After the successful 2015 season when it took overall victory in Le Mans and won the constructors’ and drivers’ World Championship titles, Porsche finds itself in the role of the title defenders in 2016 – with new starting numbers.
Porsche has recognised outstanding achievements over the 2015 season at the Night of Champions motorsport gala in Weissach on Saturday. On this occasion, the Porsche CEO, Oliver Blume, provided the first prospects for the upcoming season.
All the six works drivers who have been competing regularly in the Porsche 919 Hybrid are going to race again in the 2016 FIA WEC. In the 24 hours of Le Mans Porsche will enter two instead of their recent three LMP1 cars.
