Porsche Skipping Mid-Ohio After Positive COVID-19 Tests

STUTTGART, Germany – The Porsche GT Team will not participate in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship event on Sept. 27 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course after several positive COVID-19 tests were confirmed during the 24 Hours of Le Mans weekend. As a precautionary measure, Porsche Motorsport will not be sending any of its team members who were in Le Mans to the Nürburgring 24 Hours. Factory drivers Laurens Vanthoor, Frédéric Makowiecki and Nick Tandy all competed in Le Mans. “Based on yesterday’s decision that no employee or racing driver of our Le Mans team will participate in the Nürburgring 24 Hours, we have today decided that this ruling will also apply to the upcoming IWSC race in Mid-Ohio.
