Record entry for WEC visit to Shanghai

The second leg of the FIA WEC’s 2018 visit to the Far East sees a return for the seventh consecutive season to Shanghai International Circuit in China, on the outskirts of the country's biggest city and its global financial hub. 
And what a visit it promises to be! 
The 2018 edition of the 6 Hours of Shanghai on Sunday, 18th November will boast its biggest ever entry (list HERE). No fewer than 35 cars will take the start of the fifth round of the WEC Super Season, including the welcome addition of Corvette Racing who join the LMGTE Pro class for the second time this year. Many eyes, however, will be on the Chinese-entered Jackie Chan DC Racing entries among which is Sino-Dutch driver Ho-Pin Tung. 
The 5.451km (3.387mile), 16-turn track is technically challenging and known to be hard on tyre wear so strategy will be more important than ever in the fight for success. The championship is well and truly getting into its stride now, with teams and driver combinations settling into the rhythm of world-class endurance racing and all will be looking to consolidate their positions in the standings before the winter break.
