Sunday Drive Porsche Style

      With snow flying in almost all parts of the country, it was time for a Sunday drive in the snow. This drive appears to be in Colorado but it really could be in a variety of place. The white Porsche is now caked in road spray and dirt, but the whole series was a great look at snow, nature, and all the places you can take your Porsche. Where is your Sunday drive taking you?

Simple Porsche Keychains

      Porsche keychains are a great way to share your Pfanatic love without having to foot the bill of an actual Porsche. While not all keys look good on the ring, Porsche is the only one who really shines, it's okay enough to put your non-Porsche key on the ring. These keychains are very simple with a flashy Porsche crest. They come in multiple colors, as shown above, from classic black to a flashy yellow or green.

Porsche works drivers win the FIA World Endurance Championship drivers’ title

The new champions: Timo Bernhard, Brendon Hartley and Mark Webber

Stuttgart. Three characters, one title: By finishing fifth at the 6 Hours of Bahrain, the three Porsche works drivers Timo Bernhard (34, Germany), Brendon Hartley (26, New Zealand) and Mark Webber (39, Australia) have won the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship drivers’ title. Each of them is a top athlete in his own right – together they have been unbeatable. Since the 2014 season they have shared a Porsche 919 Hybrid. In 16 races they achieved six pole positions and four race wins. 

It is a varied trio: of them Timo is the most successful in endurance racing. A member of the Porsche family since 1999, he has won titles in all categories. Especially when the programme was in its infancy, it was up to him to guide the newcomers Brendon and Mark, who had just joined Porsche for the programme with the class one Le Mans prototype. Timo, Brendon and Mark have now won the first Drivers’ World Championship title in their careers. 

What the World Champions say: 

Timo Bernhard: “Winning the FIA World Endurance Drivers’ Championship today is an exceptional moment for me and truly the icing on the cake. It was great seeing the team winning in Le Mans and clinching the one-two with our second place. The Manufacturers’ Championship for Porsche was another highlight for me. And now Brendon, Mark and myself even won the drivers’ title. I owe Porsche so much. It was Porsche who gave me the chance to be a professional racing driver. Together we have celebrated so many successes in different categories of motor racing. To secure the drivers’ title is incredible. I have Porsche in my heart, this is the brand I am living for. Today a dream has come true.”

Brendon Hartley: “I am very, very proud. My earliest memories are watching my father at the racetrack. I was six years old when I started racing go-karts and always dreamt of being a World Champion. I am extremely proud of sharing this moment with Mark, Timo and the entire Porsche Team. A big thanks to the guys at the computers behind the pits, the mechanics fixing the car in the box, the crew of car number 18, who did an incredible race to take the victory. And, of course, to Mark and Timo. We were all managing issues on the track. Every single person in the Porsche Team contributed to this. I will never forget this day, I am very proud!”

Mark Webber: “It’s the first World Championship for me – this feels beautiful. That’s not an easy thing to achieve, so to have won this title is very special. But to win it wearing a Porsche suit is even more special to me. The last time Porsche won this Championship was 29 years ago with Derek Bell.”

The World Champions at a glance:

Timo Bernhard…
... has won every major sports car endurance competition: Le Mans, Daytona, Sebring, he has even won the 24-hour race in the Nürburgring outright no less than five times. Before becoming a World Champion, he had gained major international recognition after overall victory in Le Mans in 2010, which he won with Romain Dumas and Mike Rockenfeller for Audi. Back then he was out on loan from Porsche to its group partner.

Timo is the most senior Porsche works driver. He began his successful Porsche career in 1999 as a Junior and, to date, is the only works driver to become a champion in all the categories in which Porsche participates: In 2001 he won the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany, in 2004 the GT title in the American Le Mans Series and in 2007 and 2008 he was LMP2 champion in that series in a Porsche RS Spyder. In his leisure time he is involved in rallying. In 2013 he won an event in the German rally championship in a 911 GT3 near his home region. In 2014 he went on to win the Homburger ADAC hill climb – once again in a 911 GT3 Cup and on home ground. In the same year Bernhard succeeded in winning the Rallye Baden-Württemberg, which was part of the ADAC Rallye Masters-Championship. Also at home is “Team 75 Bernhard”, which is managed by his father Rüdiger. Despite all his international successes, Timo keeps his feet firmly on the ground. In 2013 he and his wife Katharina became proud parents of little Paul.

