In just over a week’s time the FIA World Endurance Championship will begin its fourth round at the Nürburgring in the Rhineland-Palatinate region of Germany.
Porsche will be hoping for yet another hat-trick after winning here in both 2015 and 2016, and in turn looking to extend their lead in the Championship before the WEC family heads off for its summer break.
Toyota will be aiming to put the past along with the gremlins behind them in France and can pick up on their pre-Le Mans winning streak by beating the German outfit at their home race, that said, Toyota are also based in Germany (Cologne).
Looking at this year’s race wins so far, another podium is more than possible for the Chinese Jackie Chan DC Racing team, which would give their championship lead an even healthier boost.
Finally, who knows what will happen in LMGTE Pro, with three different teams (Ford, AF Corse and Aston Martin) taking the top steps so far in 2017.
Clearwater Racing will be hoping they can come away from the Ring still leading the AM Championship, having been the surprise package at the opening round and again securing a solid podium at Spa.
