Sounds to me to be a bit like the Oreca/Toyota relationship?

Event though they've already killed P1, I'm sure USCR is kicking themselves at missing out on having Penske in their series.

Understand the underlying importance here isn't the Penske/Porsche connection, my tweet isn't necessarily confirmation of that, but that a team is being set up by Penske to be run out of Germany (so I'm told: current Penske employees are being solicited for this team with the stipulation that they live in Germany). THAT's the important fact here, thus seemingly rubbishing the hopes that we'd see a Porsche LMP1 run over here either in USCR (somehow) or in this supposed break away series.

Yes, there's a leap of faith to an extent here: the team could simply be heading to Germany to assemble their cars. But that was addressed inasmuch as there was little indication this would be temporary (a few weeks). It was said as though it would be a permanent transfer (the length of the program). But note, there's been no denial about WHY Penske personnel would be heading to Germany (though at this rate I do fully expect a Porsche PR press release or direct email denying everything I've stated above...).

So don't go looking for the Penske/Porsche press releases, those aren't out yet, and probably won't be till the end of the season. But Penske IS setting up a team to run a Porsche LMP1 out of Germany. Plus there is one other tidbit I'm sitting on for now that reinforces the active Penske/Porsche connection.

Simple question: does that mean there's a highly significant chance of running into Roger Penske himself in the Le Mans paddock next year?

Thanks Mike - I wonder if the "length of stay" in Germany has something to do with learning the new and rather complex hybrid technology that will no doubt be abundant in the car.

But, but, but......it didn't come as a breaking news tweet, powered by mountain dew, from Dagys...




Hahahahahaha.....thanks mike for "confirming" everything. Is the Porsche factory using Penske like Manthey? My bet is firmly hedged on yes.

Rumors here in Charlotte don't address that beyond which what I've relayed.

David Land has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I am finding it much harder to care about the USCR, especially if there at Penske Porsches in the WEC next year!

Penske with Porsche to the WEC will actually give me something to root for next year, and a reason to follow the series round to round. Something that even a factory Porsche GTE effort hasn't mustered this year.

Wonder if Belle Isle could become an extra WEC round as a result of this? With the plethora of tracks available with the 'merged' USRC series, I haven't seen BI mentioned. With Roger 'Mr. Detroit' Penske having so much influence in Motown, I think I would rather travel 10 hours to Detroit to see the WEC cars there rather than travel one hour to RA to see the cars of the USRC series.

Penske setting up a shop in Germany can be a potential bombshell for the German auto racing scene. I may be dreaming, but it'd be cool to see the Captain at the pit wall in the DTM.

Rumours are that DTM might come to the States, so this "shop" could also administrate and learn the cars before they make an entry in USA.
