Larry ten Voorde: “As defending champion, you’re the benchmark”
With eight wins and 326 points to his credit, Larry ten Voorde (Team GP Elite) has been crowned the champion of the 2021 Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. An interview.
Throughout this interview, ten Voorde reveals, among other things, his personal highlights of the season, why the most difficult phase of his career was also the most important one and how he has changed since his first race in the 2017 Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland.
the title in the 2021 Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland: Nobody has ever managed to win the title in both the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup two years in a row. When you consider how many great drivers were on the starting grids in these series, it makes me very proud. This definitely includes my first win of the season in the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup at the season-opener in Spa. The home win in Zandvoort is also one of my personal favourites.
Larry ten Voorde: “I didn’t have a plan B”
Back then it was definitely Kimi Raikkonen, today it’s Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. I compete with Max Verstappen as a sim racer in Team Redline. the differences between winning a title and defending it: In my opinion, defending a win is another level. It’s a different pressure, but I really enjoyed that role. I want to win more titles, preferably in endurance races. In general, motorsport in the USA appeals to me.
