Video: Porsche race-day story at Spa

Round two of the FIA World Endurance Championship WEC concluded with positions three and four the Porsche 919 Hybrids finished third and fourth. At the six-hour race in Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, the trio of Earl Bamber (NZ), Timo Bernhard (DE) and Brendon Hartley (NZ) lost time due to a slow puncture coming home third. The sister car of reigning world champion Neel Jani (CH), Andre Lotterer (DE) and Nick Tandy (GB) started from pole position but was unfortunate with the timing of two “Full Course Yellow" periods that neutralized the race. They finished just behind their teammates.

In the GTE-Pro class the Porsche GT Team finished on place five and six after Saturday’s trouble-free race with swift pit stops. On Belgium’s racetrack in Spa-Francorchamps, Richard Lietz (Austria) and Frederic Makowiecki (France) narrowly pipped their teammates to the post with the new Porsche 911 RSR (#91). Less than a minute later, Kevin Estre (France) and Michael Christensen (Denmark) followed them over the line in the #92 sister car.
