Before the eyes of the entire Board of Porsche AG, Porsche works driver Timo Bernhard took his new 'wheels' through its initial function check.

The LMP1 racer turned its first laps on the circuit several weeks earlier than originally planned. "We are well on schedule," says Fritz Enzinger, Head of LMP1. "Our newly formed team has worked with utmost concentration on getting this highly complex vehicle on the track as soon as possible. This allows us a few additional weeks for more testing and further development. From 2014, the regulations are primarily based on efficiency. This makes the competition amongst engineers more interesting and presents us with completely new challenges."

Since the decision in mid-2011 to return with the LMP1 racer to top motorsport as a works effort, the Motorsport Centre at Weissach has grown significantly. A workshop and an administration building were built and accommodate around 200 employees who are responsible for the design, assembly and deployment of the LMP1 car. From the 2014 season, the racer will be fielded by a Weissach-based works squad.
