FIA WEC Prologue: Paul Ricard, Friday Evening Session Notes

Just 17 cars ventured out into the darkness at Paul Ricard for the final 2 hour session of the day run from 7pm.

Most were allowing new drivers, and new machinery, to be adjusted to the challenges of low (or indeed no) light.

It was again a drama free session with Mark Webber posting an impressive 1:41.289 in the darkness to top the times.

One point raised by a well placed paddock source was an explanation for the absence of the second factory GT Porsche, the evidence pointing to an incident substantial enough to count the car out of the weekend’s proceedings.

The #26 Morgan and #88 Proton Porsche were pinged at the end of the session for passing the checkered flag twice.
