Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific has formed a partnership KCMG to compete in selected rounds of the 2020 Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie (VLN), and the Nürburgring 24 Hours, with two pro line-ups.
KCMG will run two Porsche 911 GT3 R at the Nordschleife, including a full Porsche factory line-up of 2018 Nürburgring 24 Hours winners Nick Tandy, Patrick Pilet, Richard Lietz and Frédéric Makowiecki. In the second car, Romain Dumas, Alexandre Imperatori, Josh Burdon and Edoardo Liberati will drive.
“I’m pleased to confirm that we will continue our GT programme at the Nürburgring in 2020 and as part of this, we have rekindled our partnership with Porsche and will enter two new Porsche 911 GT3 R cars,” said Paul Ip, KCMG’s founder.
“KCMG’s campaign in the NLS and Nürburgring 24 Hours will be one of the major motorsport projects that we will have in the upcoming season and we are happy with the confidence and trust that Porsche has granted us. With their support and to be represented by a formidable driver line-up, the entire team is looking forward to another great challenge ahead. We will share more details about the programme as we approach the new season.”
This year KCMG competed in GT3 with Nissan. DSC believes it is set to continue with Nissan for a select IGTC programme in 2020, that is yet to be confirmed formally by the team.
The NLS begins on 21 March 2020, with the ADAC Qualification Race set for 25 April, before the Nürburgring 24 Hours on 21/24 May.
