•    Luxembourger secures a commanding lights-to-flag victory in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup fielded by BWT Lechner Racing


•    Defending champion Larry ten Voorde (Team GP Elite) snatches second place from Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich (SSR Huber Racing) in the final lap


•    Zandvoort hosts round seven already this coming weekend at the Dutch North Sea coast




Dylan Pereira has taken a big step towards winning his first title in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. The Luxembourger dominated round six in Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps and extended his lead in the overall classification to twelve points over Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich. The German finished third on the Formula 1 circuit in the Ardennes behind the defending champion Larry ten Voorde from the Netherlands.



His rivals had been warned. “I’ll get off the line perfectly and immediately put some space between me and the rest of the field,” Dylan Pereira revealed his race strategy already before start. On Saturday, the Luxembourger posted pole position for the Supercup race at Spa-Francorchamps.


For Sunday’s race, Pereira then implemented this plan perfectly: Right after the start, he defended his front spot at the wheel of his ca. 375 kW (510 PS) Porsche 911 GT3 Cup fielded by the BWT Lechner Racing team. Lap by lap, he then continued to pull clear of his pursuers.


At the finish line after twelve laps, Pereira had built up an almost seven-second advantage over Dutchman Larry ten Voorde – a small eternity by Supercup standards. The defending champion from the GP Elite squad managed to overtake the second-placed Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich (SSR Huber Racing) on the final lap.



“I even managed to conserve my tyres because I wanted to be ready for the restart after a safety car phase. I only picked up my pace a little on the last laps. Then it was just a matter of not making any mistakes,” declared Pereira. Thanks to his third win of the season, he has extended his championship lead to twelve points.



“My chances of winning the title look really good now. At the moment, I think we’re strong enough as a team to tackle the last two races feeling optimistic.”



All hopes for title defender Larry ten Voorde are pinned on the upcoming home race in Zandvoort. With two races left on the calendar, he lies 15 points behind Pereira. “If I want to have a chance against Dylan, I have to win next weekend,” said the Dutchman.



“But we need to do better. He was simply too fast at Spa-Francorchamps.” With an impressive overtaking manoeuvre, the GP Elite driver snatched second place from Germany’s Laurin Heinrich. “I figured Laurin had problems. When he braked for the hairpin corner at the end of the start-finish straight, he opened the door for me and I grabbed my chance,” says ten Voorde, describing the decisive moment.



Heinrich took it in his stride: “My whole race didn’t go so smoothly. I knew Larry would try to attack near the end. If I’d fended him off once, I’m certain he would have succeeded the next time. Under such circumstances, I’m pretty happy with third place.” The 20-year-old from Germany maintains his second place in the standings.



Oliver Schwab, Project Manager of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, looks ahead to the remaining Supercup races at Zandvoort in the Netherlands and Monza (Italy) with interest: “As the 30th Supercup season draws to a close, a three-way fight is unfolding. Three drivers from three different teams are very close in the overall standings. We’re sure to witness a very interesting final phase.”



The possible title decision in the rookie classification was deferred. Denmark’s Bastian Buus from the BWT Lechner Racing team continued his flawless streak and set a new record with his sixth straight victory. Finishing sixth overall, Buus, however, did not collect enough points to take home an early crown. Lorcan Hanafin threw a proverbial spanner in the works. The UK driver from the FACH AUTO TECH squad delivered his best performance to date with seventh place. As a result, Hanafin still has a chance, albeit small, of catching Buus in the race for the rookie trophy.



First place in the ProAm category went to Aaron Mason from the Pierre Martinet by Alméras team for the second time this season. Mason’s Norwegian teammate Roar Lindland defended his lead in this class with third place.




Next Supercup round already this coming weekend at Zandvoort



The Spa-Francorchamps race marked the start of a so-called “triple header” for the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. This coming weekend (2 to 4 September 2022) Zandvoort hosts round seven of the season. A week later, the finale will be contested at Monza in northern Italy (9 to 11 September 2022).



The Circuit Zandvoort is the most recent addition to the list of racetracks on which the Supercup has made guest appearances in its 30-year history. In 2021, the international one-make cup was contested for the first time on the 4.259-kilometre racetrack in the dunes on the North Sea coast.



The debut concluded with the first Supercup victory for today’s Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich. “To compete in Zandvoort watched by around 100,000 spectators is an incredible experience. I won my first Supercup race there last year – with the same team I’m competing for now. So we’re perfectly prepared,” said the SSR Huber Racing driver.



Four-time winner of the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia as a guest driver


One of the guest drivers at the Supercup race in Zandvoort is Lukas Sundahl. The 25-year-old receives support from Porsche Sweden and tackles the race for Fragus Motorsport.



For Sundahl, this is just his second outing in the international one-make cup. In his homeland, however, he is one of the most experienced – and fastest – 911 drivers: between 2018 and 2021, Sundahl won the Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia title four times in a row.
