This is how Porsche prepares for the 8h debut of Portimao
It's the first time the WEC races in the Algarve
They test drove on the 4,684-kilometer long circuit with cars from the previous generation. they also gained some information from the ELMS where team proton competition drives with the 911 RSR. this really helped them to source some race data about the engine, aerodynamics, chassis and tyre condition.

they also made a simulator back in the headquarters at weissach. the driving experiences come as close as possible to the real driving experience. the simulation is basted on rFactor pro. The simulator is also used by the formula E team to delevop the drivers and some factory porsche drivers also train in it for the porsche carrera cup.
