Factory drivers making the difference in Germany
Works-supported customer teams succeeding in ADAC GT Masters
Meanwhile, Porsche’s decision to enrol its enviable roster of factory drivers into the efforts of customer racing teams this year is having clear benefits at home in Germany.
In the fiercely contested ADAC GT Masters, Porsche Young Professional Mathieu Jaminet was part of the Precode Herberth Motorsport team which took 4th place at the Sachsenring, which means the 911 GT3 R now heads into the final weekend at the top of the points standings. Jaminet started the race from 9th on the grid, but battled his way up to 4th inside half an hour before handing over to teammate Robert Renauer.
Elsewhere, two more Porsche works drivers in Timo Bernhard and Kévin Estre from the KÜS Team75 Bernhard squad came 5th, the second-best Porsche customer team. The last round of the season takes place at the historic Hockenheimring circuit.
