It’s too close to call from simulation, but if I had to make a guess I think the Porsche might just be ahead of the F1 field when it comes to delivering a complete package at the Nordschleife. We didn’t want to see the most innovative race car of its time disappearing unceremoniously in to the museum. Porsche GT3 RS approaching Adenauer Forst, a blind chicane on the Nordschleife. Records on that circuit have yet to fall out of fashion regardless of how many times James May-types try to appeal to practicality, and to hold the top, top, spot would be quite a PR opportunity for Porsche. Porsche 919 Tribute Tour auf der Nordschleife Der heutige Paarlauf des Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo und des 956 C auf der Nordschleife des Nürburgrings. The engineers also unchained the aerodynamics of the 919 Evo from the regulations. Congratulations to Timo for his sensational drive. All logos and trademarks mentioned on Porsche Newsroom are trademarks of Dr. Ing. One could argue that Spa was a wise circuit choice from the team planning to set a lap record, but we shouldn’t take this away from them. Blanchimont is a very high-speed corner, and the LMP1 car can stay flat on the throttle through here, just as the F1 can, but the more efficient aerodynamics package on the Porsche gets it to a higher top speed. The 919 Evo is headed to the Nordschleife later this year, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the whole point of the car to begin with. On top came developments that were prepared for the 2018 WEC but never raced after the withdrawal at the end of 2017. The combustion engine drives the rear axle while the electro motor boosts the front axle to accelerate the car with four-wheel drive. The 34-year old Porsche works driver from Switzerland – Le Mans outright winner and Endurance World Champion of 2016 – set a lap of 1:41,770 minutes on the 7.004 kilometre (4.35 mile) Grand Prix circuit in the Belgian Ardennes mountains. We’ve assumed that the F1 car will respond similarly when it comes to grip and downforce while making setup changes for the ‘ring, but this might not be true, and one of these cars might have better ride performance which would prove to be advantageous. Failing that we must use a powerful laptime simulation that can solve for optimal energy deployment, active aero, clever torque vectoring and racing line optimisation. The 919 is powered by a compact two-litre turbo charged V4-cylinder engine and two energy recovery systems – brake energy from the front axle combined with exhaust energy. 7. LMP Team Principal Andreas Seidl commented: “As a race team we constantly search for challenges that push a car, driver and team to operate on the limit. Compared to the car in conventional race trim, the dry weight was reduced by 39 kilograms to 849 kilograms. Nov 27, 2020 #1 You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp. Conquering the “Green Hell” definitely provided such a challenge. We took a look at this question and by using our cloud computing simulation platform we’ve endeavoured to find out! He is a huge admirer of Stefan Bellof. The British Mercedes driver took pole position for the Belgian Grand Prix in 1:42.553 minutes. Right out of Turn 1 we can see the Porsche uses the 440PS on-demand front axle electric motor to good effect when combined with the 720PS V4 engine at the rear to provide all-wheel drive traction, helping it to pull ahead of the Mercedes. All contents of Porsche Newsroom are carefully researched and compiled. 2. Fixed height side skirts increase the aerodynamic performance again as efficiently as possible. This isn’t easy to be reproduced by anyone. Starting with our model of the Porsche 919 Evo, we dialled in the correlation to match laptimes, energy deployment and car speed around Spa and the Nordschleife. Lap simulations assume perfect driver performance, when this isn’t likely to be the case for a 21km circuit with 154 turns. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. Monocoque: Composite material structure consisting of carbon fibre with an aluminium honeycomb core.

Toward the end of the Kemmel Straight, the Porsche backs off early to recharge the battery (PBatteryLoad goes negative) in preparation for using the front axle electric motor to accelerate out of the next corner. The Porsche has incredible energy management, and it uses the 8.49MJ of electrical energy that it recovers intelligently around the circuit to help it boost acceleration performance. Motorsports; Season 2018; 24 Hours of Le Mans vLMP1; World Endurance Championship LMP1; Germany \ Nürburgring; Racingcars; 919 Hybrid Porsche cultivates a long and deep relationship with the ‘Ring. In theory we have our answer, the F1 car should be quicker, but in practice due to a variety of reasons it’s much too close to call. The German driver from Gießen, who tragically died at Spa-Francorchamps in 1985, counted as the biggest racing talent of his time. Towards the end of the lap, the LMP1 car uses brake regen into the final chicane, of which 80% of the energy collected can be deployed by the all-wheel drive system on the start-finish straight which cements this lead and sees the LMP1 car finish 0.783seconds ahead. The new larger front diffuser now balances the new and very large rear wing, both of which have actively controlled drag reduction systems (DRS). For the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo the entire hardware of the power train remained untouched. We can draw similar conclusions to Spa; the F1 car gains through tight corners, while the LMP1 car has a significant straight-line advantage. Original poster. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. The Porsche 919 Evo has just set a new overall record at Nürburgring Nordschleife with a time of 5:19.55 minutes. Unbelievable! The Tribute Tour is our homage on these years.

