WEC Full Access from Portimao live tonight!
Episode two of WEC Full Access goes live tonight, giving fans behind-the-scenes insights from the second round of the FIA WEC from an action-packed 6 Hours of Portimao.
The second episode from Portimao is available on the FIA WEC YouTube channel from 21:00 CEST / 20:00 BST tonight (Tuesday).
The episode is also available in French HERE.
Giving fans a fascinating insight into the WEC’s biggest teams and drivers, WEC Full Access covers everything from team briefings to heated mid-race discussions. It is the ultimate YouTube series which documents the most private areas of the WEC paddock.
This episode closely follows home hero, Antonio Felix Da Costa, as his former team-mate and WEC commentator Anthony Davidson attends an intimate dinner at his home with family and friends as he prepares for his final LMP2 outing.
We also witness first-hand the heartache for Vector Sport’s ace driver Gabriel Aubry as the Frenchman misses out on pole position in the closest qualifying session in LMP2 history. There’s also footage of private conversations on the grid as pre-race tensions build, as well as some in-race altercations between team-mates in the garages.
The episode also covers late-race dramas including when United Autosports lost radio contact with the team, and the nail-bitingly close battle in LMGTE Am between eventual winners Corvette Racing and runners-up AF Corse.
The on-track action is coupled with valuable insight from 2014 FIA WEC champion Anthony Davidson who, alongside experienced pitlane reporter Louise Beckett, chat to the drivers in the paddock and explain what it’s really like to compete in the world’s most prestigious sportscar series.
Throughout the season, WEC Full Access will take viewers inside the stories as they happened, letting fans experience the often stressful, but always entertaining, world of endurance racing… Don’t miss it!
