    Discuss here all the news about this top class endurance racing series running for the second year since the inaugural season last year.
    [​IMG]Intro

    The FIA World Endurance Championship is an auto racing world championship organised by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) and sanctioned by the FIA. The series usurps the ACO’s former Intercontinental Le Mans Cup which began in 2010, and is the first endurance series of world championship status since the demise of the World Sportscar Championship at the end of 1992.

    The series feature multiple classes of cars competing in endurance races, with sports prototypes competing in the Le Mans Prototype categories, and production-based grand tourers competing in the GT Endurance categories. World champion titles will be awarded to the top scoring manufacturers and drivers over the season,while other cups and trophies will be awarded for drivers and private teams.

    The iconic annual 24 Hours of Le Mans will still be the event of the year for many endurance enthusiasts and is of course featured on the FIA WEC calendar together with other top events.

    Have you seen the 2013 911 GT3 R? That's a beautiful car.

    But this one? Porsche should be ashamed of the design.:thumbsdown:
     
  12. This was probably designed by a company full of drunken imbreds. :cautious:
