In the LMP2 and LMGTE Am classes of the World Endurance Championship (WEC), spectators can also cheer for Porsche vehicles: Both, with the Porsche 963 and the Porsche 911 RSR, further teams are entering the race.

In the LMP2 and LMGTE Am classes of the World Endurance Championship (WEC), spectators can also cheer for Porsche vehicles: Both, with the Porsche 963 and the Porsche 911 RSR, further teams are entering the race.

In the LMP2 class of the WEC, two customer teams are awaiting the start of their commitment: JOTA and Proton Competition have already professed their interest in a Porsche 963 as race vehicle. These teams will be joining the competition throughout the WEC races. Meanwhile, another six customer racing teams will be entering the grid with the Porsche 911 RSR. The teams Project 1 – AO, Dempsey-Proton and Proton Competition from Germany, the Iron Dames and Iron Lynx from Italy and GR Racing from Great Britain are already participating in the LMGTE Am class.

Beside the victories of the factory team, it is also the achievements of the customer racing teams that contribute to the success of the Porsche brand: It is the points of the customer teams that give Porsche a better chance for the manufacturer title.

The LMP2 teams will be participating with previous experience on the racetracks of the WEC. In the past ten years, the JOTA Team achieve ten spots on the podium in Le Mans in the past nine years, and in the LMP2 class at that. From 2023 onwards, the team is switching to the Porsche 963 as vehicle of choice. On the other hand, a well-known Porsche partner is the team Proton Competition, who have put their faith in Porsche GT vehicles on international racetracks since the day of their founding – turning the switch to a LMDh vehicle into the dawn of a new era for them.

The team surrounding Project 1 – AO has multiple years of experience with Porsche vehicles: Since 1993 the team has successfully participated in multiple seasons of Porsche One-Make Series. And in the very first year of their participation in the FIA WEC, they won the championship title of the LMGTE Am class in the season 2018–2019. Together with the newly founded AO Racing of the experienced drivers PJ Hyett, Sebastian Priaulx, Gunnar Jeannette and Harry Tincknell, this team is well-prepared for the races of the WEC.

Dempsey-Proton and Proton Competition share an organizational team, yet participate separately in the WEC. Particularly Dempsey-Proton have already celebrated several victories on the racetracks of the WEC: They were one of the most successful teams of the past season.

Similarly connected on an organizational level like Dempsey-Proton and Proton Competition are the teams Iron Lynx and the Iron Dames from Italy. While Iron Lynx has participated in various race series since 2017, the pure women’s squad Iron Dames have only been active since 2019, but received the support of the FIA Women in Motorsport Initiative. In 2022 they have participated in the FIA WEC for the first time and directly scored the third spot of the GTE Am class ranking. Meanwhile, Iron Lynx celebrated successes in 2021, particularly when they achieved the overall victory in the 24 Hours of Spa.

Since their founding, GR Racing is a race stable deeply intwined with the successes, vehicles, and drivers of Porsche Motorsport. Even back in 1970, Porsche along with GR Racing proved what their cooperation can achieve – together with the Gulf Porsche 917 and Porsche racing legend Jo Siffert.

The first event of the FIA World Endurance Championship is due in March: the Prologue of Sebring is taking place on March 11 and 12. This is where the first official vehicle tests of the WEC take place and the teams use this time to subject their vehicles to a first stress test.

The first race of the season takes place just a week after the Prologe, on March 17. The 1000 Miles of Sebring subject the participating teams to about 190 rounds on the Sebring International Raceway.

The season opening promises an exciting start. We wish everyone the best of luck!
