As the Porsche 911 RSR rolls on to the grid at Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) on May 5, 2018, it begins its second season in the FIA Sports Car World Endurance Championship. The model has already notched up two race wins in North America, as well as the North American Endurance Cup (NAEC), which includes the prestigious endurance races at Daytona, Sebring, Watkins Glen and Road Atlanta. However, there is one thing still missing from resume of the most sophisticated 911 ever: a world championship title. Exactly one year later, at the penultimate round of the 2018/2019 Super Season, this major goal is ticked off. 

Scoring positions third and eighth from the six-hour race at Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium), Porsche has claimed an early world championship title win in the GTE-Pro class of the World Endurance Championship WEC. Now with 246 points, the sports car manufacturer from Weissach heads to the final round of the 2018/2019 Super Season at Le Mans holding an unassailable lead in the manufacturers’ championship.
