Proton Competition will maintain its program in the WEC in the 2021 season, in an effort that will once again be complemented by its presence in the European Le Mans Series (ELMS). In this regard, the team is evaluating the different possibilities it has for next year, although the preferred option within the training is Get at least three new 2019 Porsche 911 RSR specs to face these programs, since the car of the German brand becomes eligible for the GTE-Am category of the WEC at the beginning of 2021. The team is also in a position to maintain its association with actor Patrick Dempsey.
Porsche Motorsport has produced a series of ten units of this 2019 911 RSR for its customers. In fact, the Stuttgart firm started deliveries last month. Proton and Gulf Racing were already able to test this new 911 specification in Portimao in early November, with positive feelings in both cases. The structural layout of the team, this good feeling with the Porsche 911 RSR and the support of Patrick Dempsey are the three keys to Proton Competition seeks to maintain its program with two cars in the LMGTE-Am category of the WEC for next season, although it is not yet 100% confirmed.

In fact, Christian ried has assured in this regard: «We will have two cars in the ELMS and almost certainly two cars in the WEC. I’m happy with some of our riders, but we haven’t signed anything yet. If we only have one car, that would also be fine, although it is not the idea. In fact, having two cars seems to make more sense than one. However, entering a second car without having a more or less confirmed driver line-up is not the idea because then it is too difficult to find drivers at the last minute. It all depends a bit on how the COVID-19 situation can be handled and see if we can do it.
