Evans Returns to Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Championship in Austria

Jul 7, 2022 | News

Jaxon Evans will be back in the Porsche 992 GT3 Cup Car this weekend when he takes on Round 4 of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Championship at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.

Evans is no stranger to Cup Cars, having placed 2nd the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Championship in 2021 and raced in the category for a number of years prior to his 2nd place championship finish.

The Championship supports the Austrian Grand Prix F1 event, and cars will be on track for Free Practice on Friday, Qualifying on Saturday, and an 18-lap Race on Sunday. Evans will be racing for team CLRT in the single-driver sprint race.

The Red Bull Ring has been a happy hunting ground for Evans in the past, having won at the track on two different occasions.

“I love racing at the Red Bull Ring. I’ve raced there many times and have enjoyed much success,” said Evans.

“My first Supercup race win came at the Red Bull Ring in 2020, and then I backed it up with another win last year in 2021.”

Evans is hoping for a top-five finish this weekend but is well aware of the competitive nature of the Supercup Championship and isn’t underestimating the task ahead.

“It’s going to be a tough weekend. Supercup is a very competitive championship, and having only a single 45-minute practice session to get back in the groove of driving the 992 GT3 Cup Car is a tough ask.

“I’m going up against guys that have been in the car nearly every weekend since the beginning of the race season. But I’m confident in the track knowledge I have and past success, so we should be able to push for a top 10 finish.

“Ultimately, I’d feel satisfied with a top five result, and I think that’s achievable,” said Evans.
