John Dagys wrote:FIA WEC - Silverstone Six Hours Post-Race Notebook

***Toyota’s double disqualification from Sunday’s Six Hours of Silverstone was not the first exclusion for a LMP1 car due to a skid-block infringement at the UK circuit, as the No. 7 Audi R18 of Andre Lotterer, Benoit Treluyer and Marcel Fassler lost their win in 2016 due to a similar technical issue.

***The track, however, has since been resurfaced and new curbing added, which Toyota claims contributed to both TS050 Hybrids failing post-race skid deflection tests. It’s unclear if the Japanese manufacturer will appeal the ruling.

***The No. 3 Rebellion R13 Gibson, which inherits the win, becomes the first privateer entry to win a FIA World Endurance Championship race overall and the first non-hybrid to claim outright victory since Spa 2012, when Audi’s R18 TDI of Romain Dumas, Loic Duval and Marc Gene took top honors.

***Audi had started the inaugural WEC season with hybrid and non-hybrid versions of its R18, before switching exclusively to the e-tron quattro post-Le Mans.

***Thomas Laurent, 20, becomes the youngest-ever overall winner in the WEC, while co-driver Gustavo Menezes is the first American to win a world championship round outright in its current iteration.

***Menezes, Laurent and Mathias Beche, who finished third overall at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, move into second in the World Drivers’ Championship, just two points behind Toyota’s Fernando Alonso, Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastien Buemi.

***With the 1-2 finish on Sunday, Rebellion, meanwhile, is now just 3 points away from Toyota Gazoo Racing in the Teams’ World Championship.

***The ByKolles Racing ENSO CLM P1/01 NISMO experienced gear shift issues before Rene Binder spun the car out of Sunday’s race. It spent 25 minutes in its garage spread across two visits before returning to the track having lost multiple laps, while Binder’s rotation under full course yellow conditions resulted in the car’s retirement.

***Local hero Jenson Button didn’t get to drive on Sunday as Mikhail Aleshin was forced to retire the No. 11 SMP Racing BR Engineering BR1 AER in the opening hour after smoke came billowing out of the LMP1 non-hybrid contender, which showed improved form to the Rebellions all weekend.

***Nicolas Lapierre scored podiums in both LMP2 races this weekend. The reigning Le Mans class champion finished second for DragonSpeed in Saturday’s four-hour European Le Mans Series round, before taking third in Sunday’s WEC race with Signatech Alpine co-drivers Pierre Thiriet and Andre Negrao.

***Ho-Pin Tung, Stephane Richelmi and Gabriel Aubry have closed the gap in the LMP2 title race to four points the Signatech Alpine trio following a 1-2 class finish for Jackie Chan DC Racing.

***Richelmi said the second Full Course Yellow helped reel in its sister car for the win. “The safety car was at the worst time,” he said. “I had to box for refuelling but we could only refuel for five seconds, so we had to refuel again. Fortunately, we had more luck with a full course yellow just after. It was perfect timing to make a driver change and we took some time out of the No. 37.”

***LMP2 spec engine supplier Gibson reached a milestone over the weekend, having completed 1 million kilometers of track use since the 4.2-liter V8 powerplant’s debut in September 2016.

***GTE-Pro class winner James Calado said he and Alessandro Pier Guidi relied on strategy rather than pace to claim their first victory of the season. “We just didn’t quite have the pace to compete with the Porsche and the Ford, even the Aston now is up there,” said Calado. “Saving fuel and hoping for a full course yellow was our only hope. People would say we were lucky but we did it on purpose.”

***Calado added that the No. 51 AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE’s run didn’t go without its hitches, either. ‘It wasn’t so straightforward – Alessandro lost 10 seconds due to a fuel issue,” he explained. “So we lost time there, but the team did an amazing strategic job. The car was at its full potential and we were pushing like crazy to keep the Porsches behind us.”

***McLaren junior Nyck de Vries said he found negotiating traffic “peaceful” on his sports car debut. The 23-year-old finished eighth overall with Racing Team Nederland LMP2 co-drivers Giedo van der Garde and Frits van Eerd. “Doing the driver changes quickly and traffic took some time to get comfortable with”, he told Sportscar365. “It was different but quite peaceful because in sprint racing you’re directly battling your opponents all the time.”

***After the race, the WEC teams started packing containers ready for the overseas rounds at Fuji, Shanghai and Sebring. Containers were stored on the Stowe Circuit inside the main Silverstone track ahead of being sea-freighted to Japan for round four in October.

***Former Head of Audi Motorsport and current ACO advisor Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich served as the race’s honorary starter, having waved the cars off the grid. David Richards, in his capacity as chairman of the Motor Sports Association (MSA), meanwhile, presented trophies on the podium.

