Pedro Piquet with guest start during round of Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup at Red Bull Ring
The third round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season 2015 is going to be held at the Red Bull Ring from 19 – 21 June 2015 and will mark another special occasion in the 40 Year Anniversary season for team principal Walter Lechner Sr.
The race in the Austrian city of Spielberg is already of high importance as it marks the home race for the team from Faistenau, close to Salzburg. For the jubilee season Walter Lechner hopes to take the top step on the podium, after claiming second position with Jeffrey Schmidt in 2014.
To fortify the chances on a successful overall performance the team is happy welcome an additional driver for the weekend. Pedro Piquet, son of three-time Formula 1 champion Nelson Piquet, will participate this weekend, piloting the fifth Porsche GT3 Cup (991) entered under the flag of Lechner Racing Middle East. The 16-year old from Brasilia claimed the Championship title of the Brazilian Formula 3 Championship in season 2014 and is currently participating the full season in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Brazil.
Pedro Piquet will be another strong addition to the current line-up consisting of Michael Ammermüller, Sven Müller, Jeffrey Schmidt and Alex Riberas who all already this season in either Porsche Mobil1 Supercup or Porsche Carrera Cup Germany climbed a step on the podium.
After Michael Ammermüller's victory in the opening round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season in Barcelona we are very confident to take the top position again during our home race adding another triumph to the successfully started jubilee season.
