World Cup Of Resistance 2019/2020: The New Season Starts ... Without Alonso The 2019/2020 World Cup of Resistance that starts this weekend marks the end of an era. The new season has the starting point in Silverstone, with a Spaniard in the main GT category, Miguel Molina. Barely two and a half months have passed since the 2018/2019 Super Resistance World season came to an end, a new season is about to begin. The WEC returns to its normal channel for the new 2019-2020 campaign, but with important changes: the season starts mid-year, at Silverstone, but will end as usual in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This season will also be the last of the LMP1 prototypes before the arrival of the highly anticipated Hypercars. The main category LMP1 will once again have Toyota, as the only manufacturer, and with private equipment. In this case two: Rebellion and Ginetta, both two track prototypes. In the case of Toyota, after the departure of Alonso, he will continue with his two TS050 Hybrid: the former F1 and Porsche in the WEC, Brendon Hartley, will replace the Asturian in prototype number 8, accompanying the champions Sébastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima Conway, Kobayashi and "Pechito" López will return to number 7. Toyota will not have it as easy as years ago, as the championship organizers have matched performance between the Japanese LMP1 and private LMP1. In the preseason training in Montmeló, the "Prologue" led Toyota, but less than 3 tenths of a second of the first Rebellion. We will wait to see what happens in the first race to see to what extent the benefits are so matched. In the other category of prototypes, LMP2, highlights the arrival of Goodyear as a supplier of tires for three teams. In GTs, after the coup of Ford and BMW of the LMGTE Pro category, we will have the fight between Porsche, which opens a new 911 RSR, Aston Martin and Ferrari. Precisely in the AF Corse team, which runs with the 488 GTE EVO, will be the only fixed Spaniard in the championship, Miguel Molina, with the Ferrari number 71 alongside Davide Rigon.
WEC CALENDAR 2019-2020 This season, unlike the previous one, will only have one race at Le Mans, which will put the finishing touch on the season. Some tests change their configuration, going from the usual 6 hours at 4 in Silverstone and Shanghai, and at 8 in Bahrain. The inaugural race on the British circuit at 12 noon on Sunday; You can follow it by Eurosport. This is how the calendar is made.
Miguel Molina, in the Resistance World Cup with the official Ferrari team Miguel Molina continues to take steps forward in his sports career in the GTs and get a fixed position in the official Ferrari team for the World Cup.
The Catalan driver Miguel Molina is consolidating himself as one of the leading Spanish drivers in GT racing. After passing through the DTM, where he managed to be the first in our country to get a pole, get on the podium, win a race ... he left the German touring car championship with Audi to get fully into the Ferrari sphere. Since 2017, Molina alternates her commitments always up in the Ferrari GT: she has run in the GTE-Am category of the World Cup in some races, she has climbed the official Ferrari in other WEC events, such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans; He has been a regular in the Blancpain GT Series, of which he is the leader in this 2019 in the Endurance category in the absence of a career; He has been champion of the Pirelli World Challenge in the United States, in the Sprint X category, and runner-up of the ELMS.
Now, Ferrari has relied on him to fill the full-time position in the official team, AF Corse, in the 2019/2020 World Cup. The Catalan will take over from Sam Bird, who will focus on his career in Formula E. A new step by Molina in his prolific sports career, with only 30 years: his season at the WEC will start soon, on August 30- September 1 at Silverstone.
