Pereira scores second win of the season, ten Voorde defends points lead
Two races, two winners and loads of action – spectators at the Sachsenring were treated to gripping motor racing on Sunday in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. Larry ten Voorde won the first race of the day, with race two going to Dylan Pereira in his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup.
The first Carrera Cup race of the weekend was contested on Saturday as part of the ADAC GT Masters event, with Pereira claiming his first victory in the German one-make cup. Third place went to Diego Bertonelli (Fach Auto Tech) from the Porsche Carrera Cup Talent Pool. During the second race of the day, the Porsche Taycan Turbo safety car had to be deployed while a vehicle was being salvaged. Pursuer ten Voorde managed to keep the gap to less than one second over large stretches of the race but was unable to put any serious pressure on the Förch driver. “That was a successful weekend with two wins and three podium results. My first laps were super and I managed to pull away slightly from Larry ten Voorde,” concluded Pereira. Leon Köhler (Germany/T3/HRT Motorsport) secured third place as the best Talent Pool driver.
There were two winners in the ProAm category on Sunday: Carlos Rivas (Luxembourg/Black Falcon Team Textar) claimed the first win, with Matthias Jeserich (CarTech Motorsport by Nigrin) winning the classification at Sunday’s second race. At the motorsport talk show presented by the ADAC, the driver coach of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland Talent Pool, Wolf Henzler, as well as the two youngsters Leon Köhler and Laurin Heinrich (both Germany/T3/HRT Motorsport), discussed the successful youth development initiative of the national one-make cup. That was a spectacular race weekend at the Sachsenring. Teams and drivers faced a special challenge with three races at one event. Everyone involved did their utmost to ensure that the spectators at the ADAC GT Masters weekend experienced some fantastic motorsport, said Hurui Issak, the Project Manager of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. The third Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland weekend also features three races.

Leon Köhler (Germany/T3/HRT Motorsport) Round 2 The winner of the second round of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland season is Dylan Pereira. Larry ten Voorde achieved second place at the race on Saturday, with Leon Köhler on third. As the fastest in qualifying, ten Voorde took up the 30-minute race from pole position at the wheel of his 485 hp Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. The champion of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup defended his top spot at the start, pulled ahead of the field in the first laps and was on a clear course for victory.
Although I was leading for a long time, I have to be content with second place. Dylan Pereira (Förch Racing) was simply faster than me in the final laps. Now we’ll take a look at the data so that we can clock top lap times over the entire distance at Sunday’s races, concluded ten Voorde. The driver from the junior programme of the one-make cup, the so-called Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland Talent Pool, had to relinquish his second spot to Pereira at the start.
