Actually, the race car from Weissach completed another successful test on Thursday on the Sebring International Raceway in Florida, USA. The German specialists will present the model for the first time in an official way at the WEC season-opener in Silverstone on the 14th of April.

The drivers that are sharing duties at Sebring were Porsche works drivers Richard Lietz from Austria and Partick Pilet from France. The frost one will compete in the Le Mans with Marc Lieb from Germany at the wheel of the Porsche 911 RSR with the starting number 92. The second one will competed together with Joerg Bergmeister from Germany in the number 91 vehicle. At the first two World Endurance Championship rounds in Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps as well at Le Mans, they receive backup from Romain Dumas and Timo Bernhard.
