HISTORY

The Porsche 919 hybrid n.1 with the lead Timo Bernhard, Mark Webber and Brandon Hartley in 2016 was to defend the 2015 World Championship Endurance victory, and to seek the victory escaped the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2015 and won by the twin car.

The 2016 Porsche 919 hybrid is the third evolution of the initial design of 2014 is part of the LMP1-H prototype category, has two engines: a thermal fueled petrol, flanked by an electric powered by a lithium ion battery. The Porsche 919 hybrid uses two energy recovery systems, from exhaust gases and braking.
The thermal engine, a 90 cc V4 of 2000 cc, supercharged by a turbocharger, is capable of delivering a power of 370 kW. While the hybrid system brought to the Porsche 8 MJ transmitted a power of 290 kw to the front.
The chassis of the Porsche 919 hybrid is a monocoque made of carbon fiber.

Despite being the favorite for the Le Mans 24-hour victory, the Porsche 919 hybrid n.1 had a problem during the race and forced the car to a long stop. The recovery attempt failed, and I crossed the finish line in thirteenth position to 38 laps from the sister car, the Porsche n.2, winner of a race that saw yet another defeat of the Toyota, which lost the race due to a technical problem three minutes from the end while he was largely in the lead.

MERCEDES-BENZ CLR n.4

HISTORY

The Mercedes-Benz CLR is a prototype designed by Mercedes-Benz to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1999. After winning the 1998 Grand Touring World Championship with the CLK-LM progenitor, Mercedes realizes the car for the LM GTP class, a new class created by the ACO specifically for Le Mans, which also includes the Toyota GT-One.

At the 24 Hours of Le Mans 1999 the Mercedes-Benz n.4 driven by Mark Webber, during the practice of Thursday while he is facing the back on the straight that precedes the Indianapolis curve at about 320 km/h, suddenly takes off and makes a double tonneau and then fall on the wheels. The car repaired for the Saturday morning warm up, with Webber behind the wheel, resumes the flight before the Mulsanne curve at around 340 km/h, the car is semi-destroyed and the driver is unharmed. Mercedes-Benz 4 is forced to retire.

Mercedes worried by these episodes, decided to start the same but with changes to prevent the recurrence of incidents occurred. During the race, just before night, the Mercedes-Benz CLR driven by Peter Dumbreck while chasing a Toyota GT-One on the back before the Indianapolis curve takes off like an airplane, rotates in the air and then landed in the woods 30 meters from the track; the pilot is unharmed, while the car is destroyed. The Stuttgart manufacturer stops immediately even the last CLR in the race and the Mercedes team withdraws from the race.

TOYOTA HYBRID TS050 n.6

HISTORY

The Toyota TS050 hybrid is the third LMP1 car produced by the Japanese company since its return to the endurance category. The car completely revolutionized by the previous TS040, is equipped with a twin-turbo 2.4-liter V4 engine combined with an 8mj hybrid system. The hybrid system generates its power by recovering energy from the braking system at the front and rear by means of an ion lithium battery.

The car won the second place in the 24 hours of Le Mans in 2016 with the number 6 of Sarrazin, Kobayashi and Conway, touching once again the victory of the race with the number 5, which stopped three minutes from the end of twenty-four hours complaining of a loss of power of the hybrid system. In the World Endurance Championship he obtains the best result with the 6-hour victory of the Fuji with the number 6 piloted by Sarrazin, Kobayashi and Conway.

HISTORY

The Audi R18 e-tron quattro is the prototype with which the German manufacturer participated in the 2016 Endurance World Championship. Of the R18 this is the sixth version, after the defeat of the 24 hours of Le Mans and the WEC in 2015, the Audi revolutionizes the car in a clear way, both aerodynamically with cutting-edge solutions, but above all with the hybrid engine switching to lithium-ion batteries and climbing in the 6 megajoules class from the previous 4.

Despite the efforts undertaken, the Audi R18 e-tron quattro proved to be a little too fragile. At the 24 hours of Le Mans obtained the third place with the No. 8 led by the trio Di Grassi, Duval and Jarvis. During the season they won two championship races: the 6 hours of Spa-Francorchamps and the 6 hours of Bahrain.

AUDI R18 e-tron quattro n.2

HISTORY

The Audi R18 e-tron quattro n.2 is the prototype with which Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer and Benoit Treluyer participated in the 2014 World Endurance Championship.

The main changes compared to the Audi R18 2013 are, a revised engine with an electric turbocharger, updates to the hybrid flywheel system with the addition of a waste heat recovery system. The system captured the thermal energy from the exhaust by adding power to the turbocharger or flywheel storage system. The aerodynamics has been heavily revised according to the new rules, abandoning the diffuser aspirated by the 2013 model forbidden by the regulation.

Despite being inferior in performance to the Toyota TS040, the Audi R18 e-tron quattro n.2 won the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2014. The victory came taking advantage of the usual problems of the Japanese manufacturer in the French race. During the season of the championship, Fassler, Lotterer and Treluyer also won the 6 hours of Circuit of the Americas.
