2019 FIA WEC 4 hours of Silverstone (Race)

No thread was open, so I decided to do one.

Timetable-

FP1- August 30th (12h00)- Finished; results (PDF)
FP2- August 30th (17h00)- Finished; results (PDF)
FP3- August 31st (09h00)-
QF1- August 31st (11h50)-
QF2- August 31st (12h20)-
RACE- September 1st (12h00)-

New stuff-

Race is only 4hrs.
Rebellion has an interim livery which is split black/white and white/black on their two cars.
Ginetta finally has 2 entries in lmp1.
The track is much faster this year thanks to a resurfacing.
Only 3 manufacturer's left in GTE PRO and AM with BMW and Ford leaving.

You could chalk it up to the resurface of the track but there's definitely big improvement from Rebellion from a little over a year ago.

lol Toyota Press Release

Defending champions TOYOTA GAZOO Racing got the new 2019-2020 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) season underway with the first practice sessions for the 4 Hours of Silverstone today.

The fastest non-hybrid, the #1 Rebellion, was 1.029secs away from Kamui’s lap as all competitors adjusted to a revised Equivalence of Technology, which sees the TS050 HYBRID now carrying at least 99kg of additional weight compared to its competitors, who also benefit from at least 50% more fuel per lap.

I'll hold off on who's fastest yet. Looking at the timing results, Toyota's did their best on 1-lap flyers, Rebellion's did their best at the end of an 7 and 6 lap stint for the #1 and #3 respectively. Who knows, but I expect it to be closer than what FP2 showed on ultimate times. The long runs look pretty even with times between 1:38's-1:42's for both teams. Ginetta is about a second off the pace.

Times dropped a lot between the first and second practices. THe Ginetta even found a second. Was expected the to be a bit closer in pace, but I guess the car is still new to the team and the majority of the drivers.

First time post on here!!

Had to visit Silverstone to see the last hurrah for these cars in the UK, the speed through the Becketts complex was staggering, to me the Rebellion looked super quick through there, Toyota as too but probly carrying 20mph more speed so needed a lift! Ginetta did few laps, in and out a lot it seemed.

Track looked great, and awesome they opened a bit of the Wing up to allow fans over the pit area, a really good idea.

Only poor show was despite a thousand folk there, the WEC "fan" show thing was all closed, that was rather poor in my view.

Allow me to introduce myself.

I'll be honest - I like the new graphics. A bit much at times (the elements generally could be reduced in size by ~15% to no real detriment) but the arrangement is fine.

Edit - Okay, the progress bar for the session needs to go - I can tell the time. But that's the only rankle I have so far.

I also like the new interface. The progress to the next sector is good if you don't know where the sectors are. That's a nice step up. Very modern.

Whoever did those needs to go redo the website and app.

Speaking of which, I hope that Chrome addon still gives us good Live Timing.

Good qualifying session all around. I of course focus mostly on lmp1 and the gaps look good to me. I know that the Toyotas swept the front row but the Rebellion's are right with them. In fact they're only a tenth off but they didn't hook up all the best sectors in qualifying. If they did, they would be at a 1:36.0 which is equal to the #8 Toyota and only .1 behind the pole #7. Sector 2 they are incredibly fast. I think we're on for a good race up front.

Qualifying was good and I think the opening 5 laps will be REALLY close. I expect the gaps will increase when traffic and pit stops come around.

Unfortunately not WEC. Official live timing is pretty poor.
