De Phillippi Joins Porsche Junior Program
For Connor de Phillippi, 2015 marks his third season as a Porsche Junior. He made an impressive start in 2013, clinching the rookie champion-ship in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. In 2014, he scored two podium spots and a victory in the Carrera Cup.
Porsche will support three talented young race drivers as Porsche Juniors in the 2015 racing season: Californian Connor de Phillippi, Sven Müller and Matteo Cairoli will tackle the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland for their respective teams.
American-born de Phillippi contests the Supercup for the VERVA Lechner Racing squad. In the Carrera Cup he drives for Land Motorsport. Sven Müller from Germany’s Rhineland region fights for championship points in both series for the Walter Lechner Racing team. The third junior, Italy’s Matteo Cairoli, has chosen the Project 1/Fast Track Racing Center outfit for his campaign in the two championships.
The three young race drivers in the junior program enjoy Porsche’s backing for the entire season. In addition to each receiving financial support of $216,000 for their Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup campaign, the trio attends workshops in the fields of fitness, media relations and psychological training. The former Porsche works driver Sascha Maassen is on hand at each race to coach the talented juniors.
