KCMG has aligned with Porsche for next year’s Nürburgring 24, where the Hong Kong-based team will run a factory lineup in one of its two cars.

The team will contest select rounds of the renamed Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie (previously VLN) as part of a program focused on May’s Nürburgring 24 with two Porsche 911 GT3 Rs.

One of those cars will be driven by the race’s 2018 winners Nick Tandy, Patrick Pilet, Richard Lietz and Fred Makowiecki.

Porsche factory driver Romain Dumas joins KCMG regulars Alexandre Imperatori, Josh Burdon and Edoardo Liberati in the second car.

KCMG makes the move to Porsche machinery after previously running the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, including in the Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli and Nürburgring 24 this year.

It last ran a Porsche in the 2015-16 Asian Le Mans Series season, where it claimed the GT Am class title.

“KCMG’s campaign in the NLS and Nürburgring 24 Hours will be one of the major motorsport projects that we will have in the upcoming season and we are happy with the confidence and trust that Porsche has granted us,” commented team founder Paul Ip.

“With their support and to be represented by a formidable driver lineup, the entire team is looking forward to another great challenge ahead.

“We will share more details about the program as we approach the new season.”
