    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    So... we meet up at Le Mans in 2014? What a surprise, didn´t see that coming for the foreseeable future. What happens to the diesel regulations then, if I recall correctly Audi is considering a move to WRC racing?


    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    I have already started packing! We will definitely meet my friend! I am looking forward to it. (I have to take the wife to Rome first for a few days...she has a thing about Rome).

    Regs are changing, but it is still unclear.

    Here is what was talked about in a June 2010 meeting: www.mulsannescorner.com/newsjuly10.html

    Go to "7.19.10"

    I'm trying to find more news!

    “Motorsport was always an essential part of the Porsche brand,” emphasises Matthias Müller, President of the Executive Board at Porsche AG. “So for us it was only a matter of time before we returned as a factory to the top league of racing. Porsche’s successes in Le Mans are unrivalled. We want to follow up on this with the 17th outright victory.”

    It's funny! When I read Hatz's comments after the 24h Nurburgring, I had a funny feeling.....

    Porsche has made me sooooo happy!


    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    Thanks for the link, mate! I do like the new regulations based on the amount of energy supplied to the car from outside. That might´ve been the essential aspect of Porsche´s return.

    This morning I was looking at this site when I came across this: www.mulsannescorner.com/newsmay11.html

     

    Go to 6.3.11

     

    This is the car that Porsche never admitted actually existed. This is the baby that WW sold out to so that the Cayenne could get built. It was also rumored that the Audi guys had a "good look" around this car before rolling out their R8 LMP car.

    Porsche returns to Le Mans in 2014 Development programme confirmed for LMP1 sports prototype

    Stuttgart. Porsche returns to Le Mans with a works-run LMP1 sports prototype. The first outing of the completely new developed race car is planned for the year 2014. With 16 overall victories, Porsche is the most successful manufacturer in Le Mans. The most recent win was in 1998 with the Porsche 911 GT1.

    [+]

    “Motorsport was always an essential part of the Porsche brand,” emphasises Matthias Müller, President of the Executive Board at Porsche AG. “So for us it was only a matter of time before we returned as a factory to the top league of racing. Porsche’s successes in Le Mans are unrivalled. We want to follow up on this with the 17th outright victory.”

    [+]

    With the RS Spyder sports prototype that was run with great success from 2006 to 2008 by the factory-backed Penske Racing team in the USA and to 2010 by several customer teams worldwide, Porsche has set the benchmark recently in the LMP2 category. “With the RS Spyder we proved that our motorsport engineers in Weissach are at the forefront,” says Wolfgang Hatz, Board Member for Research and Development at Porsche AG. “For instance, we were the first to run a high-revving race engine with direct fuel injection, DFI, setting new standards in performance and efficiency. Recently, with the 911 GT3 R Hybrid, we adopted a completely new drive technology for racing purposes and achieved a considerable reduction in consumption.”

    [+]
    [+]

    Hartmut Kristen, Head of Porsche Motorsport, is already prepared for one of the most challenging development programmes in the company’s history. “We’re looking forward to the task of developing new technologies and to continue on with the success of the Porsche RS Spyder. After the conclusion of our works-supported sports prototype programme in the American Le Mans Series we have kept up with the latest technological advances. Now we will begin with detailed research in order to evaluate the various concept alternatives for our new car. These obviously depend on how the regulations for the year 2014 look in detail. In principle, these regulations are interesting for us because the integration of our hybrid technology in the vehicle concept is one possible option.”

    [+]
    [+]

    Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood claimed the first overall victory for Porsche in 1970 with the legendary 917 short-tail. The 16th and by now last overall win was secured by Laurent Aiello, Stéphane Ortelli and Allan McNish in 1998 with the
    911 GT1. In the years 2008 and 2009, the Porsche RS Spyder sports prototype won the title in the LMP2 category.

    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    So , now that I have calmed down a bit I can start thinking.

    If Porsche are talking about going to Le Mans 2014, then the car will need to be ready way before. They will most probably enter it at Sebring (a very tough race that is used for preparation for Le Mans) which is in early 2014 (March). In order to this, the car needs to be tested privately first on various tracks. This means we could get to see the car by January 2014 (maybe late 2013). So we have about 2 and half years to wait.

    BEST DAY EVER!!!!!! What great news. Also interesting is that black prototype posted in the link.

     Audi Sport Statement on Porsche’s Le Mans return

    “This is the decision of Porsche company, a decision in which Audi is not involved. Audi relishes the prospect of every strong new opponent at Le Mans and in the new FIA Sportscar World Championship. Porsche’s entry into the LMP1 class is evidence of the high level of attraction of sport prototypes”.

    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    I predict it will be a hybrid (rules permitting) and that Audi will retire from LMP1 at the end of 2013......

    By the looks of things, we may need to organize a Rennteam meeting at Le Mans in 2014.

    Yes, you are right, but you know which one I would have preferredSmiley


    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    Red Bull as the main sponsor? I read an article about Le Mans and Dr. Marko in 'christophorus'. Coincidence?

    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    You may be onto something! Red Bull are also pulling out of their NASCAR sponsorship, so maybe channeling those funds to the Porsche LMP1 program. That would be a very nice match.
