Lechner Racing Porsche Supercup
JB Simmenauer confirmed for another season at BWT Lechner Racing
Lechner Racing and JB Simmenauer will continue their long term partnership for the upcoming 2021season. The young Frenchmen together with BWT Lechner Racing will have another go at the title in the Porsche Carrera Cup France, where he was in the fight for the championship until the very last race in 2020 and will also be a fix asset in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup 2021 for the successful Lechner Racing squad.
CEO and team principal Robert Lechner is “very much looking forward to continue working with JB. I heard his name for the first time when he was very successful in international Karting and when he joined us, I immediately got on very well with him. He showed a very good performance last year and I am glad that he can now further build on his experience. His first goal will be to win the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East, which he is currently leading with only two more races to go at the end of March in Bahrain.”
Simmenauer himself is also very happy to continue with the team: “I am really excited to start the new season soon. For sure the new car is going to be a real challenge, but I fully trust the team to make it the fastest on the grid. I have a strong bond to Lechner Racing, Walter trusted me and made me drive for the team. Now I would be happy and proud to accomplish more victories and maybe even a championship with Robert. I will do everything to contribute to the success of the team in all series.”
