In addition to the SSR Performance participation in the ADAC GT Masters, the company around founder Stefan Schlund promotes the youngsters in motorsport.
In 2021 Laurin Heinrich will compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup and Mobile 1 Supercup in SSR Performance colors for the first time in cooperation with VAN BERGHE Huber Racing.
“After our title win in the 2020 ADAC GT Masters season, we want to work with the VAN BERGHE Huber Racing team to promote promising young talents in GT racing. It starts with Laurin Heinrich, who won the rookie classification of the 2020 Porsche Carrera Cup. The funding is further proof of our long-term commitment to GT racing”, said Stefan Schlund.

Laurin Heinrich is 19 years old and has been active in motorsport since 2009. The driver, who lives in Würzburg, was able to demonstrate his skills at a young age.
In 2018, the German received a driver contract from the Williams F1 esports team. In 2019 Laurin became champion in the Porsche Super Sports Cup.
The next logical step was to enter the Porsche Carrera Cup, which he finished in 2020 as a rookie champion. In 2021 he will again take part in the Carrera Cup, the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and be accepted into the ADAC Sports Foundation.
