WEC Silverstone 2013

Here we go again for another season of the World Endurance Championship. The first race was held on April 14 on the Silverstone circuit.

This year the LMP1 entry list is particularly reduced with the absence (hopefully temporary) of the Pescarolo team. Awaiting the comee back of Porsche in this category in 2014, there are only the two manufacturers who were already fighting for the title in 2012 and two private teams. Despite a first line fully occupied by Toyota at the end of a qualifying session disrupted by rain and a new system for calculating the reference time as the average of the two best laps per driver, the Audi team finally won the race with its two cars (#2 and #1), followed by the two Toyota cars (#8 and #7) at one lap, and by the two Rebellion Racing at three laps behind the winner (#12 and #13). The HPD of the Strakka Racing team did not finish, due to a collision.

In LMP2, the first place was for to the Oreca #25 of the Delta-ADR team, followed by the Morgan of the OAK Racing team and the car of the Pecom Racing.

In GTE Pro, Aston Martin puts its cars in the first and third positions (#97 and #99), the second one occupied by the Ferrari 458 # 71 of the AF Corse team.

In GTE Am, Aston Martin is still the winner with the #95 car, then comes the Larbre Competition Corvette and the Ferrari 478 of the 8 Star Motorsports wearing a beautiful bright orange livery.
