Where to see all the thrills of the 6 Hours of Fuji again

 

The 6 Hours of Fuji was a breath-taking thriller from start to finish, and is already being spoken of as a standout race of the season. 

Toyota Gazoo Racing claimed its first victory for nearly two years, in front of 53,200 passionate Japanese spectators, but not without a battle from flag to flag with both Audi and Porsche.  The race for honours and maximum points in LMP2 was equally hot with G-Drive Racing finally claiming the win, while Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Team UK took its first WEC win in LMGTE Pro.  Aston Martin Racing took its fourth LMGTE Am victory of the season, to close the gap in the title chase.
