GPX Racing and Earl Bamber Motorsport will represent Porsche in November’s Kyalami 9 Hour, with the two endurance race-winning squads likely to field all-factory lineups in the Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli season finale.
Sportscar365 has learned that the Dubai-based GPX operation, which claimed victory in the Total 24 Hours of Spa, has confirmed a Porsche 911 GT3 R entry with a yet-to-be-announced pro driver lineup.
It’s believed Porsche will again allocate a factory lineup to the team, likely one of the German manufacturer’s full-season IGTC trios that have contested each round of the global GT3 championship.
Richard Lietz, Kevin Estre and Michael Christensen claimed victory in the Gulf-liveried Porsche at Spa although are not part of the German manufacturer’s full-season IGTC roster.
Porsche’s second season-long lineup is likely to again go to EBM, which as revealed by Sportscar365, is also planning to contest the South African enduro.
The trio of Dirk Werner, Dennis Olsen and Matt Campbell, who won the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour for EBM, currently sit fifth in the IGTC drivers’ championship, ten points behind leader Maxi Buhk.
Porsche’s other lineup of Mathieu Jaminet, Romain Dumas and Sven Mueller are further back in the running due to non-points finishes at Bathurst and last month’s Suzuka 10 Hours.
