Porsche has unveiled its liveries for next weekend’s virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans, with the four factory Porsche 911 RSRs set to pay homage to the German manufacturer’s first overall win in the endurance classic 50 years ago.
Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood took a Porsche 917 to victory in the race in 1970, with the liveries on the virtual race cars set to display a 1970 graphic, when seen from above, along with red and white relics from the Porsche KG Salzburg’s original livery.
Porsche will utilize a combination of real-life factory, Young Professional and Junior drivers alongside sim racers for the race, which will be contested on rFactor 2 on June 13-14.
Porsche Formula E drivers Andre Lotterer and Neel Jani will team up with sim racers Mitchell De Jong and Martti Pietilä in the No. 91 entry, with Jaxon Evans and Matt Campbell being joined by Mack Bakkum and Jeremy Bouteloup in the No. 92 car.
Reigning Tag Heuer Porsche Virtual Supercup champion Josh Rogers and Norwegian Tommy Ostgaard will be in the No. 93 entry alongside Nick Tandy and Porsche Junior Ayhancan Güven, who have both been taking part in recent IMSA iRacing Pro Series races.
The No. 94 Porsche, meanwhile, will be driven by Patrick Pilet, Simona de Silvestro, Martin Krönke and David Williams.
