Porsche 911 RSR to appear at the FIA WEC

JonathanApril 10, 2013

The new Porsche 911 ‘Type 991’ RSR race car will make its competition debut this weekend at the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).

Silverstone in Northamptonshire will host the WEC, a six hour race kicking off on Sunday, April 14th. Thousands of car enthusiasts are expected to attend the event.

The debut comes at an appropriate time, when the German car maker celebrates the 50 year anniversary of the Porsche 911. To date, more than 820,000 Porsche 911s have been built, making it the most successful sports car in the world. The model has long been considered the heart, soul and pride of the Porsche brand – a car maker widely renowned for its advanced technology and innovative ideas.

Hartmut Kristen, head of Porsche Motorsport, said: “The whole team is ready and raring to tackle the first race with the 911 RSR. Our squad has worked extremely hard over the last months to make our new car competitive right from the start”.

Porsche have won over 28,000 races worldwide. Its international victories span across nearly every motor sports series.

The Porsche driving team are already gearing up for the WEC. Joerg Bergmeister said: “I’m looking forward to my premiere in the WEC – in the most beautiful and spectacular 911 ever”.

The Porsche Cayman Coupe is also available through UK Carline, for £802.42 per month. This model is even more powerful, taking only 5.2 seconds to get up to 62 MPH. Treat yourself to this car leasing deal to feel like you’re a part of the action this weekend.