***The reported weekend attendance was 60,240 people, marking a significant increase from last year’s event, held in April, which was at 50,200.

***Roman Rusinov, who claimed his third consecutive European Le Mans Series victory of the season on Saturday, told Sportscar365 that he could return to WEC competition in the 1000 Miles of Sebring in March.

***Sunday’s race was the first WEC event Rusinov missed this season, after claiming LMP2 class victory as a wildcard entry at Spa. Rusinov, Andrea Pizzitola and Jean-Eric Vergne also took top honors at Le Mans but were later excluded for a refueling violation.

Rebellion win confirmed as Toyota renounces appeal of WEC 6 Hours of Silverstone decision

Toyota has decided not to appeal the decision to disqualify both TS050 Hybrids from the WEC 6 hours of Silverstone. Victory for Rebellion Racing is therefore confirmed, meaning the first win for a non-hybrid LMP1 this year.

Toyota’s decision not to appeal the exclusion of the TS050 Hybrids confirms the winners of the third round of the World Endurance Championship, the 6 Hours of Silverstone, as Mathias Beche, Thomas Laurent and Gustavo Menezes with the #3 Rebellion R13 Gibson. Neel Jani and André Lotterer are runners-up in the #1 sister car. In third place, the #17 SMP Racing BR Engineering BR1-AER of Stéphane Sarrazin and Egor Orudzhev.

A crowd of over 60,000 fans watched the race on Sunday. The next round in the championship is the 6 Hours of Fuji, on 14 October 2018.

Full results of the 2018 6 Hours of Silverstone.

Session was red flagged for much of the session due to debris and damaged kerbing. The half hour lost has been formally added to the next practice.

SMP's bad day continues with the #17 car after its wheel loss earlier, has now stopped on track with I believe a lack of battery charge. Meanwhile the sister #11 car driven by Button was recently in the garage having a broken alternator belt replaced. It had dropped JB out of the top 10, but he is now back up to 6th, soon to challenge the ByKolles car for 5th.. At the front is still a Toyota 1-2 with Conway now some 20 plus seconds ahead of the #8 Alonso car. Best of the rest is a Rebellion of Lotterer some 4 laps down in 3rd. About an hour 20 to go

6 hours of Shanghai on today. Pissing down with rain and interrupted by FCY's, SC's and red flags mainly to do with weather, helicopters grounded and marshalls unable to see the next post.

Currently it is green flag though. FWIW Toyota are 1 & 2 (Alonso ahead in the #8) with Button 3rd in the SMP car, a lap down.... Senna in the Rebellion 4th and ByKolles 5th. Jackie Chan racing leading the LMP2's. Nicki Thiim leading GTE Pro in the Aston Martin.

Live timing: https://www.fiawec.com/en/live

Live also on Eurosport TV. Watching it whilst Macau does its special events things.

Under SC just noticed Button is back on the same lap as the Toyotas, but that maybe pit stop related if the leaders pitted under the SC currently on track.

Surprise surprise Toyota took a 1-2. Only thing is it was the #7 of Mike Conway, Jose Maria Lopez and Kamui Kobayashi ahead of the #8 of Fernando Alonso, Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastien Buemi.. The SMP #11 Button Mikhail Aleshin and Vitaly Petrov, car came 3rd giving Jenson his first WEC podium.

The #8 car had been ahead during the early stages, but the #7 managed to jump ahead because it made its second stop on a lap that the field was being led through the pitlane anyway. The #8 then lost further time being held up by a red light at the end of the pits when Alonso took over from Buemi, handing the #7 car an advantage of some 20 seconds.

LMP2 honours went to Jackie Chan DC Racing, and Aston took the GTE Pro class with its new Vantage GTE, which also finished seventh overall

Success Ballast Introduced to GTE-Am for 2019-20

The FIA World Endurance Championship will introduce success ballast to the GTE-Am category next season.


All 2019-20 rounds except the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be subject to the new arrangement, which was confirmed in the latest FIA World Motor Sport Council bulletin on Wednesday.

It follows the introduction of success ballast to the GTE class of the European Le Mans Series for next year.

WEC success ballast appears to follow a similar principle to the ELMS system, with additional weight calculated by a mixture of previous race results and championship positions.

The World Motor Sport Council’s December update also confirmed that tire changes will no longer be allowed to take place at the same time as refueling, reversing a rule put in place for the 2018-19 ‘Super Season’.

Another change regards the 2019-20 points system, which will be updated to reflect the switch to a schedule of varying race lengths.

Four-hour WEC races will be held at Silverstone and Shanghai for the first time next season, along with a new eight-hour race in Bahrain.

Woot.... it has been a long time between drinks. I guess the last would have been the Adelaide Race of a Thousand Years on 2001 New Years Eve (31 Dec 2000). That was held on the full GP Adelaide City track.
