Porsche And Penske Team Up For IMSA And WEC Effort

Photo: Michelin Racing USA Team Penske has been kicking butt in racing for decades, and for a lot of that time the team has been powered by Porsche. Way back in the 1960s Roger Penske himself was racing various four-cam Porsche prototype sports racing roadsters. By the 1970s, Penske and hired driver Mark Donohue were a global force, and their Porsche 917/30 became known as an all-conquering machine in the Can Am series.

Porsche 911 RSR Fastest In FIA WEC Pre-Season Testing At Spa

It's time for Porsche's factory endurance racing efforts to begin anew in 2021, as the company again partners with Manthey Racing for a two-car assault on the FIA WEC. Ahead of the season kicking off this weekend at the 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps, the series ran a two-day four-session test to get an idea of BOP and speed for the newly-updated cars. Every car in the series was represented, and Porsche kicked a whole lot of butt in the GTE categories with its long-serving 911 RSR. The two facto...

Your Favorite Porsche Drivers Tell The Story Behind Their Helmet Designs

Porsche has entered two 911 RSRs in the 2021 running of the FIA WEC series, both of which will be piloted by experienced racers including Neel Jani who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in 2016. Each driver has their own uniquely designed helmets that were inspired by multiple factors. A driver's helmet is an extension of their personality.

Inside The 2018 Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE

( = || []).push({}); Yes, like its road-going sibling from which it is derived, the 2018 Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE faces similar aesthetic, a-hem, issues. But this is a race car. A race car that will take part in the FIA World Endurance Championship next season. And, when it comes to racing, effectiveness counts more than aesthetics. It’s sort of like submachine guns.

Mark Webber’s journey beyond F1 takes him to brink of first world title

F1’s nearly man could win the FIA World Endurance Championship on Sunday. The Australian talks of his title hopes and his fears for the sport he left behindAs honest and straight-talking in print as he is in person, it is impossible not to feel for Mark Webber’s gut-wrenching sense of disappointment when, in his book, he describes how the Formula One world championship slipped from his grasp during 2010’s final race in Abu Dhabi. It was as close as he ever came in F1 but was not the end of his s...
