Munich. The team of SSR Performance GmbH has been supported by Manthey-Racing since 2019 and celebrated their premiere in one of the most competitive GT3 series, ADAC GT Masters, last year. The entry of the number 92 in their debut season was crowned by the championship title.
This season, both companies expand their partnership with Manthey-Racing joining the Munich based company at their journey to the 24h race at Nürburgring in 2022. The efforts are visible with the logo placement on the yellow-green 911 Porsche of the Meuspath team.
As part of the cooperation, the SSR Performance branding will already be visible on the bonnet of the Porsche at the first run of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS). The highlight of the season calendar is the legendary 24-hour race at Nürburgring.
Stefan Schlund, CEO of SSR Performance GmbH is impressed: “After our guest start in the 2019 apprenticeship year and an outstanding 2020, I am looking forward to starting the 2021 season together with Manthey-Racing as a partner. As a team and company owner, I was overwhelmed to see how quickly our team was able to take over the structures of Manthey and implemented them in a very short time. The ADAC GT Masters title in our debut year crowned the success story. We learned quickly and I’m already looking forward to the 24h race in 2022, when the student competes against the teacher. It will be an exciting duel!”
Long-term cooperation is also important to Nicolas Raeder, Managing Director of Manthey-Racing GmbH: “Now we are accompanying SSR Performance on the way from the sprint to long-distance challenges. That doesn’t mean, however, that next year we won’t compete as opponents on the Nordschleife, which is probably the most important race for us. I’m looking forward to this challenge.”
