The new season of the FIA World Endurance Championship started off today with two practice sessions and Lotus Praga LMP2 was underway with its two Lotus Praga T128 LMP2.
The changing weather conditions made it impossible to do reasonable lap times. After numerous rain showers, the sun came out for some minutes and the track dried up until there was rain again. Nevertheless, Lotus took the opportunity to learn about the car under different conditions. The team hopes that the weather will be better for tomorrow’s qualifying. The qualifying format has been changed for this season. Two drivers from each car must set at least two timed laps during qualifying. The average of the four best lap times (the best two lap times of each driver) will serve as the reference time for establishing the grid. The debut of this new format is going to be interesting and will ensure that there will be a lot of track action.
