Pole for Audi, local team takes LMP2 Pole

Audi Sport Team Joest #8 has taken Pole Position for 6 hours of Mexico in the FIA WEC Championship.

Loic Duval and Lucas Di Grassi beat Porsche #2 and the sister car Audi #7 as well Porsche #1. Toyota Gazoo Racing was once again the slowest LMP1 works car, and their car really doesn’t seem to like the high downforce kit, as we saw the exactly same tendency at the Nürburgring, which was also a high downforce track. Rebellion Racing was faster than Bykolles Racing among the privateers.

In LMP2 we saw RGR Sport by Morand taking Pole Position. Signatech Alpine #36 with Nicolas Lapierre was the clostest competitor, but crashed on their final flying lap. Strakka Racing will start the race as 3rd.
