WEC Super Season is Underway
Friday 6th April 2018
The FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) Super Season is underway with the annual prologue at the Circuit Paul Ricard at Le Castellet in the South of France, where once again all competitors gather and test together for the first time ahead of the opening race, the Total 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps on 03-05 May.
With over 75% of the cars taking part in the championship using Xtrac gearboxes, including all cars in the LMP1 category, members of the Xtrac sportscar support team attended with representatives from the engineering, R&D and commercial departments.
Teams have the opportunity of up to 30 hours of testing throughout Friday 6 and Saturday 7 April with both daylight and night-time testing.
Following the first race at Spa, teams will have to prepare for the first of two Le Mans 24 hours races on June 16, where Xtrac will have a full support crew and spares for the entire race week, such is the importance of this race to our customers.
