Manthey Racing has recently outlined their plans for the VLN series, and Nürburgring 24H assault.
Olaf Manthey has confirmed the team will run eight cars throughout the 2010 season. Reigning champions Marcel Tiemann, Marc Lieb, Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas will pilot Weissach’s latest GT3-spec variant, the GT3-R.
Two GT3-R chassis supported by ‘Haribo’ will consist of the following driver lineups:
– Georg Weiss, Michael Jacobs, Peter-Paul Pietsch, and Oliver Kainz.
– Richard Westbrook, Alexandros Margaritis, Christian Menzel, and Lance David Arnold.
‘Moskovskaya’ will support a fourth GT3-R for the team (not to appear until the third round of the series), to be driven by Armin Hahne, Jochen Krumbach and Marc Gindorf.
Two Cup cars will also be utilised by the team. The first car will be shared by Gary Williams, Daniel Cook, Tim Perry and Julian Raven, while Martin Ragginger, Rainer and Marc Holte Porsche will share the second.
In addition to the above, Manthey will also provide logistical/technical support to the Porsche factory, with plans to run the recently unveiled GT3-R Hybrid, as well as a GT3-RS to be driven by two time World rally champion, Walter Röhrl.
