Battle of champions in Monaco – Larry ten Voorde wins.

The race in Monaco is one of the season's highlights, especially with anniversary fever in the air. To add to the excitement this year: Two Supercup champions were competing, both of whom have already claimed victories here: Larry Ten Voorde and Michael Ammermüller. The atmosphere was electric.

In practice for Race 2 of the 2022 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season, #4 Michael Ammermüller (GER/SSR Huber Racing), series champion from 2017 to 2019, showed that he is getting more and more comfortable with the new, 375 kW (515 hp) Cup nine-eleven by achieving best practice time ahead of the reigning Supercup champion #25 Larry ten Voorde (NLD/Team GP Elite). In the qualifying on Friday, however, ten Voorde countered ice-cold and took pole.

In bright sunshine, the race weekend got off to a bumpy start: #20 Jaap van Lagen (NLD/Martinet by Alméras), 2015 winner of the traditional race in the Principality, leaked oil over the asphalt during the first practice lap. This was the undoing of ProAm #23 Aaron Mason (GBR/Pierre Martinet by Alméras), who skidded in the tunnel on the oil track and ended up on the barrier. A lengthy red phase was the consequence, costing valuable practice time. Mason, of all people, did not achieve the required minimum lap time in qualifying and was not allowed to start the race – a pitch-black weekend for the Briton.

The youngsters, on the other hand, put in a strong performance in the battle for the front grid positions. These prove decisive in determining a race win on the tight street circuit. #19 Dorian Boccolacci (FRA/Martinet by Alméras), who knows Monaco well from his time in the Single Seater, secured P2 ahead of Porsche Junior #3 Laurin Heinrich (GER/SSR Huber Racing) and #5 Dylan Pereira (LUX/BWT Lechner Racing). Last year's Rookie #6 Harry King (GBR/BWT Lechner Racing) completed the starting grid's top 5 before he, like Heinrich before him, damaged his car on the barriers. It was probably no bad thing that the mechanics had the whole of Saturday to get all the cars ready for the race again.

Outstanding performance by ten Voorde at the race in the Principality.

In Sunday's race, reigning champion Larry ten Voorde was on top form and delivered a superior performance in the second round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in Monte Carlo. The Dutchman from Team GP Elite won by almost five seconds on the legendary Formula 1 race track.

It looked easy, but it wasn't.
I had to stay totally concentrated over the entire distance and tried to drive as clean a line as possible.

The duel for second place, on the other hand, was a close call: After 17 laps, Dorian Boccolacci was separated by less than half a second from German Porsche Junior Laurin Heinrich. Heinrich had seen his only overtaking opportunity of the race just after the start on approaching the Casino – but was unable to use it to his advantage. A minor slip just after the start that called for the safety car, still couldn't stop ten Voorde: Who went on to take his second Monaco victory in two years, depriving Dylan Pereira. The Luxembourger finished fourth ahead of his British teammate Harry King.

I am very impressed with the discipline with which the Supercup drivers have mastered the challenge of this difficult track.
No one risked a pointless overtaking manoeuvre.
The drivers at the front in particular didn't make a single mistake.

Dominance in the Rookie and ProAm categories. But there's still Silverstone to come.

There was also a lot going on in the Rookie and ProAm Classifications. Bastian Buus finished as the fastest Rookie in ninth place. The BWT Lechner Racing driver from Denmark celebrated his second victory in the Supercup Rookie category. Second and third in the Rookie classification were taken by #1 Morris Schuring (NLD/Huber Racing) and #9 Lorcan Hanafin (GBR/FACH AUTO TECH).
The winner's trophy in the ProAm Classification was also secured for the second time in a row by Norwegian #21 Roar Lindland from the Pierre Martinet by Alméras team, while #15 Philipp Sager (AUT/Dinamic Motorsport) and #11 Clément Mateu (FRA/CLRT) completed the top 3 in the ProAms.

On the weekend of 1 to 3 July 2022, the next stop in the international one-make cup awaits the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup drivers. And it's none other than the Formula 1 circuit at Silverstone in the UK – yet another traditional race track. We are very much looking forward to exciting racing action live from the "Home of British Motor Racing".
