final. With this step, confirms the victory of the Porsche 919 Hybrid #2
Dumas, Jani and Lieb

, a part of the flat bottom, Audi has taken the decision to withdraw this
claim to understand that its LMP1 had been subjected to movements
vertical not provided
during the 6 Hours of Silverstone, in what can be
understand it as a movement of rebound excessive and unwanted. For this reason, signature

the exclusion of the classification by the interest and common good of this sport,
looking together towards the front. it Is our job to prevent a greater
