Le Mans package at Spa
In what is seen as the dress rehearsal for Le Mans, the race at the Spa circuit - Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps – in Belgium saw the Porsche Hybrid 919 adapted by the engineering team to match the track’s fast characteristics. The car used the ‘Le Mans package’ which is modified for higher top speeds and less down force. There were also significant switches at the front, with the introduction of upgraded head lights to cope with the various apexes.
Also in the mix was Dempsey Proton Racing, who were making their own car changes to gain a competitive advantage.
