The Fossa man will, as usual, share his Proton Competition Porsche 911 RSR with professional racers Richard Lietz and Felipe Fernández Laser.

Proton Competition is fighting for the title. The team is fielding two Porsche 911 RSR in the highly competitive GTE class and aims to win the championship with its second win of the season after the opening success at Le Castellet. 

“ I know from my team-mates that Portimao is a good track for the 911 RSR , If the team and the crew of the 77 had the title in their pockets in the end and we landed on the podium, it would be a great end to the season,” he said.

Ahead of the four-hour race at the Portuguese track, Proton Competition was in second place in both the team and driver standings.
