WEC-H+2: The #18 Porsche loses its lead

The #18 Porsche lost its half-minute lead at the Nürburgring (Germany) following a 5 second stop & go imposed for excessive gasoline consumption. Romain Dumas replaced Marc Lieb in the 919 Hybrid which finds itself in direct competition for first place with the sister car now driven by Brendon Hartley. The New Zealander took control of the event.

If abstraction is common to both orientations of Nelio’s approach, the artist feels the need to create pieces that he describes as intermediaries to explore new nuances between these two movements of contemporary art and invite to follow a path that goes beyond the apparent dichotomies. The artist works in evolutionary and progressive series that he completes over time. A way to muddy the tracks without completely confusing the spectator and to intermingle divergent practices to make coexist, through the creative act, opposite ideas. In the same way, Nelio creates with the concern not to impose a definitive meaning on his works, in order to open them to the projections and interpretations of each. Suggest rather than demonstrate, question rather than explain: art is not a discourse, it is the language of the inexpressible, an aesthetic of lines, forms and colors that depicts our inner worlds and landscapes of our existential paradoxes.Audis stay in touch with Porsches, Toyota is starting to suffer and should soon find itself within one lap of the leaders.

G-Drive Racing took the lead in LMP2 with Roman Rusinov at the wheel of the #2 Ligier JS P26 which is a few seconds ahead of the KCMG Oreca 05 now driven by Matthew Howson. The second Ligier from Gustavo Yacaman's G-Drive completes the top three in the category ahead of the Morgan from Team SARD Morand and theAlpine 450b.

Porsche also retains the lead in GTE Pro with the 911 RSR n°91 of Richard Lietz which is ahead of the Ferrari n°71 by Davide Rigon. The No. 92 led by Patrick Pilet moved up to 3rd position after receiving a drive-through at the start of the race. Aston Martin took the lead in GTE Am with the #98 of Paul Dalla-Lana which has one stop less than the 911 RSR from Abu Dhabi Proton Racing.
