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.
