For one last round of the 911 RSR: the racetrack Bahrain International Circuit.

For one last round of the 911 RSR: the racetrack Bahrain International Circuit.

On November 12, the Porsche works drivers will start their two 911 RSRs in the WEC for the last time. The 62nd race on the Bahrain International Circuit will mark the end of the works involvement in the GTE-Pro class.


Before the checkered flag drops, the drivers must master a truly challenging racetrack: Hermann Tilke, a civil engineer from Aachen, Germany, has designed a varied as well as challenging circuit that adapts to the hilly conditions of the Sakhir desert. The artificially created differences in altitude on the circuit are characteristic. The maximum incline of the racetrack is 3.6%, the maximum decline 5.6%.

The asphalt strip in the middle of the Bahrain desert stretches over a total of 5.412 kilometers and awaits the drivers with a total of 15 turns and high-speed sections. The drivers must master nine right and six left turns. And they need to do so over a varied circuit, through slow and fast passages, high-speed straights, medium-fast as well as smooth curves.


The heat and the sand that keeps blowing onto the desert track are a special challenge for drivers and material. You have to keep control in the corners, but still fight for the best places. The tires and engines are therefore put under enormous strain.


This combination makes the Bahrain International Circuit a major challenge for the whole team.

Fans can look forward to a thrilling last race with the 911 RSR in the GTE-Pro class.
