- The large grandstand at the Raidillon was inaugurated today at the end of the afternoon. This new grandstand offers a great view of the descent through the Raidillon. 


- Three Porsche Cups are supporting the WEC this week. In addition to the Porsche Carrera Cup France, the Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux and the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany are also on track, which means more than 60 Porsche 992 Cup cars. It should be noted that the meetings are well separated.


- Kevin Estre has a new helmet design at Spa-Francorchamps. The usual helmet colours of the official Porsche driver of the #92, which he shares with Michael Christensen, are still recognisable.
