•    First race outing for Munich-based outfit





A new team will make their debut in the ADAC GT Masters at Hockenheim next weekend. Contesting the sixth round of the Super Sports Car League, Munich-based outfit, SSR Performance, will field a Porsche 911 GT3 R with Marco Seefried (43, GER) and Matt Campbell (24, AUS) as guest entrants. The team will get support from Porsche experts, Manthey Racing.
 


SSR Performance GmbH was founded in 2016 by Stefan Schlund. The company has quickly made a name for itself in the construction, restoration and tuning of sports cars and classic vehicles, and the Munich concern now intends to try its hand at motor racing. "We're really looking forward to our race debut and want to prove our motor racing expertise in one of Europe's most interesting GT racing series," said CEO, Stefan Schlund.



The outfit will receive back-up and support in the ADAC GT Masters from Manthey Racing. Bernhard Demmer, Team Principal at Manthey Racing, is looking forward to working with the outfit: "I love new projects. They're always exciting, and so, we're delighted to be providing support for SSR Performance in their first race in the ADAC GT Masters and will do our utmost to achieve the best possible results for them at Hockenheim. We have a strong overall package with the two drivers, Matt Campbell and Marco Seefried, the Porsche 911 GT3 R and our combined expertise."
 


SSR Performance's two drivers, Seefried and Campbell, have already gained a lot of experience with the 911. Seefried has raced for many years in a range of national and international GT series and competed in the ADAC GT Masters from 2011-2013. He is also one of Porsche Motorsport's regular test drivers at Weissach. "I'm looking forward to returning to the ADAC GT Masters," said the Bavarian.



"The series is very competitive and has evolved a lot since my last race there. Of course, everything will be new to the outfit, but we have plenty of strong elements to our team and are therefore well placed."
 


Seefried's team-mate, 24-year-old Australian, Matt Campbell, has enjoyed plenty of success in recent years, especially in Porsche one-make cups, winning the GTE Am class at the 24-Hours of Le Mans in 2018. He won the 12-Hours of Bathurst in February of this year and debuted in the ADAC GT Masters with Frikadelli Racing's Porsche in mid-August when he had a good showing in Sunday's qualifying with fifth place.
