Porsche to test Eng, Catsburg in Bahrain

Porsche Team Manthey will test Philipp Eng and Nick Catsburg in the post-Bahrain WEC test later this month.

The two will drive a 911 RSR in an evaluation test at the desert venue on Sunday 22nd November.

Dutchman Catsburg had impressed in the Blancpain Endurance Series in recent seasons and, along with Bentley's Steven Kane, has been the benchmark performer in this year's races with the now defunct Marc VDS BMW team with whom he won the Spa 24 Hours in July.

Catsburg also made some appearances for the Lada WTCC operation, scoring two fourth places at Moscow and Shanghai.

Austrian racer Eng gets his chance to test the factory Porsche 911 RSR after winning the 2015 Porsche Supercup.
