There are some changes in the standings after the FIA World Endurance Championship race at Fuji.
In the LMP1 class, Toyota Gazoo Racing is now first and second in the championship, with #8 ahead of #7, since Rebellion Racing #3 ended their race on the barrier, early on. Rebellion Racing #1 overtakes fourth position, but they’re a lot of points behind the Toyota cars.
Signatech Alpine Matmut #36 kept their lead in LMP2, with the skin of their teeth, and they have both Jackie Chan DC Racing cars on their tail, with just one point behind. After that there’s a big gap down to DragonSpeed #31, which is fourth, while Larbre Competition #50 is fifth.
Michael Christensen and Kevin Estre continue to lead the GTE Pro class with Porsche #92, followed by Ford Chip Ganassi Team UK #66 and AF Corse Ferrari #51. While #92 is assured to keep the lead after the next round, there are only eleven points between Ford #66, Ferrari #51 and Porsche #91. So a lot of things can happen.
Dempsey-Proton Racing Porsche #77 is leading the GTE Am class, due to the huge advantage they got by winning Le Mans. Team Project 1 Porsche #56 comes, however, closer and closer, while TF Sport Aston Martin #90 and Aston Martin Racing #98 aren’t far behind.
The teams have a month waiting time, before the six hours of Shanghai is run on 18 November.
