The IMSA series came once again to WeatherTech Laguna Seca Raceway in California for the penultimate round in the 2018 WeatherTech Championship. The weather was typical California coastal September weather, cool with fog and cloud in the early morning, burning off later to reveal bright sunshine by mid-day. The good news for Porsche fans is that the race, run over 2 hours 40 minutes, saw Porsche on the podium at Laguna Seca!
All three championship classes, Prototype, GTLM (European ACO GTE Pro), and GTD (FIA GT3) were all still wide open with two races to go in the championship. From a Porsche perspective, though, it was not looking too good in either GT category.
