The year 2020 enters its final laps in high speed. A year that couldn’t have been less unusual. Particularly for the Porsche GT segment, it embodied an important motorsport adage.
The true success of a race is only proven throughout its course – which will run until the checkered flag is waved. Why does this simple statement represent the past year so well?
Sadly, from an early moment of the year onwards, an empty grandstand was commonplace for the racetracks around the world. The drivers must have felt lonely while battling day by day, night by night, and lap by lap for precious seconds to gain an advantage. As usual in athletic competitions: against each other. And yet, this year, together – with each other. For each other. And for the sport. For the fans in front of their screens, unable to be a part of the WEC, IMSA or Cup series spectacles.
