Early last week, Sportscargeek covered Manthey racing’s announcement to support eight cars for the Nürburgring 24 hour, one of those cars being the recently unveiled GT3-R Hybrid. Yesterday, Porsche Motorsports announced the all-star lineup that will handle driving duties during the legendary 24 hour race.

The crew consists of Porsche factory heavyweights Jörg Bergmeister, Richard Lietz, Martin Ragginger, and Porsche-Junior team driver, Marco Holzer.

The quartet has no shortage of experience, Bergmeister having achieved back to back ALMS championships with the Flying Lizard team, Lietz taking victory in the 2009 LMS championship (with partner Marc Lieb, also part of the Manthey squad), Ragginger managing two podiums during the 2009 FIA-GT season, and Holzer recently achieving victory in the Dubai 24 hours, all drivers are well versed in the art of endurance.
