Porsche Pushes Toyota Into Pit Lane Exit Trying In Vain To Block A Pass

Romain Dumas in the No. 2 Porsche 919 wanted to show the No. 5 Toyota TS050 who’s boss early during the 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas as the No. 5 tried to get around the Porsche. So, he darted over and forced the No. 5 to pass him through the pit lane exit.

There was no contact, and thankfully, no one got a noseful of car exiting the pits, so no action was taken by the race stewards. But dang, dude. There were over five hours in a six-hour race left to go at this point!

The joke’s ultimately on Porsche, though. It didn’t work, and the Toyota got the position anyway.
