WEC – Porsche takes the title in Shanghai

Porsche remains unbeatable after the 6 Hours of Shanghai (China) where the Stuttgart brand scored another double. The No. 919 17 Hybrid of Bernhard-Hartley-Webber takes its fourth victory in a row preceding the No. 18 of Dumas-Lieb-Jani who managed to move up to second place. The German manufacturer wins its 13th Manufacturers' endurance title. This is his first world title since 1986.

After struggling against the Porsches during the first hours contested on a wet track, the Audis fell back into line. The #18 R7 e-tron quattro of Tréluyer-Fässler-Lotterer completed the podium ahead of the Toyotas who finished several laps behind.

THEAlpine A450b from Panciatici-Chatin-Dillmann scores its first success of the season in LMP2 ahead of the No. 2 Ligier JS P26 of G-Drive Racing of Rusinov-Canal-Bird. The Oreca 05 KCMG of Howson-Tandy-Bradley took advantage of Ricardo Gonzalez going off the track in the Russian team's second Ligier JS P2 to take third place in the category.

Team Manthey adds a little more happiness to Porsche by winning in GTE Pro with the No. 911 91 RSR of Christensen-Lietz victorious ahead of the Ferrari AF Corse n°51 of Bruni-Vilander and the second Porsche driven by Makowiecki-Pilet. AF Corse consoles itself with the victory in GTE Am of the No. 83 of Perrodo-Collard-Aguas.
