Final shakedown: the Prologue of the WEC Super Season

On April 6, Porsche heads into the new season of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) with the two-day Prologue on the Circuit Paul Ricard.

On the racetrack in the south of France, which opened in 1970, the Porsche GT Team will simulate an entire race weekend with the two 911 RSR in order to tackle the 15-month Super Season perfectly prepared. Porsche’s factory driver Gianmaria Bruni celebrates his comeback to the world’s most important race series for sports cars.

After its 2017 debut season, Porsche will again fight for the drivers’ and manufacturer’s world championship titles with the 911 RSR during the Super Season. Depending on the restrictor, the sports car’s water-cooled flat-six engine positioned in front of the rear axle produces 510 hp. Three customer teams, Dempsey Proton Racing, Gulf Racing and Project 1, field a total of four other Porsche 911 RSR in the GTE-Am class.
