KCMG has confirmed a return to the Nordschleife in 2021 fielding a single Porsche 911 GT3-R in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring and select Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie races.

The Hong Kong-based squad ran two cars at the German endurance race last year, however, have scaled down to a single entry for the first three NLS rounds and the N24.

Alexandre Imperatori, Edoardo Liberati, and Josh Burdon continue on with the team as part of the driving lineup, but will also be joined by Porsche stalwart Marco Holzer.

Holzer has six appearances at the Green Hell classic under his belt, with the German having been part of Huber Motorsport’s Pro-Am class-winning combination last year.

Due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, KCMG has been forced to limit its efforts to a single car after last year’s two-pronged attack on the Nürburgring.

“2020 was a difficult year for racing during the pandemic, but we’re confident our hard work over the winter means KCMG will be better than ever in 2021,” said team manager Matt Howson.

“I’m extremely happy to continue our relationship with Porsche at the Nürburgring, and with an immensely strong driver line-up in Alex, Edo and Josh, further strengthened by the arrival of an N24 class winner and Porsche veteran in Marco Holzer. We’re ready for the challenge ahead.”

Holzer added: “I´m very happy to join KCMG for the NLS & Nürburgring 24 in 2021.

“It’s really cool to be racing the Porsche 911 GT3 R on one of my favorite race tracks in the world.

“I’m looking forward to working with the team and being back behind the wheel soon.”

KCMG’s Nürburgring program kicks off with the NLS pre-season test on Mar. 1, followed by the first race on March 27.

The 2021 ADAC TOTAL 24h-Rennen Nürburgring is scheduled to take place from June 3-6.
