Porsche has confirmed Philipp Eng and Nick Catsburg for the FIA WEC Rookie Test at Bahrain later this month. The two drivers will drive the Porsche 911 RSR a day after the FIA World Endurance Championship season finale.

Eng will get the chance to test with the factory 911 RSR after winning the 2015 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, with Catsburg testing the car ahead of his Porsche debut in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship debut with Black Swan Racing next year.

Both drivers will get the opportunity to drive the 911 RSR on Sunday, Nov. 22.

“[I’m] Super excited about this! Looking forward to be testing the Porsche 991 RSR at the WEC rookie test in Bahrain,” Eng stated on his Twitter account.

“I’m excited to be given this opportunity. It will be my first test in a Porsche. The car really performed well this season and my expectations are high. It’s a great way to start working with Porsche ahead of the 2016 season,” Catsburg told Sportscar365.
