WEC: Championships to be settled in the Pearl of the Orient

6 Hours of Shanghai

2017 07 16 DSC02096For the eighth round of the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship, the WEC family travels to the Pearl of the Orient and the impressive Shanghai International Circuit on the outskirts of the country’s biggest city and its global financial hub.

Following the rain-drenched and weather-shortened last round in Japan, which shook up and tightened the championship positions in all classes, the 26 competitors will be keen to have a dry and uninterrupted 6 Hours of Shanghai as some title battles reach their final, exciting stages.  For others, every single point will count right to the end of the season and some may even wish to have another wet race!
