    The FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) Thread

    Creating a new thread for WEC given Mark Webber has moved and probably due for some coverage and update on this fine event.

    It just shows that I know zero about WEC. In the videos uploaded here they refer to Porsche's return in 2014. So how long were they absent from this sport then? Be good to have a third power house contender to the Audis and Pugs.

    The last time they competed and won in the outright category was in 1998 with the 911 GT1-98. They have been around in the lower categories but this is there return to the outright category, also Peugeot pull the plug 2 years ago I think but Toyota are there now. So it will be Audi, Porsche and Toyota next year battling it out and there is talks of Nissan coming in 2015.

    ^^ That is nuts fast! It's a shame it's fairly dull on the engine note, would love to here it really wailing to get a better perspective of speed.

    It sounded more like a jet than a car.
