Following over 10 years away Porsche are returning to the LMP1 Class of the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2014 including the mighty 24 hours of Le Mans. Porsche have a great ethos towards sports cars and racing, even after their 16 previous victories they are still starting from the ground up developing their new cars chasing perfection.
Formula One top driver Mark Webber has been confirmed as one of the drivers for Porsche’s LMP1 campaign in the 2014 World Endurance Championship and the event’s highlight, the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The Australian has signed a multi-year contract with Porsche which means he will no longer be racing in F1 from next year onwards. Competing in the new LMP1 car alongside Webber are the two long-standing Porsche works drivers Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas as well as former F1 test driver Neel Jani, who was also confirmed as part of the squad today.
