Porsche Esports Team and R8G Esports Team have unveiled the liveries for their cars competing in the first ever 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual (13-14 June 2020).
Porsche Esports Team is fielding a whopping four Porsche 911 RSRs in the GTE class at the first ever 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual. The cars’ liveries are a nod to the German manufacturer’s first victory at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1970, with the Porsche 917 K.
Here are the driver line-ups for the virtual event:
#91: André Lotterer/Neel Jani/Mitchell DeJong/Martti Pietilä
#92: Jaxon Evans/Matt Campbell/Mack Bakkum/Jeremy Bouteloup
#93: Nick Tandy/Ayhancan Güven/Joshua Rogers/Tommy Østgaard
#94: Patrick Pilet/Simona de Silvestro/Martin Krönke/David Williams
R8G Esports Team, owned by Formula One driver Romain Grosjean, has also taken the wraps off its #80 Corvette C7.R, another entry in the GTE class. It will be steered by Spaniard Daniel Juncadella, Swiss driver Matthias Beche (eight starts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, including one podium spot), and simracers Erhan Jajovski from Macedonia, and Risto Kappet from Estonia.

Don’t forget: 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual will take place on 13-14 June 2020, the date originally scheduled for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, now postponed to 19-20 September 2020 due to the international health crisis.
