– SSR Performance contests its first season in the DTM
– Two Porsche 911 GT3 R with starting numbers #92 and #94
Munich. SSR Performance causes a bang and enters two Porsche 911 GT3 Rs for the DTM season 2022. The team is one of the manufacturer’s most successful customer teams. After the driver and team title in the ADAC GT Masters 2020 and the runner-up title in 2021, SSR Performance is now facing the next exciting challenge.
In 2021, SSR Performance completed a guest start with veteran Michael Ammermüller (GER), which went down in DTM history as the first Porsche outing.
With entering two vehicles, starting numbers #92 and #94, the commitment to motorsport is to be continued. With at least eight international racing weekends, the DTM is the perfect stage to showcase the Munich-based company.
The line-up for the two vehicles remains a well-kept secret at SSR Performance for the time being.
Stefan Schlund, CEO of SSR Performance GmbH: “After many and long discussions, I am extremely satisfied to have a good package for the 2022 DTM season. Entering the DTM is very important for our young company. It was all the more important for us to have a powerful line-up with two vehicles at the start. I think the next weeks and months will be very exciting, we still have a lot of work to do before the start of the season in Portimao. However, we like challenges and are looking forward to the DTM 2022.”
Mario Schuhbauer, Team Manager: “After we had the first guest start of a Porsche team in the DTM in 2021, we are all the more pleased to be able to announce our commitment with two Porsche 991.2 GT3 Rs in this racing series for the 2022 season. For our still growing company, the entry into the high-class DTM is a logical step with which we face new challenges and want to build on the successes of the past years.”
Benedikt Böhme, ITR Managing Director: “The teams’ registrations for the DTM 2022 are developing very positively. We are well on the way to an even more exciting season in the coming year. Porsche is a legendary sports car brand, SSR Performance already shines as a young team with remarkable titles – together they increase the level of competition in the DTM and make it more attractive for the fans.”
Frederic Elsner, Director Event & Operations ITR: “Porsche in the DTM – we already felt what that means at our guest start in the Eifel. There is a great fascination with Porsche. And SSR Performance has established itself among the strongest GT teams in a very short time. That deserves great respect and raises the bar for the DTM 2022 even higher for everyone.”
