After setting ninth in qualifying, the Porsche Junior Julien Andlauer (martinet by ALMERAS) from France took the flag in tenth place. This race was the debut for the 18-year-old on the demanding racetrack at the Côte d’Azur. “That was an intense race with a lot of cars on the track, especially in the tight corners. The gap between the vehicles in the midfield was minimal, so I had to keep my wits about me the entire time. I would have liked to gain more ground, but unfortunately I couldn’t find a gap to overtake,” said Andlauer.

This was also the first race on the Formula 1 racetrack in Monte Carlo for the Porsche Junior Thomas Preining (BWT Lechner Racing). The youngster from Linz in Austria headed into the race from position 16 and managed to make up two places. “After the qualifying it became clear that it would be a tough race. I tried to put pressure on the drivers in front of me, but no one made a mistake,” said the 19-year-old. The best driver in the ProAm classification was Roar Lindland (N/Lechner Racing Middle East). Second place in the category went to Christof Langer (D/Fach Auto Tech) ahead of Philipp Sager (A/MRS Cup-Racing).

After two races, Ammermüller leads the championship with 38 points, followed by Yelloly and van Lagen both with 32 points. The best ProAm driver, which is the classification for amateur drivers, is Lindland with 40 points followed by Langer and Nicolas Misslin (F/Pierre martinet by ALMERAS). In the team category, Fach Auto Tech ranks first with 64 points. From 29 June to 1 July, the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will visit the Red Bull Ring in Austria, a rollercoaster circuit in Styria.
