Dinamic Motorsport is planning an expanded program that could include as many as three Porsche 911 GT3 Rs in GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup next year.

The Italian team made its GT3 debut with a single Porsche for Zaid Ashkanani, Klaus Bachler and Andrea Rizzoli in the Endurance Cup this year, winning on its first race at Monza.

It is now planning to run up to three cars in the Endurance Cup next year and one or two in the Sprint Cup, after also making one Sprint start at the Hungaroring this season.

“Probably, we will have three cars in Endurance and one or maximum two in the Sprint. One is for sure,” Dinamic sporting director Alessandro Antonelli told Sportscar365.

The program is set to include a Pro car but it’s currently unclear if any factory drivers will be included in the lineup.

Its Endurance Cup car ran in the Pro class without any Porsche-contracted drivers this year, but Dinamic did run a car for Laurens Vanthoor, Earl Bamber and Matt Campbell at last weekend’s Kyalami 9 Hour.

Antonelli says the team will most likely run one Pro car, one in either Pro-Am or Am, and a third car in an undecided class yet, but says “we hope to have two Pro cars”.

Its Sprint Cup campaign with either one or two cars is expected to focus on Pro-Am or Am Cup.

“It is not up to us, we have to talk with Porsche and they decide about Pro drivers,” Antonelli added. “Porsche will probably decide in December.”

Debut Season Achieved “More Than Expected”

Antonelli expressed surprise at Dinamic’s results in its first GT3 campaign and put down poor results at Silverstone and Paul Ricard to problems outside of its control.

“In my opinion, the season started really well in Monza,” he said.

“We were not lucky in the second and third race, because the performance was in the top ten overall but we had problems with the gearbox actuator in one race and strategy in the other one. This was just unlucky.

“In Spa, we were in the top ten and we crashed ten minutes from the end so it was not up to us.

“For the first year, we did more than what we expected. The plan is to be a little bit better next season. Maybe we will win the other four races and we will win in Monza!”
