Porsche Supercup: Third win of the season for Thomas Preining
For the third time this season, the young Austrian Porsche Junior Thomas Preining converted his pole position into the victory in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup today at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. He previously did the same at Red Bull Ring and Hungaroring.
Today, the driver of the #2 BWT Lechner Racing’s Porsche 911 GT3 Cup shared a podium with Zaid Ashkanani (MRS GT-Racing) and Mattia Drudi (Dinamic Motorsport). The Dutchman Larry ten Voorde (Team Project 1) initially finished in the second place but he received a penalty due to a jump start and dropped to P10.
Michael Ammermuller (BWT Lechner Racing) stayed in the championship lead after finishing sixth today at Spa, behind Julien Andlauer (Martinet by Almeras) and Nick Yelloly (Fach Auto Tech). Thirty-three drivers from 15 nations participated in the race in front of full Formula 1 grandstands. One of the guest drivers was Formula E star Felix Rosenqvist who finished in the ninth place.
After seven races, with three more on the calendar, Ammermuller leads with 101 points, just one more than Nick Yelloly. Preining is third with 85 points. The next race is scheduled for the next weekend at Monza.