Record attempts wouldn’t be possible without the highly professional track support.“, 5:19.55 minutes! The technical regulations from the FIA for the WEC and Le Mans, introduced in 2014, successfully delivered close competition between the conceptually very different class 1 Le Mans hybrid prototypes entered by Audi, Porsche and Toyota. I’m pretty familiar with the Nordschleife. Another milestone on the 919 Tribute Tour! * Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. At this point things are looking very good for the modified LMP1 car as it has pulled out a massive 2second lead. 3. Statements concerning standard equipment and statutory, legal and tax regulations and repercussion are valid for the Federal Public of Germany only. At the same time it recuperates energy from the exhaust system that otherwise would pass unused in to the atmosphere. Safety is the highest priority. 1.

The LMP1 car manages to stay ahead until the Carousel at 13.5km in, but a series of tight and twisty corners from here to the main straight allows the F1 car to overtake and open up a lead of 3.9sec. Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. Thus, its hybrid power train now develops a system output of 1160 hp. Timo Bernhard stellte im Porsche 919 Evo eine neue Bestmarke für die schnellste je gefahrene Runde in der "Grünen Hölle" auf. Porsche redesigned the 919 Hybrid for the 2015 season, carrying over the concept from 2014. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Being a record winner at the Nürburgring, Timo was the logical choice for the job. Both cars are incredibly quick through Eau Rouge with the Mercedes hitting 316kph through the speed trap, but the LMP1 car manages to stay ahead and keep pulling to a top speed of 359kph on the Kemmel Straight by using its powerful DRS which acts on the rear wing, but unlike F1 can also influence the diffuser aeroflow. During the run, Berhard lapped the 12.94-mile Nordschleife in 5:19.55. The WEC efficiency regulations limited the energy from fuel per lap by using a fuel flow meter. Porsche 919-18 Hybrid Evo outlaw record car 2018 Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record 2018 Spa-Francorchamps lap record Premiere: 2018 April 9 at Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium These changes can be explained by a combination of the following factors: 1) An actual difference in grip between the two circuits. Now back to the question in hand though, which car would win around the Nordschleife? Porsche is currently at the Nordschleife with the 919 Hybrid Evo to try and take down the all-time record. Running a 5:19.55 around the famous Nordschleife, the Porsche 919 Evo driven by Timo Bernhard just obliterated the all-time record. More details soon in the Porsche Newsroom: https://t.co/Q9142DXn9V #919tribute pic.twitter.com/eWymXSgVl1, Fritz Enzinger, Vice President LMP1, added: “A big thank you goes to our development team in Weissach and the crew on site for the focused and safe operation of this record attempt. Combined with the all-wheel drive system, one might expect the Porsche 919 Evo to be more forgiving when it comes to a small driver mistake, allowing the car to steer around a slightly different line in order to get back on course. These changes can be explained by a combination of the following factors: 5:19.55 minutes – Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo takes record 06/29/2018 Best time on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife: Timo Bernhard beats six-minute mark with the 919 Hybrid Evo in the “Green Hell”. When we get to the start of the final sector, the Porsche is now 1.2seconds behind. This results in an average speed of 233.8 km/h (145.3 mph) on what is revered by race drivers, engineers and enthusiasts alike as the world’s most difficult track. 3) A reduction in driver confidence around the Green Hell resulting in lower apex speeds than would be theoretically possible.

In total the aero modifications resulted in 53 per cent higher downforce and an increase in efficiency by 66 per cent (compared to the 2017 Spa WEC qualifying). Stefan Bellof hatte die Rundenzeit im Abschlusstrainin… The Porsche 919 Evo is a one-of-a-kind car, and it was made by Porsche on a shoestring budget, with very little development time. In addition, it has the advantage of not being limited to the FIA stipulated DRS zones and can gain an additional straight-line advantage through extra DRS deployment. In 2015, on the thirtieth anniversary of Bellof’s fatal accident, Timo raced at the Spa-Francorchamps 6-hour race of the FIA World Endurance Championship with a helmet carrying the famous black-red-gold design of the 1980s star. The electrical energy that comes from the front brakes and the exhaust system is temporarily stored in a liquid-cooled lithium ion battery. Er benötigte lediglich 5:19.546 Minuten für die 20,832 Kilometer lange Strecke. Die Rekordmarke von 6:11.13 Minuten hielt 35 Jahre lang und galt eigentlich als Streckenrekord für die Ewigkeit. Porsche 919 Hybrid @ the Nordschleife. He topped the previous track record, set by Lewis Hamilton in 2017 qualifying, by 0.783 seconds. Porsche's 919 Hybrid Evo, based on its Le Mans prototype racer, utterly crushed the overall lap record at Germany's Nürburgring Nordschleife on Friday. The record attempt is a part of Porsche's "919 Tribute Tour," and it's scheduled to make a demo lap of the Nordschleife on May 12, ahead of the 24 Hours Nurburgring race. 9. Insofar as Porsche Newsroom provides information concerning vehicles, the data refers to the German market. Best time on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife: Timo Bernhard beats six-minute mark with the 919 Hybrid Evo in the “Green Hell”. A Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo, driven by Timo Bernhard, erased the old mark with an average speed of 233.8 kmh (about 145.3). Also his average speed was over 200 km/h. Porsche AG does not accept any liability with respect to the results that may be achived through the use of the information, in particular with respect to accuracy, up-to-dateness and completeness.

