Porsche will have a strong presence in ADAC GT Masters this year, with three customer teams fielding a total of four Porsche 911 GT3 Rs in the German-based GT3 championship.

The German manufacturer confirmed Wednesday that Porsche Young Professional Mathieu Jaminet will join Robert Renauer at the wheel of Precote Herberth Motorsport’s entry, alongside the previously confirmed lineups from KÜS Team75 Bernhard and Ring Police.

As announced in December, reigning FIA World Endurance Champion Timo Bernhard will make his series debut in his family-run team’s lead Porsche alongside fellow factory driver Kevin Estre.

Former Porsche Junior Klaus Bachler and Belgian Adrien de Leener will pilot the team’s second entry.

VLN and Nürburgring 24 squad Ring Police, meanwhile, will make its GT Masters debut, also with a Porsche for ex-factory driver Lucas Luhr and Jan-Erik Slooten.

The effort, backed by popular German automotive YouTube star “JP” sees Luhr take an ownership role within the team.

The four Porsches will make up the 37-car strong entry in the series, which sees involvement from eight different manufacturers.

    Happy to FINALLY see GT Masters section added to this site. It literally has the most diverse grid this year so not including it would have been very silly….
