WEC 2013, Teams and Races

The WEC goes in 2013 in his 2nd year. They will be still 8 rounds, including the 24h of Le Mans. The WEC will drive in Austin instead of the 12h of Sebring and Silverstone is now the season opener. They will also make ”Super Weekends” with the ELMS (European Le Mans Series) in Silverstone and Spa, ALMS with Austin and the AsLMS (Asian Le Mans Series) in Fuji and Shanghai.

Toyota will only use one TS030 in the entire WEC season (apart from Spa and Le Mans). Audi will still use two R18 Diesel Hybrids and  four cars for Le Mans. Audi will even compete the 12h of Sebring, the season opener of the ALMS (American Le Mans Series). Rebillion will only use one Lola B10/60 Toyota, because they use two of them in the ALMS. OAK and JRM didn’t confirm anything to their LMP1 programm and Strakka will also use one HPD ARX-03a. So only 5 cars are in the LMP1 class, maybe more in Spa and Le Mans.

The LMP2 is the class with the most cars. Lotus will use two T128, Gulf and Greaves will also use two cars. OAK will compete with two Morgan Nissans and Signatech Nissan with two Zyteks. ADR-Delta and Pecom will use one car each.

In GTE-Pro are two cars each from AF-Corse Ferrari 458 Italia, Manthey Porsche 911 and Aston Martin Vantage V12. In GTE-Am they could be two Corvette Rcaing ZR1, one IMSA Porsche and maybe one BMW Z4 from Saudi Falcons.

Note: I will visit the 6 Hours of Spa this year, follow me on twitter @Motorsport4ever and subscribe to motorsportracer97 on Youtube for news and (hopefully) HD footage of the ELMS and WEC race.