Timo experienced the tough beginning of the LMP1 programme, and drove the first 919 Hybrid on 12th June 2013 at the roll out. “An honour,” he said, and explained: “This was not just a new Le Mans racing car, it was a Porsche." 
He reminisced: “When I drove my very first company car in the village there were children standing around. I couldn't hear them, but I could see by their mouths what they were saying: It's a Porsche!"

Brendon Hartley…
… started with go-karts at the age of six, inspired by his father Bryan and his older brother Nelson, named after Nelson Piquet. Back home in New Zealand – Brendon Hartley grew up in Palmerston North on the North Island – he launched into formula racing. After a series of wins in Formula Ford and further successes, it was soon evident he had the talent to make a career out of it, but lived at the wrong side of the world. At the age of 16 he jumped in at the deep end – moved to Europe. He took up residence in the east of Germany and raced in a Formula Renault 2.0 in the German and European Championships. In 2007 he won the World Series by Renault. That was a defining time for him in a foreign country. He joined the Red Bull talent pool and worked hard. 

Then he had a coup de main in 2008 at the Formula 3 Grand Prix in Macau: started 20th on the grid, finished third, including fastest lap. He was still taken by complete surprise when the phone call came from Red Bull, asking if he could stand in for the injured Mark Webber at a Formula One test. “Wow, this was what I had been working for all my life. I phoned home straight away and let it ring until I had woken my whole family.” He did well and moved from Germany to Milton Keynes in the UK, and it at least gave him the chance to live somewhere where they spoke his language.

He had a Formula One contract up to and including 2013 – first as a test driver for Red Bull Racing, and then for the Mercedes Team. His simulator work was highly regarded, but a racing driver has to race. In 2012 he started his second career in endurance racing: European Le Mans Series, Grand Am, 12 hours in Bathurst, 24 hours in Daytona and Le Mans. “My goal and hope was that one day I would attract the attention of a manufacturer. The fact that it was Porsche, the most successful brand at Le Mans – it’s a dream come true.”

Mark Webber…
… has had a roof over his head for two years now, but its been a car he has had to share with two others. After 215 Formula One Grands Prix, and winning nine of them, he left the F1 paddock at the end of 2013. Sharing the Porsche 919 Hybrid with two other drivers requires compromises for seats, pedal systems and set-up. It is vital and beneficial that the better a driver feels, the faster he will be, and in that context they certainly take good care of each other. “I surprised myself by how much I enjoyed sharing after a short period of familiarisation,” he said. 

Mark left his home in Queanbeyan in New South Wales, Australia, at the age of 19. In England he was one of many of those without a sponsor. He won the prestigious Formula Ford Festival in Brands Hatch, drove Formula 3 and Formula 3000. He was invited to join the sports car programme at Mercedes. In Le Mans the car became airborne. Mark survived two dramatic crashes unharmed, but his career seemed to have run out of steam. The page turned, however, with a successful Formula One test for the Benetton team, which secured him a test and reserve driver position with the team in 2001. In 2002 he started his first Grand Prix and finished fifth in Melbourne – with an uncompetitive Minardi. 

In 2005 he scored his first podium with the former BMW WilliamsF1 team. He had his first F1 win at the 2009 German Grand Prix with Red Bull Racing in his 131st race. In 2010 and 2012 he won the Monaco Grand Prix.
In 2014 he returned to Le Mans, was leading the race for some time, but retired with engine failure with two hours to go. In 2015 the car he was sharing with Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley was leading for an even longer period, but dropped back after a penalty and came second behind the winning sister Porsche 919 Hybrid. This is what Mark calls “unfinished business“. After the 2015 World Championship title he wants the Le Mans win in 2016 – in a Porsche. “To me this brand means highly developed sports cars that make the grade without being overstated – perfect for everywhere and in every scenario.” Being the private owner of 918 Spyder, a 911 GT2 RS and a GT3 RS 4.0, he is well prepared.

