Is that what the article explicitly says?

The race will be entirely on FS3 so I could watch it.

Sad error from Lopez to lose pole position.

SMP and Rebellion looks very close each other and It could be a good battle there, the same between ByKolles and DragonSpeed.

runs a 1-month trial. Does not require a credit card, just email confirmation.

Geoblocked in US (you might be able to take the trial in US too, but the race feed won't be visible and will be geoblocked, I confirmed that by logging in with a VPN).

The stream uses the WEC feed, same comms and continuous feed.

Should be able to watch on youtube. Just type in Fuji and select live. About 45 minutes from now until the start.

The article says that Lopez was 8.7 km/h over the limit. He was the first man in the car. So the offense was either at the start of quali or on his in-lap to hand over to Kobayashi. The limiter would be engaged from a standstill so it is unlikely to have been at the start of quali. And since Kobayashi didn't have any problems either leaving or entering the pits, that surely makes it most likely that Lopez was at fault when he entered the pits to switch drivers.

Menezes bins the #3 Rebellion behind the safety car... Button leads in the #11 SMP. And #17 SMP lost a wheel and 7 laps.

So the ******s won again. It was a close race - just a 4 lap lead at the end.

It was shown live in its entirety on TV via Eurosports in Australia! As is every other WEC race.

You can always sign up to the online system and pay for a system that doesn't work. That's always a fun way of doing it.

Anyway - not a great race. Turns out adding a tiny bit of weight didn't make a difference - shock and horror. Clashing with Petit is stupid for many reasons, but the biggest takeaway is that Petit is consistently awesome, whilst Fuji is consistently a bit meh. So WEC comes out looking terrible every time.

Onto Shanghai. Let's added a couple of grams to the Toyotas this time and pretend it'll negate the entire hybrid advantage.

That's a bit mean to Fuji, the 2016 WEC race was one of the greatest races I've ever watched. I didn't get to watch this edition but did see some highlights that looked good.

Also IMSA's BoP-fests dominated by random safety cars are the definition of 'meh' to me.

Have to agree on the 2016 race. It was awesome. I didn't follow this edition properly either, but GTE did have some moments, even in the AM category.
I don't know what happened to the Aston Martins, as they've again been nowhere after qualifying on pole. One of the BMWs did have pace, the other I don't know. #92 Porsche extends their comfortable margin in the championship points table by finishing 1st.

WOW, some interest in the series here, with barely two pages in the race thread....

Anyone know why the official WEC site is saying this is the first Porsche GTE PRO victory with the "current model"? I though they won 1-2 at Le Mans with that car.

Probably referring to normal WEC Races.

Proton didn't have a very good race including post race penalties and being investigated for refuelling time irregularities with the car data loggers.
