    I seem to recall Audi doing a similar thing with their R18 when they were retiring from WEC racing. Take all the FIA restrictors / limitations off and run the car at its fullest possible send.

    The 919 EVO also broke Lewis Hamilton's F1 lap record at Spa by 0.78 sec; which was then beat by Vettel (iirc) the very next year.

    Love me some LMP1 cars; hate to see them going away.

    Insane! From what I heard, Timo had to go through extensive testing for reaction time, eye sight, etc. besides all the other physical conditioning as the strains on just being able to process what's happening was something that had not been done before.

    Tom was right, Porsche, there is no substitute :-)
