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.
