Toyota won Great Britain’s 6 Hours of Silverstone, first 2017 WEC round where many teams involved are supplied by BMC. First past the flag was the n°8 TS050 hybrid of Buemi/Davidson/Nakajima, which finished clear of the n°2 (Bernhard/Bamber/Hartley) and n°1 (Jani/Lotterer/Tandy) Porsches.
The LM GTE Pro victory went to the class’s pole-winning N°67 Ford GT/Michelin (Priaulx/Tincknell/Derani) which took the spoils ahead of the N°51 Ferrari/Michelin (Pier Giudi/Calado) and N°91 Porsche/Michelin (Lietz/Makowiecki). The N°66 Ford and the N°71 Ferrari made it an all-Michelin top five.
Next race: 6th May, Spa-Francorchamps (B).
