CORE’s Road to Le Mans with Porsche

June 25, 2018

Here are all three videos from Michelin’s ‘Road to Le Mans’ series with Porsche GT Team’s North American race operations team partner, CORE autosport.

Porsche fielded four cars in the GTE-Pro category at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Two came from the Manthey Racing team and two from CORE autosport in the U.S. This marked the CORE team’s debut at Le Mans.

The U.S. cars ran in traditional Porsche GT liveries, while the international cars took on throwback liveries

You can see all three in one post, below.

Here are additional videos during the week posted to social media.

The CORE team returns back to the U.S. this weekend for the next round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at Watkins Glen International.

At Watkins Glen, Nick Tandy and Patrick Pilet are in the No. 911 Porsche 911 RSR while Laurens Vanthoor and Earl Bamber are in the No. 912 Porsche.

Tandy, Pilet and Bamber shared the No. 93 Porsche at Le Mans, while Vanthoor joined the No. 92 Porsche crew with Kevin Estre and Michael Christensen. That car won the GTE-Pro class there.

Porsche’s other North American car featured Romain Dumas, Timo Bernhard and Sven Mueller in the No. 94 car. That crew had a tough week, needing to build up a new chassis and retiring during the race.

Dumas spent this past weekend putting together a record run for VW and Michelin at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The record run was 16 seconds quicker than the previous mark.

The No. 93 car soldiered on to a 10th place finish in the 17-car GTE-Pro class.
