MEYLE Performance: the 2019 Motorsport Season

MEYLE Performance: the 2019 Motorsport Season

T3 Motorsport GmbH

Together with MEYLE as a sponsor, T3 Motorsport will start with an Audi R8 LMS GT3 for the first time in the "League of Super Sports Cars". The partnership goes far beyond pure sponsoring: MEYLE engineers will support the team from Dresden around the young drivers Maximilian Paul (Dresden, Germany) and Simon Reicher (Kirchberg, Austria) in their premiere season of the ADAC GT Masters with their technical know-how. In addition to sporting success, another top priority of the T3 Motorsport Team is the promotion of young talents. Thus, the junior development programme can rely on the expert support from Hamburg. Rick Hartmann (Kamenz, Germany) will also be chasing points with a VW Scirocco Cup for the team from Dresden in the 24H Series and Tim Hendrikx (Augsburg, Germany) will be driving an Audi RS3 LMS TCR in the DMV NES 500.

Racing driver:

Maximilian Paul, 19 years old, Dresden (Germany)  

Maximilian Paul is one of the world's most successful kart drivers from Germany. Last season he drove in the touring car Audi R8 LMS Cup. The driver from Dresden is one of the drivers sponsored by the ADAC Sport Foundation for the 2019 season. Paul and his team-mate Reicher have known each other since their beginnings in karting and complement each other perfectly.

Simon Reicher, 19 years old, Kirchberg (Austria)    

Simon Reicher has had the racing driver virus firmly under control since 2008. The Austrian started his racing career in karting at the age of eight. Reicher gained his first experience in an Audi R8 LMS in the 24H Series. Today he is driving for the junior team T3 Motorsport in the ADAC GT Masters for podium places.

ADAC GT Masters

In the 13th season of the "League of Super Sports Cars," 19 international teams with 31 GT3 sports cars from eight brands will compete. The drivers start with different vehicle concepts with front, centre and rear engines. A balance-of-performance system used worldwide ensures that everybody has equal opportunities. In a total of 14 races held on seven race weekends, young talents, drivers with Formula 1, WEC and DTM experience compete for championship points in two 60-minute races including driver changes. In 2019, T3 Motorsport will enter the race with the driver duo Maximilian Paul and Simon Reicher in an Audi R8 GT3 LMS. In addition to the driver and team standings, the duo will compete for important points in the Pirelli Junior classification for young talents. The ADAC GT4 Germany, ADAC TCR Germany, ADAC Formula 4 and the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany round off the ADAC GT Masters weekends. Motorsport fans can also look forward to a great supporting programme. SPORT1 broadcasts all races live and in full length.
