In order to improve the Porsche 919 Hybrid for the new season as much as possible, the Porsche team’s test mileage has reached a staggering 30,000 kilometers. Eventually, in the LMP1 competition, Mark Webber unfortunately suffered a gearbox failure and was forced to retire. Romain Dumas climbed to second place with stable performance and won the runner-up. The two Porsche 911 RSRs in the GTE Pro Class group finished second and seventh respectively.

Le Mans Spirit at Silverstone
The new idea of Silverstone in 2015 (actually nostalgic) is the use of the famous Le Mans-style departure-the car stops at the stands. When the start command is issued, the driver will rush to the car across the track and start at the fastest speed set off.

The history of the Silverstone track dates back to 1947. It is a fast, bumpy track that can truly test the driving skills, and it is also one of the favorite tracks of drivers. ‘Silverstone is original, old-fashioned, full of unique charm, and a timeless classic,’ said Mark Webber, Chopard’s latest brand ambassador.
