2011 Nürburgring 24 hour race, Preview

33 Porsche tackle the long distance classic in the Eifel


A strong contingent of Porsche teams takes up the 24 hour race on the Nürburgring. Like last year, Porsche AG as well as various customer teams field 33 vehicles featuring the characteristic six-cylinder boxer engine at the 39th running of the long distance classic in Germany’s Eifel region on 25/26 June. Eight Porsche works drivers contest Germany’s greatest motorsport event at which Porsche has celebrated four overall victories in the last five years.

After an impressive 24 hour debut last year where it held the lead for eight hours witnessed by over 200,000 ardent spectators and grabbed headlines worldwide, the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid returns to the Nordschleife this year with the starting number 9. The vehicle, however, has been substantially reined in by the organisers. After the latest reclassification, the combustion engine now delivers only 448 hp. Calculated over one lap, the further-developed 911 GT3 R Hybrid (Version 2.0) now delivers a lower system output than last year’s vehicle with a combustion engine.

“This further reduction in performance by the organisers is incomprehensible to us,” says Porsche Head of Motorsport, Hartmut Kristen. “There are no data from the two test races as part of the 2011 Nürburgring Long Distance Championship that would provide the basis for such a grading. Our goal was and is to achieve similar lap times to other GT3 vehicles, but with better efficiency. We feel this goal is the right one long term and very much regret that some officials in motorsport can’t or won’t yet come on board with this approach.”

Sharing the cockpit of the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid 2.0 are Porsche factory pilots Joerg Bergmeister (Germany), Richard Lietz (Austria), Patrick Long (USA) and Marco Holzer (Germany), who were all deeply involved in the vehicle development. The efficiency of the innovative race car from Weissach was improved through targeted optimisation of the hybrid components. The general hybrid layout of the Version 2.0 was adopted from its predecessor. The output of both electric motors in the portal axle increased from 60 to 75 kilowatts each. They supplement the four-litre six-cylinder boxer engine which now only delivers 448 hp after the repeated power reduction. For seconds at a time, pilots now have about 200 hp more at their disposal, which is equivalent to ca. 32 hp of additional conventional power per Nordschleife lap. Depending on the programming, this electrical power is automatically activated through use of the throttle pedal. Moreover, hybrid pilots can manually call up this extra power, for instance when overtaking.

“We’ll go all out to continue on from last year’s strong performance with the 911 GT3 R Hybrid. It won’t be easy against the strong opposition who have taken major steps forward, particularly since our car has been disproportionately handicapped,” says Joerg Bergmeister. The Porsche works driver is looking forward to the Nordschleife: “It’s one of the world’s most beautiful race tracks. It’s incredibly demanding but it’s incredible fun as well. Every lap is a challenge.”

This year, the winning Manthey Racing squad fields two Porsche 911 - a GT3 R and a GT3 RSR - sporting a prominent yellow-green design. Manning both vehicles is the winning Porsche works driver quartet, Timo Bernhard (Germany), Romain Dumas (France), Marc Lieb (Germany) as well as Manthey pilot Lucas Luhr (Switzerland), who have notched up over 50 major international titles between them.

Every year, Timo Bernhard is thrilled anew by the unique atmosphere of the non-stop motorsport party. “Driving on the Nordschleife is always an experience,” says the Porsche works driver and Le Mans winner, who has contributed to all four Porsche overall victories here between 2006 and 2009. “Although you’re constantly challenged as a driver and there is no chance to catch your breath over the long laps, you still don’t want to climb out of the car.”

The Porsche teams are in a good position for Friday’s final qualifying for the 24 hour race. With the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR fielded by Manthey Racing, Porsche works drivers Marc Lieb (Germany), Timo Bernhard (Germany) and Romain Dumas (France) together with Lucas Luhr (Switzerland) posted sixth place. The quartet won the 24 hour race four times straight from 2006 to 2009.

The seventh quickest time was claimed by Porsche works driver Wolf Henzler (Germany), Peter Dumbreck (Great Britain), Martin Ragginger (Austria) and Sebastian Asch (Germany) in the 911 GT3 R of Falken Motorsport. Richard Westbrook (Great Britain), Christian Menzel (Germany), Mike Stursberg (Germany) and Hans Guido Riegel (Germany) planted their Haribo Team Manthey 911 GT3 R on the tenth grid spot.

Fielded by Porsche Team Manthey, the further-developed Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid (Version 2.0) with its innovative hybrid drive was not able to match the pace of the fastest vehicles after its performance was capped recently by the organisers. Moreover, Joerg Bergmeister (Germany) had to contend with heavy traffic during his fastest lap and only managed 18th. He shares the cockpit of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid with his factory pilot colleagues Richard Lietz (Austria), Marco Holzer (Germany) and Patrick Long (USA).

The second and final qualifying takes place on Friday from 16.55 to 18.55 hours. The 24 hour race gets underway on Saturday at 16.00 hours. Television station Sport1 intermittently broadcasts more than 13 hours of the race live on Saturday (from 15.45 hours) and Sunday (from 07.00 hrs). A one-hour highlight programme of the race is televised on Sunday at 22.30 hours.


