FIA WEC: COTA, Hour 5 Summary


With just an hour to go, it looks like Porsche has control of both the LMP1 and the GT classes. As the hour ends, it is the 18 with Dumas at the wheel leading by about a minute over the sister car with Hartley driving. The Audi challenge just doesn’t look like it is there, with the 8 and the 7 a lap back.


The issue for the Rebellions have been plug changes. In the 5th hour, the 12 was in the garage for a change, dropping them way off the pace and multiple stops means that the 12 has dropped all the way back to 28th overall and in the garage again.


GT now sees the 91 Porsche now leading and has kept about a 2 second lead over the 92 for most of the session. One change in the class is that the 51 Ferrari dropped to last in the Pro class.

Just as the hour changed, Patrick Dempsey took over the GTE AM class lead, but should be pitting again soon.


In LMP2, G-Force Ligier 26 continues to lead by about 40 seconds over the KCMG Oreca.