Porsche of the Week

      This week's Porsche of the week is a Porche 911 T 2.0 Targa. The body color appears to be custom, but it may have been an upgrade at the dealership at the time. The roof is retracted, the hood and rear are open, and this Porsche is just looking stunning. What a beautiful Porsche.

World Endurance Championship, round 8 in Sakhir/Bahrain – Race GT

Brilliant season finale for Porsche – fourth win and three championship titles

Stuttgart. What an end to the season for Porsche in the Sports Car World Championship WEC (World Endurance Championship): On Saturday at the six-hour race in Bahrain, the Porsche 911 RSR driven by Frenchmen Frédéric Makowiecki and Patrick Pilet not only scored the fourth GTE-Pro class win of the season – Porsche also netted three championship titles with the 470 hp winning racer from Weissach, which is based on the iconic 911 sports car. 

With this victory at the Bahrain International Circuit, Porsche overtook Ferarri in the manufacturers’ classification. The Porsche Manthey squad secured the team championship, and Porsche works driver Richard Lietz convincingly defended his title in the FIA World Endurance Cup for Drivers. Fifth place at today’s race with his teammate Michael Christensen from Denmark was enough for the Austrian to secure this honour. With this, Porsche continues on its winning path after also scoring three GT titles at this season’s North American Tudor United SportsCar Championship. 

The success on the Grand Prix circuit in the desert, a racetrack known to put extreme stresses on the tyres, was also a race for strategists. The tactic of not going all-out in qualifying to clinch pole position but instead to concentrate on preparing for the race and save a fresh set of tyres also worked perfectly at this season finale. Patrick Pilet took up the race from the fifth grid spot and immediately put the GT-class frontrunners under pressure. Third place after one lap, second after two – and after eleven laps he had taken the lead. Putting in a strong drive and clocking consistently fast lap times, the champion of the Tudor United SportsCar Championship and his teammate Frédéric Makowiecki fended off repeated attacks from their rivals over the rest of the race. At the flag, the duo held a comfortable lead of almost 40 seconds. 

In the sister 911 RSR fielded by the Porsche Manthey team, start driver Michael Christensen and his teammate Richard Lietz, who have notched up victories this season at the Nürburgring, in Austin and Shanghai, initially took things a little cautiously. In the first half of the race they kept out of any trouble, with the plan of catching the leading group at nightfall. But right to the end they held back from taking unnecessary risks, and were satisfied with fifth place, which secured Porsche all three GT championship titles. 

With two podium spots in the GTE-Am class, Porsche customer teams also celebrated a successful season finale. Klaus Bachler (Austria), Khaled Al Qubaisi (Abu Dhabi) and Marco Mapelli (Italy) saw the flag in second place with their 911 RSR campaigned by Abu Dhabi Proton Racing. For Dempsey Proton Racing, Patrick Long (USA), Christian Ried (Germany) and Marco Seefried (Germany) finished third. This season, the squad with US actor and racing driver Patrick Dempsey in the cockpit, won the race at Fuji and finished second at the Le Mans 24-hour race. Due to filming commitments in Great Britain, Patrick Dempsey was unable to compete in Bahrain. 

Comments on the race
Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Head of Porsche Motorsport: “We fought hard and gave our utmost. And we were rewarded for this with three titles. Richard Lietz is a worthy champion, and the team definitely deserves the title, too. Ultimately, our strong catch-up campaign after Le Mans with four victories tipped the scales for us. We never gave up and we deserved to win. Right to the end, we benefitted from our consistency. Our pit stops were perfect, the drivers didn’t make any mistakes. The WEC is a fantastic arena for an automobile manufacturer. The fight against Ferrari was incredibly gripping – for fans it couldn’t have been better.” 

