At the Weissach Motorsport Centre, preparations for the running of the new Porsche LMP1 sports prototype at the Le Mans 24 Hours and in the sports car World Endurance Championship are progressing at high revs. For this feat the infrastructure was considerably expanded. A new workshop building and an office complex have been completed.
“The first rollout of our new Porsche LMP1 car is planned for mid-2013,” announced Wolfgang Hatz, Porsche AG Board of Management Member for Research and Development, on Saturday on the occasion of the end of season “Night of Champions” celebration. “The car will be run by our own works team based here at Weissach.”
Following a re-structuring, the LMP1 project is realized by a new department headed by Fritz Enzinger. With his well established organizational structure, Porsche’s Head of Motorsport Hartmut Kristen continues to be responsibility for all other motorsport programs worldwide.
