Wec: 6hours of Monza

The FIA World Endurance Championship will visit the legendary Autodromo Nazionale di Monza later this week for the WEC 6 Hours of Monza (7-9 July), as the fight for the 2023 endurance racing titles heats up across all three categories.

With Ferrari AF Corse winning round four of FIA WEC, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Hypercar battle has intensified as Ferrari is closing on category leaders Toyota who are now just 18 points ahead in the overall standings. However, the LMP2 title fight is even closer as a mere four points separate Team WRT and recent Le Mans winners Inter Europol Competition.

Thirty-six cars will tackle the 5.793-kilometre Autodromo Nazionale di Monza or ‘the temple of speed’ which is famed for its long high-speed straights where Hypercars reach speeds in the region of 318kph and nearly 60% of the lap is travelled with a fully-open throttle. During each tour of the circuit, Hypercar drivers will shift gears 36 times.

Marking the first time that the Ferrari 499P Hypercar will be raced competitively at Monza and coupled with Ferrari’s emphatic victory at the recent 24 Hours of Le Mans, the ‘Tifosi’ will be out in force later this week! Moreover, 12 of the 108 drivers competing at Monza will be Italian and there are six Ferraris on the entry list (two Ferrari 499P Hypercars and four Ferrari 488 GTE Evos).