Richard Lietz (911 RSR #91): “It wasn’t just a thrilling race, the whole week was full-on. Many thought, because of my points’ lead, I could just coast along and bring home the title. But today was six hours of pressure; a nonstop fight against cars in all classes. After all, championship titles were at stake for many and therefore they didn’t hold back. Our strategy worked. Patrick and Fred went for victory in their 911 RSR, we erred on the side of caution. Porsche did everything right today. I’m proud to be part of this team.” 

Michael Christensen (911 RSR #91): “To claim three titles is certainly more than we’d expected at the start of the season. But we gave our utmost as a team at every race, never stopped fighting and we coped with all the setbacks. And that’s why we’re standing here today as champions. Of course, we didn’t tackle the race too aggressively; there was simply too much at stake. That was the right tactic. We have achieved what we set out to do at the season finale.”

Patrick Pilet (911 RSR #92): “A perfect day for Porsche. Our strategy to save a fresh set of tyres in qualifying is a complete success. That was the key to our victory today. Congratulations to Richard on becoming champion. He definitely deserves it. I would like to thank the drivers from Aston Martin and Ferrari for the great season. We fought really hard at every race, but it was always fair. That’s how motor racing should be.” 

Frédéric Makowiecki (911 RSR #92): “We had to wait for our first win of the season until the very last race. But it was worth it. Before the start, I said to Patrick that on no account did I want to go home without a victory. The year was not easy for us. We took a while to get where we wanted to be. But we fought at all times and therefore deserve this success.”

Porsche Racing Sketch

      A Porsche 917 sketch was posted when this Tumblr user reached 500 followers. The sketch or drawing is in color, looks like mixed media of some sort. The blue and oranges are dead on for the racing kit, and the thick black of the wheels and edging gives a very unique feel to the piece. There's some feeling of forward motion when I look at the car, and it feels very race day without being too detailed.

Porsche wins the drivers’ world championship title

FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), LMP1, Round 8, Sakhir (Bahrain), Race

Stuttgart. Porsche has concluded the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in Bahrain by taking the sixth consecutive race win and the second title this year. For Timo Bernhard (DE), Brendon Hartley (NZ) and Mark Webber (AUS) fifth place in the six-hour race was enough to win the drivers’ world championship. Romain Dumas (FR), Neel Jani (CH) and Marc Lieb (DE) took their long awaited first race win this season with the second Porsche 919 Hybrid.

The eighth and final WEC round was a thriller, and this also applied to the drivers’ championship battle. Bernhard/Hartley/Webber had started with a 13-point lead ahead of the best placed Audi trio. Given the great season Porsche had had so far with the Le Mans victory and the early win of the manufacturers’ title, it looked possible to win the drivers’ title in Bahrain. But half an hour into the race the number 17 car had to come into the pits for a long repair stop. After that the trio had to go flat out to catch up from the very back of the pack, and eventually they finished fifth. It was the sister car that took the lead and the crucial points away from the Audi. 

How the race went for car number 17:
Start driver Timo defends the lead up to lap 16. On lap 17, nearly half an hour into the race, he radios in that he has a loss of engine power and pits. The mechanics fix an engine actuator problem in 8 minutes 43 seconds. Timo rejoins the race four and a half laps behind the leader. The leader had completed 52 laps when Timo comes in for his first planned stop, still four laps behind but back in the top ten in the 32 car field. Brendon takes over the big job of catching up on fresh tyres. After 83 race laps – 79 for his car – he comes in for fuel and tyres and remains in the car. At the end of lap 114 (110 for car number 17) Brendon hands over to Mark Webber, who continues in fifth because the number 8 Audi has had a long stop for repairs. He pits for fuel and fresh tyres after 144 laps. After race lap 158 (154 for the car) Mark is called in for another unscheduled pit stop with an actuator problem. He rejoins the race without losing a position. After 183 laps he has his final splash and dash, before he crosses the line in fifth – and becomes world champion. 

