Porsche Supercup heads to Silverstone
Porsche's single make series returns to the ‘Home of British Motor Racing’
Round four of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup returns to Silverstone this weekend, in support of the British Grand Prix.
L/BWT Lechner Racing’s Dylan Pereira currently leads the championship with a 22-point margin over both Porsche Junior Ayhancan Güven and Larry ten Voorde.
“The Silverstone Grand Prix circuit is a demanding racetrack,” said Pereira, who has recently won rounds in both Austria and Hungary. “The pace here is usually very high and there are a handful of corners that take courage. What’s more, you always have to be prepared for rain in England. I’m expecting a very exciting weekend.”
Güven is odds-on to ensure it is for his main title rival. The talented Turkish driver celebrated his first Supercup victory here last year – an important step on the way to claiming the rookie title as well as being named the best newcomer in 2019.
“Despite the difficult circumstances with the Coronavirus, we’ve made a great start into the season,” said Oliver Schwab, Project Manager Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. “The first three races offered superb motor racing. The fact that the best drivers from the virtual edition of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup are also at the top of the real races speaks volumes for the versatility of the drivers.”
The race starts on Sunday 2 August at 11.30 am local time and fans can enjoy live stream coverage on F1TV.formula1.com.
