“This is exciting, simple as that. The prospect of racing with a team built around a group of my best friends in the inaugural season of Porsche Carrera Cup North America is unreal.
As a young team we enter the world of professional racing with humility. We will be up against some of the best in the world, a challenge that motivates us all. We are here to compete.”
Leh Keen, Driver, No. 12 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car
“I am so happy Porsche has decided to bring Carrera Cup to the States. It’s a great opportunity for my career to come back to Professional racing with my friends at 311RS Motorsport and in the Porsche GT3 Cup platform. There are a lot of familiar pieces to this program for me so I expect to hit the ground running. 311RS Motorsport has a nice history with the 911 GT3 platform and it’s awesome to see them step up to another level fresh off their success in SRO last year.
The inaugural Porsche Carrera Cup North America calendar looks amazing with some of the best tracks in North America. It looks like Porsche has taken the new 992 GT3 Cup to a new level. I can’t wait to see the new car in the flesh and go wheel to wheel with 20+ of them soon!”
Team Principal, Jeff Majkrzak
“Definitely a bucket list year for me! I get to share the inaugural Porsche Carrera Cup North America grid with my 992 GT3 Cup teammates of Leh Keen and Ryan Gates. I will consider it a win if I don’t get lapped by these guys!”
Team Principal, Bruce Gates
“We are honored to be racing in the inaugural Porsche Carrera Cup North America series.”
