From 13 to 16 March, the GT teams of the sports car manufacturer from Weissach field four works vehicles in two long-distance races at Sebring.
Two of the Porsche 911 RSR will race over more than 1,000 miles (1,609km) at round six of the Sports Car World Endurance Championship WEC, with another two identical vehicle models tackling the 12-hour IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race. The so-called #SuperSebring race weekend requires a massive effort from Porsche in terms of personnel and logistics - comparable to Porsche's largest ever GT mission at Le Mans in 2018.
"The Sebring weekend is a massive undertaking for Porsche Motorsport. We have to transport our entire WEC crew including the cars and all the equipment over the Atlantic. That alone presents a logistical challenge," says Fritz Enzinger, Vice President of Motorsport. "On top of this, our IMSA team competes at the same location on the same weekend. Two factory cars have to tackle each of these two important endurance races successfully. Everything has to be right."
The Sebring weekend also serves as preparation for this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans, where Porsche will again field four works cars against five other manufacturers in the fiercely competitive GTE-Pro category.
