Porsche does not unveils aero kit, Silverstone


The new technical regulation WEC pattern the use
manufacturers of class LMP1 can only be use two kit aerodynamic in their
prototypes throughout the season, instead of the three that could be used
until now. This reduction assumes that there is to find the compromise between
the demands of a few circuits and other
, with the 24 Hours of Le Mans as a point
key to the use of an aerodynamic kit of very low load. In this aspect,
Porsche Motorsport has not revealed what the aerodynamic package will be used in
, leaving the question about the line of work followed until now.

In this aspect, Toyota Gazoo Racing will continue a line ‘classical’, every time that Pascal Vasselon has been recognized that the TS050 Hybrid will be fitted the aero kit, high-load in Silverstone, and then test the package of lower downforce in the 6 Hours of Spa test in which traditionally works with a ‘set up’ very similar to that later used in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. However, the German manufacturer has refused to reveal the aerodynamic kit that you will use in the 6 Hours of Silverstone, appointment of the inaugural WEC.

In fact, Porsche handles the option of using the kit in low downforce at Silverstone and so emphasize their preparation for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, to test it, start with a disadvantage -just as in Eng – by the presence of the three Toyota TS050 Hybrid by the two Porsche 919, which will align the brand from Stuttgart. In this aspect, the brand could sacrifice the first appointment, on a path that allows certain licenses, so as to focus its work in the aero kit, low-load. The debut of the aerodynamic package, high-load would be postponed as well to the Nürburgring, appointment very important for the brand to be the appointment of house.
