The ‘Temple of Speed’ – Monza’s iconic circuit in the park, just north of Milan – played host to the final rounds of the 2021 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and provided a worthy backdrop for Larry ten Voorde to secure his second championship title.
It would be a big weekend for the 32 cars arriving at Monza for the finale of the 2021 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. The Porsche 911GT3 Cup 992 car, new for this year, had proved a great success and would be able to unleash all of its 510PS around one of the fastest circuits on the championship calendar.
From the outset, all eyes were understandably on #25 Larry ten Voorde (NLD/Team GP Elite), who had a significant, but not unassailable, 25-point advantage in the championship standings. His closest rival was #20 Jaxon Evans (NZL/Martinet by Alméras), who would have to put memories of two dismal finishes – tenth place at Zandvoort, and twelfth at Spa – behind him, if he were to out-score the Dutchman in the standings.
But whatever the outcome of the race: with their different levels of driving skills and experience, fair sportsmanship and committed competitiveness, all the participants in the Porsche Supercup can consider themselves winners in 2021.
