Audi takes Silverstone 1-2

A fantastic battle took place between the second and third placed cars – the #50 Larbre Competition Corvette C6-ZR1 and the #81 8Star Motorsports Ferrari 458 Italia – although the final finishing positions could so easily have been reversed. In the final laps of the race Rui Aguas in the Ferrari was holding second position, hotly pursued by Fernando Rees in the Corvette, until the Ferrari was nudged from behind by the French car.

The contact led to a left rear puncture with just four minutes of the race to go and in the end the orange Ferrari was forced to cede the second step of the podium.

I have watched live stream start from finish. I think WEC should get more motor sport reporters and give interview with drivers and teams like F1. It will be more attraction from motor sport fans. GTE-Pro, Aston Martin is very strong and Ferrari was not match for Aston Martin power. Good race.

It was great to get such a full race report particularly as in the past i have felt that your reporting of sports and endurance racing has not been comprehensive enough. one niggle - it would have been nice to get the full results sheet at the end of the report as well.
