The Jury Special Grand Prize at this year’s Festival Automobile International has been attributed to Porsche for its record of 18 overall victories in Le Mans. To celebrate this award, six Le Mans winning drivers were gathered together.
At the wheel of his private Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Romain Dumas and his co-driver Gilles de Turckheim won the RGT class against strong opposition from factory teams at the season-opening round of the World Rally Championship.
Again in the 2016 season, the Porsche one make race series have lived up to their reputation as a talent hotbed for international GT motorsport. All four Porsche juniors will climb the career ladder next year.
Two world class drivers are about to drive forwards on a new road: From the end of the season, Romain Dumas and Marc Lieb leave the LMP1-Team and their seats in the 919 Hybrid Le Mans prototypes to begin new tasks at Porsche.
