Proton Huber Competition starts in Barcelona

Back in the 2022/2023 season, Huber Racing won the GT Winter Series championship with Johannes Kapfinger in a Porsche GT3 Cup (Type 992). Since then, a lot has changed in the Porsche team from near Passau. Following a merger with the successful FIA WEC team Proton Competition, the team now competes under the name Proton Huber Competition.

At the season finale of this year’s GT Winter Series season, the racing team from Hofkirchen will now compete in the popular racing series organised by GEDLICH Racing for the first time this year. Jörg Dreisow and Manuel Lauck, who recently finished a strong third in the GT4 Winter Series at Motorland Aragon, will drive a 992-generation Porsche 911 GT3 R at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona.

The start at the season finale on the outskirts of Barcelona will serve as preparation for the upcoming season in the Michelin Le Mans Cup, where the duo will compete for the first time and face strong international competition. It will also be the first race outing for both of them in Porsche’s current GT3 generation. Last year, the two drivers contested the race weekend in Barcelona and put in a strong performance that ended with overall victory in the endurance race.
