I'm in agreement - it was totally pointless. Which, for me, is the point.

I'd be interested to see how close you could get to the Nord record in a WEC spec car.
I've kept out of this since giving my opinion when it all started. Suffice to say, I completely agree.

I think the tire issue is because of the increased loads of the car. A normal lmp1 tire might be able to handle it but maybe not safely. I don't know if it's anymore of a special compound than that. I still like this idea though.

It was a PR/marketing exercise and if it increases Porsche sales, then it's done its job. As for motorsport itself, it achieved very little.

There is nothing of interest here https://www.autosport.com/wec/news/1...n-public-roads

Fake Porsche LMP1 drives on roads.

More interesting than the illegal 919 driving the roads was that real 919 also followed it

Second in line though

If those cars came down the street in my city I'd be lined up to watch. I might even pay a few bucks to see it. Why the hate?

Me too - in my street or somewhere near, but thrashing it around a circuit unchallenged in a non-racing spec? No, it does nothing for me.

I'm so jealous of him being able to drive it yet not know what it's capable of...A lot of miss information in his comment...
Aragon circuit is not best suited for the car but it is hard to crash there...
