IMG_7888With Friday dawning a beautiful cloudless day, the drivers of the 2014 FIA WEC assembled this morning on the steps of Silverstone’s new Wing Terrace for the first formal photo call of the 2014 season. 

IMG_7891With the usual WEC fan friendliness, the drivers assembled for the media photographers in a public area, giving the early arrivals a great chance to meet their heroes and grab autographs.

As the drivers started to trickle through for the line-up, the AF Corse Ferrari pilots started to stir the crowd, then the LMP1 teams started to arrive and the autograph hunters started to get busy. With the big-name endurance drivers such as Anthony Davidson, Oliver Jarvis and World Champion Tom Kristensen getting stopped every few yards the way was paved for Porsche’s highest profile driver, ex-Red Bull F1 pilot Mark Webber’s entry and subsequent ‘mobbing’ by the waiting crowd.
