Porsche-winner-2015-WEC

 

By taking the fifth victory in a row Porsche has made itself a World Champion in Shanghai. One race before the season’s finale no one can take away the Manufacturers’ title in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) from the young team from Weissach.

 

In China the winning drivers were Timo Bernhard, Brendon Hartley and Mark Webber in a Six-Hour race of which two thirds were held on a wet track. The sister car of Romain Dumas, Neel Jani and Marc Lieb finished second, and hence delivered the season’s fourth one-two victory for the Porsche team.

 

Porsche has won the title with 308 points ahead of Audi (238) and Toyota (137). For Porsche it is the 13th Manufacturers’ World Championship title in endurance racing, and the first since 1986. Between 1964 and 1986, Porsche took twelve Manufacturers’ titles in the then Sports Car World Championship.

 

The Drivers’ World Championship title will be decided at the season’s finale in Bahrain on November 21. Porsche drivers Bernhard, Hartley and Webber are leading with 155 points ahead of three Audi drivers who have scored 143 points.