Automotive News June 29, 2018 by Gary Slater. September 26-29: Porsche Rennsport Reunion Laguna Seca (California, USA). Would an F1 car beat the recent lap record around the Nürburgring Nordschleife of 5m19.546 set by the Porsche 919 Evo? The car was categorised into the 8 MJ (2.2 kWh) class because of a lighter, refined and improved hybrid system increasing its maximum power to 294 hp (219 kW), following a decision made by Porsche around early … To match the data at the Nürburgring we needed to drop track grip by 3% and remove 5.3% of the car’s downforce. The generic Canopy F1 car model was tuned, matching it to Lewis’ qualifying lap from Spa 2017. Timo Bernhard smashes Nordschleife record in a Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo. Thanks to the aerodynamic downforce, at sections I never imagined you can stay on full throttle. Proud and relieved Timo Bernhard, five-time overall winner of the Nürburgring 24-hours, two-time outright winner of the Le Mans 24-hours and reigning World Endurance Champion with the Porsche 919 Hybrid, clambered out of the tight Le Mans prototype cockpit. The Porsche Newsroom is a service provided by the Porsche Communication for journalists, bloggers and the online community. This causes a reduction in aerodynamic performance. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. “This is a great moment for me and for the entire team – the 919 programme’s icing on the cake. The Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo has broken the outright lap record at the Nurburgring Nordschleife with a time of 5:19.55. Without being bound by the regulations, the team at Porsche have implemented torque vectoring. Freed from these restrictions, equipped with an updated software but running the regular race fuel (E20, containing 20 per cent bio ethanol), the Evo version delivers 720 hp. Another milestone on the 919 Tribute Tour! It is terrific what our team has achieved in four years in the World Endurance Championship: From 2015 to 2017 three overall wins in Le Mans and three drivers’ and three manufacturers’ world championship titles. Driving the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo, Bernhard beat the previous lap record, set by Stefan Bellof, by 51.58 seconds. The mission was to set a new record on the 20-kilometre Nordschleife circuit. Spread this out over a longer, much less forgiving circuit, and we would expect the gap between drivers to exceed 1.7sec. To match the data at the Nürburgring we needed to drop track grip by 3% and remove 5.3% of the car’s downforce. h.c. F. Porsche AG (hereinafter: Porsche AG), unless otherwise stated. Porsche are accustomed to setting fast times at the ‘ring, with excellent technical facilities; while it’s been several decades since F1 teams were racing around here. The Evo weighs only 849 kilograms and its modified (and now active) aerodynamics generate over 50 per cent more downforce compared to the WEC model. In this regard, I also like to thank the Nürburgring team. The LMP1 car claws this back to just 2sec in the long sprint to the finish line, but this isn’t enough. By continuing to use this website, you agree to our use of cookies. The Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo alongside the 956 C on the German Nürburgring Nordschleife was the second stop of the ‘919 Tribute Tour’ (2018). Nach 35 Jahren und 32 Tagen ist der Rekord auf der Nürburgring-Nordschleife von Stefan Bellof gefallen. The Evo version of the Porsche 919 Hybrid is based on the car that took outright victory at the Le Mans 24-Hours and won the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Porsche hat unter großer medialer Beachtung den Strecken-Rekord auf der Nordschleife geknackt. this article takes a look at setup for front, rear and all wheel drive cars at the Nordschleife. Today’s success is the second track record on the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo tally: On April 9 this year in Spa, the dramatic evolution of the three-times Le Mans winner lapped faster than a Formula One car with Neel Jani at the wheel. We have seen from Spa that the LMP1 car has incredible straight-line speed, but through tight corners, the Mercedes F1 car has the edge on performance. Starting with our model of the Porsche 919 Evo, we dialled in the correlation to match laptimes, energy deployment and car speed around Spa and the Nordschleife. Applying the same 3% drop in grip and 5.3% downforce to the F1 car as required for correlation with the Porsche 919 Evo gave the following result around the Nordschleife: Taking everything that we can into account with the simulation, the headline result is that the 2017 Mercedes F1 car could get around the Nürburgring in 5m17.549, which is around 2seconds quicker than the Porsche 919 Evo. To help further expand the performance envelope, the Evo gained a four-wheel brake-by-wire system to provide additional dynamic yaw control. how easily the drivers can consistently push out fast laptimes close to the limit. Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. Today we have shown the full potential of the 919 Evo. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. Auch ein Jahr danach blicken wir noch immer fasziniert auf diese Onboard. While the LMP1 car is super-efficient in a straight line, which makes sense for a car with shrouded wheels which was developed to win on the long straights of Le Mans, it lacks the high overall downforce of the F1 car and can’t match the apex speeds in this twisty section of the track.
