The WEC's Super Season. Had a great ring to it, right? Well, at the conclusion of the 2019 Le Mans 24hrs, it FINALLY came to an end.

Toyota's double victory at the 24hrs, finally ending the wait they have suffered for over 3 decades, at last took the monkey off their back, but the season was blighted by lacking competition and and poor rule making. YET, the season still had its perks, even for both Toyota and the LMP1 class overall.

Today we discuss the 2019 Le Mans 24 hours, experienced by 2 of Stelvio Automotive's regulars, looking at the state of LMP1 but also opening the casket on the battles behind them with thrilling battles in the GTE class.

We briefly look into Le Mans' past, as well as it's future with the 2020/21 rule-set finally confirmed, with a lot more on that to come on Stelvio Automotive. 

We hope you enjoy, please do get in touch with your thoughts on the "Super" season and the future of the World Endurance Championship.
