Sunny days and hot asphalt: Business as usual in California. This past weekend, the Porsche factory drivers headed for the Laguna Seca Raceway.
The Porsche factory team will halt its commitment to the IMSA to the end of the running season – therefore, every race is a farewell to each racetrack. And it was a successful and perfectly executed one thanks to a well-thought-out strategy on the hot and sandy course in California. According to plan, the starting number 912 with the reigning champions Earl Bamber and Laurens Vanthoor was due to make 3 pit stops. Meanwhile, starting number 911 with Frédéric Makowiecki and Nick Tandy should only stop twice. So, the plan was for quick laps and differing strategies.
