Retro Brumos Racing Team Porsche
For the 2019 Rolex 24 of Daytona, Porsche set a decision to go retro. This retro Porsche wears a white Brumos livery paint job. Furthermore, this paint design includes red and blue stripes. These stripes were worn by Porsche racing vehicles during the second half of the 20th century. This is a commemorative design towards their historic racing career. The retro Porsches are both 911 RSR models, with numbers “911” and “912”. Both vehicles also sport #59, the long-term number of Porsche in racing history. By using this setup, Porsche is appreciating the past with an attempt to win the Rolex 24.
Who’s Driving for Porsche?
The retro Porsche 911 RSR “911” and “912” already hit the track at Daytona. The question is, who was driving? Well, let’s take a look. Firstly, the “911” Porsche retro includes Nick Tandy, Patrick Pilet, and Fred Mackowiecki. Secondly, the “912” Porsche also has three drivers: Earl Bamber, Laurens Vanthoor, and Mathieu Jaminet. With these drivers, Porsche was aiming to claim a 23rd victory at Daytona. And, correct, Porsche has 22 current wins at Daytona since beginning their racing career. That is quite a number of victories at one track!
Intense 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona
The retro Porsche “911” and “912” 911 RSR models were ready to go. During the event, Porsche did their best in an attempt to win. And, furthermore, this time it was with stunning classic style. Unfortunately, a BMW takes the lead and obtains the victory. Regardless, it was a good attempt by all manufacturers. We’ll see what happens next year!
On a historical note, the first time Brumos Racing Team partook in an event is also the first time Porsche raced outside of Europe. Now, Porsche races worldwide on any continent without hesitation. Although many top manufacturers did well at the Rolex 24, let’s tip a hat to Porsche. Porsche is an amazing company with top quality engineering. Good luck to Porsche at the 2020 Rolex 24 of Daytona!
