Mexico WEC: Porsche sets early pace, Toyota hits crash setback

Porsche topped the collective test ahead of this weekend’s Six Hours of Mexico, with Audi right behind – but Toyota suffered a setback when Stephane Sarrazin shunted the #6 car.

The #1 Porsche set the pace in Timo Bernhard’s hands around the Mexican Grand Prix venue, setting a time of 1m26.847s. That was just over half a second clear of Loic Duval’s #8 Audi, with the points-leading #2 Porsche was third quickest, driven by Romain Dumas.

The #8 Audi was fourth fastest, ahead of the two Toyotas.

Sarrazin inflicted major damage when he spun the #6 car into the pitwall at the exit of the Peraltada. The car ended the session fifth fastest, but both Toyotas were 4s off the pace.

Rene Rast in the #26 G-Drive Oreca set the pace as usual in LMP2, four tenths ahead of the Strakka Gibson.

In GTE Pro, Gianmaria Bruni topped the timing screens in his AF Corse Ferrari, ahead of the #95 Aston Martin.

Wolf Henzler was quickest in GTE Am in his KCMG Porsche, a tenth clear of Emanuel Collard’s Ferrari.
