WeatherTech Racing’s Porsche 911 RSR-19 has broken cover ahead of this weekend’s Roar Before the Rolex 24.

The GT Le Mans class Porsche — run by Proton Competition — will carry the same red, white and blue colors seen on the brand’s Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020 in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship last year.

Silver-rated Cooper MacNeil is set for a full-season campaign in the Proton-owned RSR-19 alongside a rotating cast of Porsche factory drivers.

Gianmaria Bruni, Richard Lietz and Kevin Estre will join MacNeil for the Roar and season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona on Jan. 30-31.

The No. 79 entry is one of six cars entered in GTLM for the Florida endurance classic and alongside Corvette Racing as the only confirmed full-time entries in the class.
