Preining crowned German champion
BWT Lechner Racing’s Thomas Preining secured the title of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. The 20-year-old Austrian Porsche Junior driver claimed at Hockenheim his tenth victory of the season in the nation one-make series and became champion.
“After my disappointing start to the season at Oschersleben, I almost gave up on the championship. Now I’m champion. That makes me incredibly proud. I bet I’m the happiest person in the paddock this weekend,” said Preining.
Preining took home the championship trophy with 279 points. His team mate Michael Ammermüller finished as vice champion with 242 points. Third place went to Team Deutsche Post by Project 1 driver Larry ten Voorde, who earned 170 points.
