WEC: The 2015 World Endurance Championship is as fast as Formula One (almost)

WEC

The speed of the World Endurance Championship has increased this year (thanks to three manufacturers pushing new technology) and the leaders recent laptimes at Silverstone were only a few seconds off Lewis Hamilton’s winning pace at the same circuit. The LMP1 machines were actually quicker than some of the F1 tailenders, which is amazing because they’re notably heavier and are designed to run at that speed for 24 hours.

The cars run again this weekend at Spa Francorchamps, another Grand Prix circuit that will provide an interesting comparison.
