Evans takes Red Bull Ring victory

Jaxon Evans won the third round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup at the Red Bull Ring track, where the last year he secure his maiden victory in the Porsche’s international one-make series. The Martinet by Alméras racer swept to the front in the first lap and controlled the 32-strong field over the remainder of the race. At the flag, he held a 0.646-second lead over BWT Lechner Racing‘s Dylan Pereira, who had taken up the race from pole position. Third place was enough for Larry ten Voorde (Team GP Elite) to defend his championship lead.

The second Spielberg race within two weeks got off to a turbulent start. Taking up the race from the second grid spot, Evans overtook Pereira shortly after the start when he had to veer into the run-off area in a corner. While Evans and Pereira turned their laps at a respectful distance, a fierce fight for third place unfolded behind them. Defending champion ten Voorde, Porsche Junior Ayancan Güven (BWT Lechner Racing) and Laurin Heinrich (Nebulus Racing by Huber) battled amongst themselves in almost every corner and also switched positions. Güven overtook ten Voorde only to have a puncture knock him out of the three-way fight during the penultimate lap. Ten Voorde managed to fend off Heinrich, who ultimately took the flag in fourth place and won the rookie classification.

The ProAm category went to the Monegasque Nicolas Misslin (Lechner Racing Middle East), who shared the podium with Stéphane Denoual (Pierre Martinet by Alméras) and the defending ProAm champion Roar Lindland (Nebulus Racing by Huber). Hollywood star Michael Fassbender finished the race on 24th as a guest driver.

Round four of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will be contested at the Hungaroring on 26/28 July.
