car (Mok/Sawa/Griffin), while the LMP2 honours went to the N°31 Vaillante Rebellion (Canal/Prost/Senna), ahead of the N°36 Alpine and N°38 Oreca.

Teams will travel next to Shanghai, China, for the season’s penultimate showdown on November 5.
