Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli points leaders Earl Bamber and Laurens Vanthoor will drive a Dinamic Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 R in the Kyalami 9 Hour.
The Porsche factory duo, who seized the IGTC championship lead with victory alongside Nick Tandy in the Total 24 Hours of Spa, will team up with 2018-19 FIA World Endurance GT champion Kevin Estre for the title-deciding round.
Bamber and Vanthoor hold a one-point advantage over their fellow Porsche drivers Mathieu Jaminet, Matt Campbell and Patrick Pilet who are with GPX Racing for Kyalami.
The points-leading pair contested Bathurst with Bamber’s eponymous team and Spa with ROWE Racing, while Porsche elected to skip the Indianapolis 8 Hour in between.
Bamber, Vanthoor and Craig Lowndes finished ninth at Bathurst, scoring seventh-place IGTC points, before Tandy’s masterful rain drive enabled them to win outright at Spa.
Estre, who will be Bamber and Vanthoor’s third different IGTC co-driver this season, is set for his second series appearance of the year after representing KCMG in Belgium.
Dinamic Motorsport was a leading force in GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Endurance Cup this season and ended up running Porsche’s highest-placed crew.
Its drivers Christian Engelhart, Sven Mueller and Matteo Cairoli won the 6 Hours of the Nürburgring on their way to finishing third in the championship standings.
The Italian squad, which graduated to international GT3 competition in 2019, also fielded a Porsche for Bamber, Vanthoor and Campbell in last year’s Kyalami 9 Hour.
The trio finished eighth while Tandy, Jaminet and drivers’ champion Dennis Olsen took victory in a Porsche run by Frikadelli Racing Team.
In addition to having the top-two crews in the drivers’ standings, Porsche also leads the IGTC manufacturers’ championship following ROWE Racing’s victory at Spa.