Quotes from the drivers

Marc Lieb (No. 18, Manthey Racing): “We changed the set-up of our car during the qualifying and turned the fastest lap 40 minutes before the end. Now we’re happy with everything. If it stays dry for tomorrow’s final qualifying session we’ll attack again.”

Joerg Bergmeister (No. 9, Porsche Team Manthey): “We didn’t really expect to actually do well. We could have been a bit faster but the heavy traffic prevented a better time.”

Wolf Henzler (No. 44, Falken Motorsports): “We’re satisfied with our set-up. The track conditions were very good with loads of grip. Martin Ragginger went out first and set our best time. Still, we’re more than eight seconds shy of the quickest vehicle.”

Richard Lietz (No. 9, Porsche Team Manthey): “The lengthy qualifying today was a good chance to familiarise myself with the car and to get a good feeling for driving at the limit. The character of our rolling race lab is somewhat different to the 911 GT3 RSR that I drove in Le Mans two weeks ago.”

Marco Holzer (No. 9, Porsche Team Manthey): “I got four yellow flags while I was out on the track. It’s not easy to get a free lap. We worked some more on our race set-up and tried to bring the tyres up to the optimal temperature. Driving on the Nordschleife at night is exhausting, you first have to get back the feeling for it.”

Patrick Long (No. 9, Porsche Team Manthey): “Yesterday I drove in the rain for the first time on the Nordschleife and that is something quite special. Our car is well balanced and I’m very happy about that. Regardless of whether it rains during the race or stays dry, I’m feeling well prepared.”

Best Porsche in the fourth grid row

As the best-placed Porsche team, Porsche works drivers Marc Lieb (Germany), Timo Bernhard (Germany) and Romain Dumas (France) take up the 24 hour race on Saturday with Lucas Luhr (Switzerland) from the fourth grid row. At the wheel of Manthey Racing’s Porsche 911 GT3 R, they concluded the final qualifying for the long distance classic in the Eifel on eighth place.

The further-developed Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid (Version 2.0) with drivers Joerg Bergmeister (Germany), Richard Lietz (Austria), Marco Holzer (Germany) and Patrick Long (USA) posted the eleventh quickest time. The Porsche works drivers were able to improve on their first qualifying session by three places, but the gap to the top was just over seven seconds.

On the 16th grid spot are the parallel running team of the same Marc Lieb, Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas and Lucas Luhr in the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR that the Manthey Racing team fields parallel to the 911 GT3 R. Directly behind them is Porsche factory pilot Wolf Henzler (Germany) as well as Peter Dumbreck (Great Britain), Martin Ragginger (Austria) and Sebastian Asch (Germany) in the Porsche 911 GT3 R of Falken Motorsports on position 17.

Comments from the drivers

Marc Lieb (No. 11/18, Manthey Racing): “I drove the GT3 today but didn’t manage to find an optimal lap because I had to wait too long at the pit lane exit and was therefore too late. All in all I have to say that I couldn’t do much more. But we now have 24 hours ahead of us.”

Timo Bernhard (No. 11/18 Manthey Racing): “I only conducted function tests after changing crucial components like the engine and gearbox. It was all good. The car feels great.”

Romain Dumas (No. 11/18, Manthey Racing): “Our timing wasn’t perfect. When we wanted to push, it started to rain. But we’ve made huge progress in our set-up and that was our main goal for today. It’ll be a long race and anything can happen.”

Joerg Bergmeister (No. 9, Porsche Team Manthey): “We obviously made the right decision and went for top times when it was dry right from the start. It worked and I got in a clear lap. Our car is handling very well.”

Richard Lietz (No. 9, Porsche Team Manthey): “Overnight we changed the engine and gearbox and ran in the new parts. The conditions were quite difficult out there because sections of the track were either dry, damp or wet.”

Wolf Henzler (No. 44, Falken Motorsports): “First we had to run in all the new parts for the race, the engine, gearbox, brake pads and so on. When I wanted to go out for my fast lap it began to rain. At the entrance to the Nordschleife I began to slide on all four wheels and had to abandon my lap. When we tried again towards the end of the session the track was still partly wet and then I encountered a car sideways in front of me and had to brake hard. It’s a shame, I could have done better.”

The 24 hour race takes off on Saturday at 16.00 hours. TV station Sport1 intermittently broadcasts more than 13 hours of the race live on Saturday (from 15.45 hours) and Sunday (17.00 hours). A one-hour highlight programme is televised on Sunday at 22.30 hours.

At the Porsche press conference held on the day before the Porsche Carrera World Cup and the Nürburgring 24 hour race, Porsche head of motorsport Hartmut Kristen and Porsche works driver Timo Bernhard fielded questions from journalists.

Hartmut Kristen on the further-developed Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid: “The main priority for us was about improving efficiency. We reached this goal through targeted optimisation of the hybrid components. We reduced the weight by 50 kilograms, at the same time increasing the performance of the two electric motors from 60 to 75 kilowatts each. All of this was with the objective of improving the efficiency.”

