Second win of the season for Köhler, Hartog secures rookie class title

Round 16

Second place at race 16 of the season went to Saturday’s winner and newly crowned champion Larry ten Voorde (Netherlands/Team GP Elite), followed by Bastian Buus (Denmark/Allied-Racing) in third. At the season finale, the last remaining title decision was made: Loek Hartog (Netherlands/Black Falcon Team Textar) won the rookie class of the 2021 season. Polesetter ten Voorde, Morris Schuring (Netherlands/Team GP Elite) and Laurin Heinrich (Germany/Van Berghe Huber Racing) sprinted to the first corner wheel-to-wheel, where Köhler promptly overtook the trio on the inside line. Ten Voorde followed him over the finish line after battling against rookie Schuring.

I have mixed feelings about this race. On the one hand, third place is a great result, but I really wanted to win the rookie title. All in all, it was a fantastic debut season for me, concluded Buus. To be honest, this weekend was complicated for me. We somehow couldn’t find the right setup. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to put Larry ten Voorde under any real pressure in the fight for the title. Still, second place in my first Carrera Cup season is a good result, said Güven. Last season I won the Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux, this year I’m the best rookie in the German Carrera Cup. That’s a great feeling. Bastian Buus proved to be a tough opponent and it was gripping to the last lap, stated Hartog.

Round 15 After scoring his eighth win this season, Larry ten Voorde (Team GP Elite) has become champion of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland for the second time in a row. At the Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg, the Dutchman Larry ten Voorde (Team GP Elite) won race 15 on Saturday and thus holds an attainable lead with 306 points before the final race on Sunday. Positions two and three in the race run as part of the ADAC GT Masters support programme went to Laurin Heinrich (Germany/Van Berghe Huber Racing) and Morris Schuring (Netherlands/Team GP Elite). For ten Voorde, the situation was clear-cut: Should the 25-year-old reach the finish line before Porsche Junior Ayhancan Güven (Turkey/Phoenix Racing) in his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, he would be champion.

Ten Voorde’s teammate Schuring secured his first podium result in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland at Hockenheim. That’s a great result. Second place would have been better, but Laurin Heinrich was clearly faster and I didn’t want to jeopardise my chances of a great result through making any risky tactical moves, said the 16-year-old. After a braking error in the final phase, Güven finished the race in seventh place. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the pace from the start to be in the fight for the title. Still, I managed to hold on to fourth until shortly before the flag. We will analyse the race and go all-out again on Sunday, concluded Güven.

The race in the ProAm class

Defending the title was our goal. I’m proud that we achieved this ahead of schedule. In the race, I was in second place in the ProAm for a long time but I knew that my car would be fast in the final phase thanks to the setup. That paid off, said Rivas. Three of the four titles were still open prior to the season finale. That says a lot about the consistently strong standard and the high level of competition in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. Congratulations to Larry ten Voorde and Carlos Rivas, who have been rewarded for their strong performances in defending their titles, said Pollich.

The 16th and final race of the Porsche Carrera Cup season takes off on Sunday at 3:10 pm local time and will be broadcast live on the German free TV Sport1. The race can also be watched via a live stream on the YouTube and Facebook channels of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland as well as in the Porsche Motorsport Hub.
