Porsche 919 Hybrid in Japan


Porsche came third and fifth with its two 919 Hybrids in a thrilling six-hour race at the Fuji International Speedway on 16 October 2016, preserving its lead in both the manufacturers’ and drivers’ classifications. Fuji was always going to be a tough contest and it did not disappoint because when the chequered flag fell after 244 laps, all three manufacturers in the LMP1 category were within 18 seconds of each other. In the end it was Toyota’s day, much to the delight of the home crowd. The race at the foot of Mount Fuji was held in constantly dry conditions at ambient temperatures of around 20 degrees Celsius.