Timo Bernhard on his second 24 hour race in two weeks: “It’s quite exhausting obviously, but we’re trained for it. That’s our job. Both Le Mans and the Nordschleife are unbelievably demanding circuits.

We’re driving both the 911 GT3 R and the 911 GT3 RSR here. The race cars are not that different in their handling, they’re both 911s after all. The 911 GT3 R is built more for top speed, the 911 GT3 RSR for more downforce. Because the competition is incredibly strong this year, our team boss Olaf Manthey decided that we should test both vehicles and then decide which one we’ll finally drive for the race.

Many regard us as favourites because we won four consecutive times between 2006 and 2009. As far as I’m concerned, the most important factors are the reliability and speed of the 911 as well as having Olaf Manthey as an ingenious team boss and strategist. He lives only three kilometres away from the track and knows it and the Eifel like no other.”

Nürburgring 24 hour race – Interim report after 6:30 hours

Best Porsche in second – problems for the 911 GT3 R Hybrid

The Porsche 911 GT3 RSR of Manthey Racing continues to run amongst the leaders at the Nürburgring 24 hour race. After six hours, Porsche works drivers Marc Lieb (Germany), Timo Bernhard (Germany) and Romain Dumas (France) togther with Lucas Luhr (Switzerland) hold second place. Prior to this they had taken over the lead after almost five hours and held on to it for four laps until their pit stop.

The Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid also led at the long distance classic in the Eifel. After around four hours the innovative race car fielded by Porsche Team Manthey with Porsche works drivers Joerg Bergmeister (Germany), Richard Lietz (Austria), Marco Holzer (Germany) and Patrick Long (USA) took the lead for two laps before losing it after taking a planned pit stop. Possibly due to a nudge with a competitor, a broken flange on the differential forced the 911 GT3 R Hybrid into the pits. Through the repairs it lost six laps to the leader.

The engine was replaced on the Porsche 911 GT3 R driven by Porsche works driver Wolf Henzler (Germany) and Peter Dumbreck (Great Britain), Martin Ragginger (Austria) and Sebastian Asch (Germany). As planned, another Porsche 911 GT3 R which was run parallel to the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR fielded by Manthey Racing was taken out of the race after a trouble free first two hours. Now the team can concentrate on running just one car.

Quotes from the drivers

Martin Ragginger (No. 44, Porsche 911 GT3 R, Falken Motorsports): “We were doing really well and avoided taking any risks early on in the race. What a shame we’ve now lost so much time. But we’ll keep going and let’s see how many places we can make up.”

Timo Bernhard (No. 18, Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, Manthey Racing):
“My stint went smoothly. There were many places that were yellow-flagged, particularly in the mid-section of the circuit and I had to drive slower so as not to incur a penalty.”

Lucas Luhr (No. 18, Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, Manthey Racing):
“During the pit stop one of the Nürburgring’s petrol pumps didn’t work. The petrol simply didn’t come out. So we had to push the car back to another pump and in doing so lost almost one minute.”

Porsche 911 GT3 RSR defends its lead during the night

The Porsche teams made it through the night without problems at the Nürburgring 24 hour race. Manthey Racing’s Porsche 911 GT3 RSR took over the lead of the long distance classic in the Eifel on Saturday at 23.25 hours, further extended its advantage at the top, and after 15 hours and 96 laps sits 6:32.7 minutes ahead of its rivals. Sharing the cockpit of the front-runner are Marc Lieb (Germany), Timo Bernhard (Germany) and Romain Dumas (France) together with Lucas Luhr (Switzerland).

After suffering a broken differential flange on Saturday night, the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid lost over an hour with two pit stops, but is now reliably running without problems in its hunt for better positions. After the race car with its innovative drive concept fell back to 105th place, the Porsche works drivers Joerg Bergmeister (Germany), Richard Lietz (Austria), Marco Holzer (Germany) and Patrick Long (USA) ploughed through the field during the night to now sit 29th.

Running in eighth is the Porsche 911 GT3 R fielded by Haribo Team Manthey with drivers Richard Westbrook (Great Britain), Christian Menzel (Germany), Mike Stursberg (Germany) and Hans Guido Riegel (Germany). One other Porsche currently ranks in the top ten: The 911 GT3 R of the Wochenspiegel Team Manthey squad, with the all-German line-up of Georg Weiss, Oliver Kainz, Michael Jakobs and Jochen Krumbach, sits in tenth place.

Quotes from the drivers

Timo Bernhard (No. 18, Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, Manthey Racing): “I drove a double stint, that’s almost three hours at once. The car ran without any problems. It was huge fun extending our advantage. I hope that we can continue our good streak.”

Richard Lietz (No. 9, Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid, Porsche Team Manthey): “We’ll keep running as we are and see what happens. After our problems we’ve done well in getting ahead, but of course it always becomes more difficult to make up more positions.”
