Barcelona Prologue: Monday Paddock Notes

All 30 cars present, Toyota's new cars present, Team LNT preparing G60s, Porsche livery changes

All 30 cars are on site for the FIA WEC Prologue test at Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.

In addition to the cars seen yesterday by DSC, we’ve now seen the remaining machinery that will run this week.

Still under wraps is the Racing Team Nederland ORECA 07, which will be run by TDS Racing this season.

The work is almost complete on the livery for the #33 High Class Racing ORECA meanwhile.

Both Rebellions are in the all-carbon finish here.

The Ginettas are coming together nicely, the #5 car with its livery applied. It’s near all carbon with Ginetta and Team LNT highlights, the same design the Yorkshire-based constructor used for the launch of its 2020 LMP3 car.

The livery differentiation is clear today with the GTE Pro Porsches, the reversed grey and white elements on the doors and front bodywork highlighted below.

The new-look Toyotas were going through scrutineering this morning.

A revised livery (with more areas of red and black on the front of the cars) and detailed aero changes evidence that development has far from halted in the final season of the TS050 programme.

The final GTE Am car to be seen by DSC was in the garage this morning, the final livery touches going on the #83 AF Corse car for Francois Perrodo, Manu Collard and Nicklas Nielsen.

TF Sport’s new Aston Martin Vantage GTE was also out in the sunshine this morning too, the #90 car sure to be a fan favourite this year with its stunning red and black livery.

There will be plenty more news and notes to come on DSC later today.
