Porsche has revealed the livery that its two factory 911 RSRs will carry in this weekend’s TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona.
The German manufacturer, which debuts the latest evolution of its GTE-spec contender on U.S. soil, will field a pair of entries for drivers Nick Tandy, Patrick Pilet and Richard Lietz (No. 911) and Joerg Bergmeister, Patrick Long and Michael Christensen (No. 912).
The cars will carry Porsche’s new slogan, “Mission 2014. Our Return” on the roof and doors as the CORE autosport-run squad seeks victory in the GTLM class.
“As the first race of the inaugural TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, the 24 Hours of Daytona is in the limelight more than ever,” said Head of Porsche Motorsport Hartmut Kristen. “Sports car fans around the world can’t wait to see how the drivers and teams do at this timeless classic, and how the new race series gets off the mark.
“This race marks a new era for Porsche. In the Tudor United SportsCar Championship, a works team competes in U.S. sports car racing under the flag of Porsche North America for the first time.”
