- Dylan Pereira from Luxembourg, Dutchman Larry ten Voorde and Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich from Germany are contenders for the title
- Roar Lindland from Norway expected to clinch his fourth Pro-Am title
- 32 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup contest the season finale this coming Sunday immediately before the Italian Grand Prix
- Autodromo Nazionale di Monza is the fastest circuit on the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup calendar
Number games also influence the tactics of Larry ten Voorde from the Netherlands. “I won six of the last seven races I contested at Monza,” states the defending champion. The most recent was the 2021 finale. “Only victory counts for me on Sunday. There’s nothing I can do about Dylan’s performance, anyway.” A win for ten Voorde, who also claimed the 2020 Supercup title, would be his second of this year’s Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich, who is 20 points behind Pereira, takes a similar view. “A lot can happen in a race on a fast circuit like Monza. Although my chances are slim, I’ve not given up. I’m determined to secure my second win of the season,” says the 20-year-old from Germany.
Roar Lindland heads to the eighth and final race feeling more relaxed than Dylan Pereira: Driving for the Pierre Martinet by Alméras outfit, the Norwegian leads the ProAm classification with a 24-point advantage. Only if Lindland fails to reach the finish line could he be caught by Frenchman Clément Mateu from the CLRT team.
The decisions in the team and rookie categories were already made at the seventh and penultimate race last weekend. In the Dutch seaside town of Zandvoort, BWT Lechner Racing from Austria secured the team title with Denmark’s Bastian Buus taking home the rookie crown.
“I’m looking forward to the finale in Monza and I’m hoping it’ll be a gripping conclusion to the 30th Supercup season. With Dylan Pereira, Larry ten Voorde and Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich we have three drivers chasing the title. These three have delivered the most consistent performances in the past seven races. Each would be a deserving Supercup champion,” comments Oliver Schwab, Project Manager of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
Autodromo Nazionale di Monza (Italy)
Opened in 1922, the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza in northern Italy is the third oldest permanent racetrack in the world. Originally, the Royal Park just outside Milan was home to a ten-kilometre-long track made up of two sections: a street circuit and an oval with banked corners. This layout resulted in very high speeds, which earned the Autodromo the name “Temple of Speed”. The circuit of today was shortened to 5.793 kilometres and is still one of the world’s fastest racetracks.
The Autodromo is regularely the venue where the highest speeds are achieved in the Supercup. In 2021, Frenchman Marvin Klein set the fastest lap with an average speed of 188.820 km/h.
