Saturday, December 8, 2018

Porsche will again tackle the IMSA WeatherTech Championship with two 911 RSR in 2019.

The collaboration with Core Autosport has been extended for another three years.

As in the past, the cockpit of the number 911 vehicle is shared by Nick Tandy and Patrick Pilet. They will be joined at the endurance races in Daytona, Sebring, Watkins Glen and at Petit Le Mans by Frédéric Makowiecki.

The No. 912 sister car is manned by the regular crew of Earl Bamber and Laurens Vanthoor. These two receive backing at the endurance classics from Mathieu Jaminet.

Commitment to Le Mans

At the 87th edition of the 24-hour race at Le Mans, Porsche will again field four works vehicles.

The two Porsche GT Teams from the FIA WEC and the IMSA Weathertech Championship each campaign a pair of ca. 510 hp GT racers from Weissach.

The cockpit of the #91 car is shared by Gianmaria Bruni, Richard Lietz and Frédéric Makowiecki. The #92 vehicle is helmed by the title defenders Kévin Estre, Michael Christensen and Laurens Vanthoor.

Patrick Pilet, Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber take up the race in the number 93 car.

Sharing driving duties in the 911 RSR with the starting number 94 are the youngsters Sven Müller, Mathieu Jaminet and Dennis Olsen.
