Manthey’s partnership with Porsche pre-dates the FIA WEC, the team notably scoring multiple Nurburgring 24 Hours wins before running as the factory Porsche team in the FIA WEC’s GTE Pro class in the 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018/19 seasons.
This season has been particularly successful for Manthey’s Porsche GTE effort, the team winning the GTE Pro class at the Le Mans 24 Hours, and Fuji. The #92 Porsche leads the class points standings, and Porsche leads the World Manufacturers Championship title race heading into today’s WEC race at Shanghai.
