WEC reports

FIA World Endurance Championship, Shanghai, 9/11/2013

Markus Palttala took the chequered flag in 2nd position in the penultimate round of the FIA World Endurance Championship keeping the title chances of IMSA Performance Matmut and teammates Raymond Narac and Jean-Karl Vernay alive until the final round in Bahrain end of this month.

“With Fuji becoming a non-starter, it was great to be back in real action in the WEC. I’m obviously delighted to stand on the podium with my teammates and to have helped them to take a step forward in their title challenge. We got this result due to faultless work by everyone in the team and all 3 drivers but we still need to improve our outright performance to be able to win in Bahrain. Everyone at IMSA Performance Matmut is very motivated and I’m happy to be part of this successful team sharing the Porsche GT3-RSR #76 with two great drivers. Just 9 points separate the 3 top teams and driver crews, so it’ll be an interesting fight in 3 weeks!”
