Chopard at Spa-fran­cor­champs

Porsche put in a very strong per­for­mance at the 6 Hours of Spa-fran­cor­champs race on 7 May. Race con­di­tions were vastly changed from the sun, rain, and snow ex­pe­ri­enced in the prior race at Sil­ver­stone, UK: race con­di­tions at the Bel­gian race was very sunny, with track tem­per­a­tures of up to 50 de­grees Cel­sius prov­ing very pun­ish­ing for the en­gines. Af­ter a thrilling six-hour race, the team of Chopard am­bas­sador Ro­main Du­mas fin­ished se­cond in the Porsche 919 Hy­brid, clock­ing the fastest lap of the race and ex­tend­ing its lead in the driv­ers’ cham­pi­onship, while the Porsche 919 Hy­brid led by Mark Web­ber and Bren­don Hart­ley reached fifth po­si­tion in the LMP1 race, putting Porsche Motorsport in a com­pet­i­tive po­si­tion for the up­com­ing 24 Hours of Le Mans in June. This is the third year that Chopard is the Of­fi­cial Tim­ing Part­ner of Porsche Motorsport.
