Cheap Copy Watches — The FIA WEC championship continued this weekend with a very strong race for Porsche at the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps.
After clocking up a success at the opening race of the season in Silverstone, the Porsche teams competed at Spa-Francorchamps on May 7th 2016 with strong expectations of victory. All teams took this race as their last preparation round before Le Mans. Following the season’s opening race at Silverstone, the fastest lap of the race, achieved by Brendon Hartley, gave an idea of what would have been possible for the Porsche 919 in Spa. The team of Chopard ambassador, Romain Dumas, finished second with the Porsche 919 Hybrid and extended its lead in the drivers’ championship. The Porsche 919 Hybrid led by Mark Webber and Brendon Hartley reached the fifth position in the LMP1 race. Track temperatures of up to 50 degrees celsius gave much warmer conditions than expected for the race in the Ardennes mountains.
The Spa-Francorchamps track is acknowledged as one of the finest in the world. Named the “Toboggan of the Ardennes” (Ardennes slopes), this extremely fast circuit is highly technical and greatly appreciated by drivers. It features certain difficulties that have become legendary, such as the famous steep fast right-hand corner known as the Raidillon, the high-speed winding turns and the very slow loop called La Source. With its straight lines and rapid curves, this track offers sensations unknown to other tracks, for both drivers and spectators. The present track is 7,395 km long. At Spa Francorchamps, experience makes the difference.
Jacky Ickx, longstanding Chopard ambassador, is one of the only two drivers to have won on both the old 14.1km and the new 7km circuits at Spa-Francorchamps.
