A true Porsche Supercup and Porsche Carrera Cup specialist, Matteo Cairoli was at the wheel of the #88 Porsche 911 RSR from Proton Competition sharing the car with Gianluca Roda and Christian Ried.
Matteo Cairoli was the fastest in the first practice session and the second one as well with the Porsche. On Saturday afternoon he took a sensational pole position against big names and more experienced drivers in GTE racing.
On race day, the Italian ace had perfect stints and pushed very hard with consistant lap times and without doing any mistake. At the end of the four-hour race he was fifth behind a trio of Ferraris and the fourth placed Aston Martin.
At the Red Bull Ring, a true GTE star was born and we hope to see Matteo Cairoli in more European Le Mans Series events and why not in FIA World Endurance Championship or/and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championships events as well.
