Huber Motorsport has announced its drivers for the upcoming ADAC Total 24h-Rennen. Former Porsche works driver Wolf Henzler joins #25 Porsche 991.2 GT3R regulars Marco Holzer, Patrick Kolb and Lorenzo Rocco di Torrepadula for the team’s maiden GT3 assault in the Nürburgring 24 Hours.
With three VLN Nürburgring Endurance Series GT3 Pro-Am class victories to their name in 2020, the trio of Kolb, Holzer and Rocco di Torrepadula is joined by Wolf Henzler for the Eifel classic. Henzler and Holzer are no strangers to each other as they competed together for many years most notably in the USA where the Germans won Petit Le Mans with Falken Motorsports and most recently were entered for a partial season in the 2019 Blancpain GT World Challenge America with Alegra Motorsports.
Henzler is a veteran Porsche pilot whose last appearance in the Nürburgring 24 Hours came in 2018 with Frikadelli Racing. Other teams the German raced for include Manthey Racing and Falken Motorsports. In addition to Petit Le Mans glory, Henzler can also boast victories in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and a GT2 championship title in the American Le Mans Series putting Huber Motorsport in a strong position to continue its Nürburgring successes this season.
“Due to the intensive preparations in the [NES] season to date, we have a confident outlook towards this year’s 24-hour race,” team manager Reinhard Huber said. “We are highly motivated; acknowledging the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring to be one of the most demanding races in the world.”
A new design
Huber Motorsport also presented a new look for the 24-hour race, bringing a Porsche with two faces.
The Nürburgring 24 Hours will take place on 26-27th September. Due to the team’s previous success in the Nürburgring Endurance Series a place in the Top 18 Shoot-Out, held on Friday before the race, is already secured.
