Followed by police escort, and drove two Le Mans prototypes from Porsche’s research and development centre in Weissach to the Museum in Zuffenhausen.

 

 

Former World Endurance Champion Mark Webber was at the wheel of the 919 Evo that Neel Jani broke Formula One’s qualifying record at Spa-Francorchamps in April 2018 and Timo Bernhard set an absolute track record at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in June.

 

“It was kind of crazy but fun to handle the beast in public traffic in Germany. It’s typical of Porsche to try to manage something cool like this”, said Webber of the twenty-five kilometre stretch from the development centre to the 919’s final resting place.

 

“The 919 and the years in the FIA World Endurance Championship mean a lot to me. It was an honour to bring the 919 Evo home now.”

 

2017 Le Mans winner Marc Lieb tailed Webber in the second Hybrid in the spec it used to race in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

 

 

“Today’s drive was a very nice finale for Porsche, the 919 and for me personally,” said Lieb.

 

“Every day I take parts of this route from my house in Ludwigsburg to get to work in the Weissach office. Being in my Cayenne, from now on I will always remember how it looked from the 919’s much lower seat position.”
