September 19th, 2022 – The 2022 Porsche Carrera Cup North America finale at Road Atlanta to feature Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich in the #12 Deluxe Porsche 992 GT3 Cup of 311RS Motorsport.
Fresh from finishing third in the 2022 Porsche Supercup championship at Monza, Laurin Heinrich traveled to USA for a two-day test at Road Atlanta in preparation for the PCCNA Finale on September 28-30th, 2022. Laurin will compete as part of Porsche’s Invitational program alongside Dimitri Dimakos in the Deluxe-sponsored Porsche 992 GT3 Cup cars under the 311RS Motorsport tent.
Ryan Gates, Team Principal at 311RS Motorsport – “We were honored to welcome Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich to Road Atlanta for two days of testing last week. He is a true testament to the quality of Porsche’s Junior Program and we are proud to have him join the team for the PCCNA finale at Road Atlanta.”
“It is bittersweet to not see Leh driving his signature red Deluxe #12 Porsche 992 GT3 Cup at his home track, but Leh has done a great job helping to install Laurin with the team and knows the #12 is in good hands. We cannot thank him enough for pouring his heart into the team these past two seasons.”
“All of us at 311RS Motorsport aim to maximize this opportunity for our drivers and partners, giving it everything we have to finish Season Two of PCCNA strong.”
Laurin Heinrich, Porsche Junior driver – “Racing my first event in the US is a dream come true for me. Together with 311RS Motorsport and Deluxe I‘m looking forward to competing in the PCCNA Finale at the end of September. I can’t imagine a better place than Road Atlanta to realize my dream.“
Leh Keen, Driver at 311RS Motorsport – “Since day 1 I feel like I’ve been more than just a driver at 311RS Motorsport. I’ve really enjoyed being a part of building the team and not only driving the car. Our original plan was for me to drive only a portion of the races this year, I actually ended up driving more races because of Laurin’s busy schedule in Europe.“
“I’m enjoying Laurin coming in driving the #12 and my duties for the team in a different way just as much as driving the car. I’m really excited for the team to bring someone in of the caliber that Laurin is. We had a wonderful test and I see why the factory has taken him under their wing. Now it’s time to really focus on executing for the race weekend.”
Greg Fordahl, Engineer at 311RS Motorsport – “It was a pleasure to work with Laurin Heinrich, the Porsche Factory Junior driver at our recent test that was conducted at Road Atlanta. Laurin was quick and incredibly consistent in all sessions that included both qualifying and race simulations. He was a great help to Dimitri Dimakos, driver of our #11 Deluxe Porsche 992 GT3 Cup by reviewing data and setup changes with him. We made great progress on our setup and feel ready for the upcoming Road Atlanta event.”
