“We are very pleased with how the testing has gone so far. Our goal is to be well prepared for the challenges of the very strong GTE class in the WEC and at Le Mans.” Kristen went on to say “Until the season kicks off in Silverstone, we will conduct some final tests on other race tracks so that our new 911 RSR is well and truly ready for the World Endurance Championship season”, said Harmut Kristen, the Porsche head of Motorsport.
