Following in the footsteps of an outstanding tradition of sportscar racing with the World Championship and the 24 Hour of Le Mans, season 10 marks the tenth anniversary of the FIA World Endurance Championship in its current form. A new top-class Hypercar category attracted a number of global manufacturers and the scene is set for a very exciting few years ahead. Making its first foray in endurance racing, Prema ORLEN Team joined the pack in the LMP2 class, featuring racecars designed by four approved manufacturers with a spec engine and cost control measures.
The fabled 24 Hours of Le Mans - the cornerstone of the FIA WEC - attract the world's attention every June for a legendary twice-around-the-clock event, but the calendar also features popular and iconic tracks such as Sebring, Spa, Monza, Fuji and Bahrain. The WEC continues to offer teams, drivers, partners and stakeholders a unique stage to compete at some of the world’s best race circuits. It also helps offer manufacturers a real-world relevance to advances in road car design and crossover technology, performance and safety.
In LMP2, the team aspect is particularly relevant. All the drivers are classified according to their CV and experience, and the line-up must include a "silver-rated" driver, with limited experience or previous achievements, alongside two "gold" or "platinum" full professionals.
