Livery and driver change for Team Project 1

Team Project 1 has confirmed that Germany’s Laurents Hörr will replace David Heinemeier Hansson in the No. 56 Porsche 911 RSR for this weekend’s Lone Star Le Mans and for the rest of the FIA WEC Season 8.

The 22-year-old from Gerlingen has made the step up to the WEC from LMP3 and the Michelin Le Mans Cup, where he is the reigning champion.

"It was a long decision-making process involving all the important heads of the team as well as Egidio. In the end, the question was: how we can improve the performance and contest the rest of the season without changing drivers again," explained Team Principal Axel Funke.

Team Manager Marcel Jürgens-Wichmann added: "We thank David for his work with the team. We have worked on a constructive basis. The whole team wishes David all the best for his future in motorsport as well as in his private life. He will always remain part of the Project 1 family.”
