Kevin Estre has been given permission by McLaren to race for Porsche in the second round of the World Endurance Championship at Spa next month.

The McLaren factory driver will team up with Porsche junior driver Sven Muller in the number 91 Porsche Team Manthey 919 RSR in the GTE Pro category. The switch has been made due to the Spa of the WEC clashing with the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship's event at Laguna Seca on 2-3 May.

Porsche's USCC team will also lose Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber who are set to run in the third 919 Hybrid in the LMP1 class at Spa.
