Herberth Motorsport on a mission to defend title

Robert Renauer announced as first driver

Precote Herberth Motorsport are back in the line-up for the ADAC GT Masters in 2019 and will be aiming to defend their title with the new Porsche 911 GT3 R.

The 2018 champions will contest their seventh season in the Super Sports Car League, but with a changed driver pairing and a different livery. The identity of the new partner for established driver Robert Renauer in the Porsche 911 GT3 R is still to be announced.

"We are very happy to be taking another crack at the ADAC GT Masters this year," says Robert Renauer. "The line-up for 2019 is as high-calibre as it was last year, so defending our title is certainly not going to be an easy matter. But as a team we are extremely well set up, and we will be doing our utmost to turn ambitions into deeds."

As in previous years, Robert Renauer will be driving a Porsche 911 GT3 R. After finishing the 2013 championship as runner-up and taking the title in 2018, the 34-year-old from Jedenhofen near Munich has set himself a clear target for the 2019 season of battling for victories and podium finishes – and ultimately retaining his title.

In the 2018 season, Precote Herberth Motorsport were the most consistent team in the ADAC GT Masters, scoring points in 11 out of 14 races – a better record than anyone else in the field. It was this consistency that proved decisive in the end. On a tense final weekend, Robert Renauer and Mathieu Jaminet secured the championship by the slenderest of margins – a single point. In 2019, the outfit led by Robert and Alfred Renauer will be fielding a car sporting a new black-and-red livery and proudly bearing the start number 1.
