Porsche Motorsport announces FIA WEC line-up


Porsche Motorsport will be returning to the FIA World Endurance Championship as a factory team this year following a one year absence..

Two brand new Porsche 911 RSRs will be competing in the demanding GTE-Pro class under the Porsche GT Team banner. Once again, Manthey Racing will be the team in charge of running the cars from Stuttgart.

Now the German brand has announced its driver line-up for the FIA WEC and it looks really strong.

The #91 Porsche 911 RSR will be driven by Richard Lietz, the 2015 GTE-Pro champion, and Frederic Makowiecki.

The sister #92 machine will be in the hands of Michael Christensen and Kevin Estre. The latter is also racing for Porsche in IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
