Porsche back to Le Mans in 2023
LMDh. The endurance top class that will bring Porsche back to Le Mans.
News are widely spreading!! They are back! Porsche will make its return to the Endurance Top Class (Hypercar) with a LMDh prototype in 2023, coincidentally (or not!) the year of the 24 Hours of Le Mans centenary. For the first time in more than 20 years, it will be possible for Porsche to fight for overall victories with identical vehicles at endurance races around the world, like the 24h of Daytona.
These are really awesome news, I just can’t wait for it and I am sure that any Porsche fan, out there, is jumping for pure joy right now!!
In 2017, when the Porsche 919 Hybrid raced in Bahrain for the WEC and for the last time, those were grim times to say the least. Audi had already left the endurance top class and then Porsche would follow. For three years there was a huge void in the LMP1 class for sure.
Now, both German marques have announced their return to Le Mans and that is fantastic for the sport. Crossing fingers for more manufacturers to join Le Mans’ most high-cost effective programme ever! Rumour has it that there has been huge interest. 🤞
Keep the announcements wave coming because and it already feels like Christmas! 🤩🎄✨
