Luhr commented “Our main goal was to come here and do a 24-hour test under race conditions, because as you know the car is brand new. For sure there is some work to do before Porsche can give this car to the costumer, but we already know that it can be successful.”

He added “The good thing was to come here without any pressure for championship points, because Spa is always a really dangerous race for the Championship. It was not an easy race, we spent a little bit of time in the pits, but at the end of the day it is good for all of us.”
