Champion portrait: Patrick Pilet
  "Porsche is my second family"
For the greatest day of his career, Patrick Pilet might have hoped for better weather. At Petit Le Mans in the USA, the skies opened up and it poured. Despite umbrellas and plastic rain capes, the fans around the track were soaked to the skin. But perhaps this was precisely the extreme conditions that the Frenchman needed to clinch the most important success in his career until now, just five days before his 34th birthday on 8 October: the first overall victory for Porsche at the most important North American long distance race alongside Daytona and Sebring.
GT cars beat Daytona Prototypes In Petit Le Mans
  Major embarrassment for lame DPs
GTLM class Porsche 911, number 911, driven by 24 Hours of Le Mans overall winner Nick Tandy, co-driving with Patrick Pilet, won the Petit LeMans at Road Atlanta. When the race was stopped due to visibility issues as darkness approached, Tandy was in the lead, just ahead of the No. 24 BMW Team RLL Z4 GTE driven by John Edwards, Lucas Luhr and Jens Klingmann. 
Westbrook Earns Petit LeMans Pole In Wet
  by Steven Cole Smith
As you look at the Friday qualifying times for the Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda 10-hour endurance race on Saturday, don't expect to be immediately impressed by the speeds. Rain, shifting back and forth between "light" and "drizzle" never stopped long enough to establish any sort of dry line. But looking at the water running across the Road Atlanta track in some places, and standing water in others, it's impressive that the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship drivers managed to log the times they did.
All New Ford GT Race Car To Make European Debut
  At Silverstone Ahead Of Historic Return To Le Mans
Ford's all-new GT race car - revealed at Le Mans in June - will make its European racing debut at the Silverstone Circuit in the U.K. next April. Two cars will line up on the grid for the opening round of the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) where they will compete in the GT-Endurance Pro Class for the Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy.
Bernhard, Hartley and Webber win in Austin
  Porsche buries competition
The Porsche 919 Hybrid keeps leaving its mark on the world’s race tracks. After one-two results at the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Nürburgring, the ground breaking hybrid race car also won in Austin (USA) on Saturday. The German brand also secured the class victory with the production-based GT sports car, the Porsche 911 RSR. The fifth round of this year’s FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in the Texan capital was held in temperatures as high as 35° Celsius. The WEC is considered one of the the most important World Championships besides Formula One.
Redemption for Ford and Ganassi Racing Team
  by Steven Cole Smith
For the Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates Ford EcoBoost Riley team, it must have felt a little like 2011. That was the year that the No. 01 absolutely dominated the Prototype field, with nine wins in 12 races. And that was the team that showed up Saturday at the Lone Star Le Mans at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Winless for the year, drivers Scott Pruett and Joey Hand drove a technically accomplished race, winning by a whopping 16.9 seconds over the second-place No. 10 Konica Minolta Corvette DP of Wayne Taylor Racing, driven by brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor.
WEC: 1-2 in qualifying for the Porsche 919 Hybrid
  Fifth grid front row lock out
The Porsche 919 Hybrid continued to prove its outstanding qualifying performance when taking the fifth pole position in the fifth round of the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship. It is also the fifth consecutive front row grid lock out for the innovative Le Mans Prototypes from Stuttgart. The number 18 car of drivers Romain Dumas (FR), Neel Jani (CH) and Marc Lieb (DE) is going to start from pole position for the third time this year.
Pruett Takes Pole in Austin
  TUDOR United SportsCar Championship qualifying
Scott Pruett set the pace in the No. 01 Chip Ganassi Racing Riley-Ford at the 3.427-mile Circuit of the Americas, securing the pole position for Saturday’s Lone Star Le Mans. Pruett and co-driver Joey Hand had both set unofficial track records in the last two practice sessions, with Pruett’s Friday morning time of 1:57.366 standing as the best time of the day.
IMSA TUDOR Championship Battles Up for Grabs
  by Steven Cole Smith
With racing starting in January and ending in October, the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship is, start to finish, one of the longest seasons in motorsports. With only two races remaining, you'd think a couple of teams would have, by now, stretched out a comfortable lead in the championship points battle. And you'd be wrong. All four TUDOR Championship classes are up for grabs, especially in the Prototype class, where a scant two points separate the top three contenders.
Porsche 1-2 at Nurburgring
  Mark Webber, Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley win
Porsche Team took a memorable 1-2 finish on home soil at the Nurburgring today as the No.17 Porsche 919 Hybrid car claimed a maiden win for Mark Webber, Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley. It was the second consecutive WEC win for Porsche after its Le Mans triumph in June.
Mario Andretti's F5000 Lola wins again
  At Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
It was significant that Zak Brown's Lola T332, in the hands of Richard Dean, won Sunday's Formula 5000 race at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion: when the last professional Formula 5000 race was held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca 40 years ago (October 12, 1975), it was won by Mario Andretti in the same car. Snapshots into the past are at the heart of vintage automobile racing, and the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion managed to reel off plenty of those over four competition days - two devoted to practice sessions followed by the August 15-16 weekend of Rolex races - for 15 groups of cars representing nearly a century of motorsports history.
