Porsche continues works commitment in the USA

Porsche will campaign two 911 RSR at the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (2015 still the Tudor United SportsCar Championship).

The Porsche North America works squad will campaign two 911 RSR at the most important sports car race series in the USA and Canada. The season gets underway with the 24 Hours of Daytona on 30/31 January. In the 2014 Tudor United SportsCar Championship, Porsche claimed all three GT titles for the first time. Scoring overall victory at Petit Le Mans, the first in the history of this championship for a GT vehicle against significantly more powerful and lighter sports prototypes, the German manufacturer succeeded in its title defence at the final round of the 2015 season last Saturday on the storied Road Atlanta race track.

“The USA is the most important sports car market for Porsche,” says Porsche Head of Motorsport Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser. “We take on the challenge of defending the titles we won this year in the 2016 season and continue to trust the excellent work done by our race team Porsche North America." The season gets underway with the 24 Hours of Daytona on 30/31 January.
