PORSCHE 911 GT1-98 n.26
The Porsche 911 GT1-98 no.26 is the winning prototype of the 24-hour Le Mans in 1998. The car designed by Norbert Singer made his debut at Le Mans in 1996, where he won the GT1 class victory but not the overall victory. The 911 GT1 was equipped with a six-cylinder boxer.
Aiello, McNish and Ortelli won the 1998 Le Mans 24 Hours with the Porsche 911 GT1-98 n.26. The winning trio arrived in front of the n.25 twin car driven by Muller, Alzen and Wollek. The race of the Porsche was very regular, knowing that being slower than the adversaries took advantage of the technical problems of the very fast Toyota Gt-One, the Mercedes CLK-LM and the BMW.
In 1999 the FIA decided to abolish the GT1 class and the Stuttgart home abandoned the endurance races.