How the race went for car number 18:
Romain Dumas stays second behind the leading sister car for the first nine laps. On lap ten he is overtaken by the number 8 Audi. When the Porsche teammates have their long repair stop, Romain moves back into P2 and takes the lead when the Audi refuels. After 29 laps Romain comes in for fuel and tyres, and stays in the car. After 59 laps he hands the car over to Marc Lieb, who gets fresh rubber again after 89 laps. At a restart after a full course yellow on lap 100, Marc manages to outpace the number 7 Audi but drops back again. The following thrilling duel ends with Lieb taking the lead. On lap 119 the rivals both use a full course yellow to pit for a driver change. Neel Jani takes over the leading Porsche. He refuels and picks up fresh tyres after 147 laps. His last pit stop is after 176 laps, and after 199 laps he takes the long awaited first race win this season. 

Quotes after the race:

Fritz Enzinger, Vice President LMP1: “This was no race for the nervous. Because of the issues we had with car number 17, we found ourselves in new situations all the time. You cannot imagine better team-work after the number 18 crew had handed the number 17 crew the title by winning the race. The one hundred per cent qualifying result over the season, winning all the races since Le Mans, is an amazing success. Thanks to Porsche, thanks to the Weissach team and the crew here at the track. I’m terribly proud of the team, which has grown together. It is the greatest pleasure to work with them.”

Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: “What a race! Congratulations firstly to Timo Bernhard, Brendon Hartley and Mark Webber for their well deserved world championship title. We experienced a very difficult race today. But again we were able to show that we can cope with it. After a perfect season this is the icing on the cake. Thanks to the team here and at home and to all our technical partners and sponsors, who have supported us right from the beginning of this programme and who deserve a big share of this success. From tomorrow on the new season starts.”

Drivers Porsche 919 Hybrid number 17
Timo Bernhard (34, Germany): “I had a super start and was able create a gap between myself and the rest of the field. But about half way through the first stint the engine wouldn’t go on throttle anymore. The mechanics did a great job in repairing this so quickly, many thanks for that! I was able to catch up and it went quite well. After the repair it was all about staying cool and keeping fighting. We knew we had the speed. It was an intense race to wrap up an intense season.”

Brendon Hartley (25, New Zealand): “I drove two clean stints driving flat out and trying to catch the two Toyotas, and at that moment we knew every second could be crucial. The boys in the pits did a fantastic job to get us out again and, of course, it was absolutely crucial that our sister number 18 car stayed in the lead. A true team effort! Incredible!” 

Mark Webber (39, Australia): “Today clearly shows the qualities of the team. We have had some very smooth days this year, but we executed the victories with clinical precision. Today was about fighting as hard as possible. You saw the spirit of the mechanics; you saw the spirit of the drivers. I cannot thank the mechanics enough. The pit stops we had in the garage were extremely stressful. It’s amazing that we were able to win the world championship under pressure like this. I am so proud to be world champion with Timo and Brendon and with Porsche. It was 1986 when Derek Bell managed this the last time. It was a massive day for the team! 

Drivers Porsche 919 Hybrid number 18
Romain Dumas (37, France): “I was in the car for the first two hours and it was very, very difficult. We had issues with the brake performance and struggled a lot for various reasons. But I was hoping it would get better in cooler temperatures later in the race.”

Neel Jani (31, Switzerland): "For us three this race win was overdue. We have been in P1 so often, but didn’t get the victory laurels for various reasons. It was a great relief to finally get it today. I was able to manage my speed and get home safely in the lead without taking risks.”

Marc Lieb (35, Germany): “On my first stint the car wasn’t as good as I had hoped it would be. The tyres were on the limit, and I also lost some time on the first laps when the traffic was really heavy. But once I found my rhythm it was all okay, and my second stint was great with the car performing very well. The battle with the Audi was tough but good fun. He was on new tyres, and I was on old ones. That’s why the opportunities were not great, but then my car improved and his got worse, so I was able to pass him and take the lead.”
