Watch Porsche Win The 2016 WEC Championship All Over Again
Just as the 2017 season is kicking off, the FIA has uploaded the entire 2016 season to YouTube.
We're not very far removed from the start of the 2017 World Endurance Championship season, kicking off with the 6 hours of Silverstone in just 9 days time. The 2016 season featured great battles from Porsche, Audi, and Toyota in the LMP1 category. While Audi has left the series for 2017, you can still go back and relive the amazing drama that was 2016 with three high-level hybrid prototype manufacturers. Thanks to the FIAWEC YouTube page, every single hour of racing is now available for your watching pleasure. There are eight full 6-hour races, plus the highlights package from the 24 hours of Le Mans, giving you more than two days of video coverage to pore over.

Porsche did a great job of managing the racing for the full season. Audi was excluded by infraction from their season opening victory at Silverstone, and Toyota lost out at the last minute at Le Mans, meaning Porsche won six of the nine championship rounds. Following the highs of defending their Le Mans victory, Porsche continued to steamroll the competition. Each one of these races had some excellent racing, superb strategy calls, and phenomenal traffic management. If you didn't follow the season in 2016, you have an opportunity to watch it all now and catch up.
