Porsche Wins Multiple Manufacturer Championships In GTLM & GTD of TUDOR Series

Porsche Tudor win

Porsche has clinched the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class championships in the inaugural season of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. By virtue of the GTLM class victory by the Team Falken Tire Porsche 911 RSR and the second-place finish by the No. 912 Porsche North America 911 RSR, the German marque secured the title at today’s 17th Annual Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia. A second-place finish by the Snow Racing Porsche 911 GT America in GT Daytona (GTD) class locked that category’s season-long manufacturer title.

The German marque also added to its cadre of endurance accolades by earning the hard-fought Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Championship (TPNAEC) Manufacturer Trophy. Following victories in the first two endurance races of the inaugural TUDOR Championship season at the Rolex 24 At Daytona and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, Porsche entered today’s 10-hour event with a slight lead.

After the No. 912 Porsche 911 RSR led today’s race at the four-hour mark, and the No. 17 Team Falken Tire Porsche was on point at eight-hours, the GT racing legend was able to lock the Manufacturer award even before the final checkered flag of the season. Drivers Patrick Long (Playa del Rey, California) and Michael Christensen (Denmark) won the TPNAEC GTLM Driver Title and secured the Team Championship for the Porsche North America.
