Philippe Weess of Marelli

It is with great sadness that we learned today of the sudden death of Philippe Weess, a well-known and very popular figure who led the Marelli programme (formerly Magneti Marelli) in the FIA World Endurance Championship for many years.

“Philippe was returning home to Portugal after the final WEC round of the season in Bahrain when he suffered a fatal heart attack.  On behalf of the whole paddock, and particularly the WEC Organisation team, we send our sincere thoughts and condolences to Philippe’s family, friends and colleagues.”
