2016 WEC Prologue Recap

The WEC’s official preseason test is in the books. Porsche topped the time charts, picking up where they left off last season. The only thing out of the ordinary was Audi having uncharacteristic reliability issues. Many teams will stick around for private testing at Paul Ricard in the coming days. The WEC was kind enough to give a quick recap of activities at this weekend’s preseason test.
