"In 2024 we will be competing again in the ADAC GT4 Germany, Nürburgring Endurance Series and GTC Race and the GT4 European Series Powered by RAFA Racing Club," announces Team Principal Daniel Schellhaas.
As in 2023, the racing team from Ofterdingen plans to enter at least three Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport in GT4 European Series for 2024. "In the GT4 European Series, our goal is to compete for victories and the championship in the Silver and Pro-Am classes with strong driver pairings," says Schellhaas.
For race preparation, the drivers have access to the in-house race simulator at the team headquarters and the ideal set-ups are drawn up together with the race engineers even before they head to the race track. There, the optimum strategies are developed during the test and race events in the specially equipped race trailer with up to twelve workstations for data and video analysis. The drivers were already able to benefit from the added value offered by W&S Motorsport in 2023. The team plans to further expand this service in a newly created driver academy in combination with fitness and media workshops and to support young drivers even more specifically on their way to becoming professional racing drivers.
W&S Motorsport also has a broad network and extensive contacts with other teams in higher-class racing series such as GT3. This means that juniors can gain their first experience in a GT4 car after karting and recommend themselves for a GT3 cockpit through good training. W&S Motorsport not only offers a GT4 racing cockpit, but can also act as an interface to other teams to help them make the step to becoming a professional driver and one day establish themselves as a works driver.
"We are specialised in the use of Porsche Caymans and know the cars inside out. That's part of the secret of our success," says Team Principal Patrick Wagner. "We currently have six Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport, which we prepare in our workshop in Ofterdingen for racing in national and international championships."
"We are not aiming to move to higher classes, but would like to continue our already high and professional level in GT4 and make adjustments if necessary, in order to have in 2024 the most successful season since W&S Motorsport was founded", concludes Daniel Schellhaas.
