2018 race plans released!
I’m delighted to say that I’ll be returning for my second year in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Championship, joining the Momo Megatron Lechner Racing Team.
Here’s the announcement from the team:
Josh Webster to join Lechner Racing for Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup 2018
It’s still a few weeks until the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season will start at Barcelona, but Lechner Racing is already pleased to welcome a new driver to it’s squad: Josh Webster will join Dylan Pereira at the Momo Megatron Lechner Racing Team.
The 24 year-old from Suffolk, Great Britain will be racing in car number 4, while Pereira will be carrying number 3 on his Porsche. Webster is the winner of the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain in 2014, he also participated in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in 2017 for the first time, finishing 7th overall with 85 points.
“I have watched Josh quite closely during last year’s events and was quite impressed by his speed and his racing abilities” Team Principal Walter Lechner states. “As a Porsche Supercup rookie, he immediately showed a lot of potential and I am sure, with all the support our well-experienced team is able to give him, he will improve even further this year and become one of the absolute top drivers in this series.”
Josh is very pleased to have joined his dream team with the Austrian squad. “Lechner Racing is the absolute benchmark in Porsche Supercup racing, they have been the dominant team for quite a few years. To now be part of this organisation makes me very happy and proud. I will do my absolute best to repay the faith and confidence that Walter has shown in me and my racing talent. I know that I can still learn a lot in such a professional team and I hope that together we will have a very successful season.”
I can’t wait to get the season underway! I ended last season with my best result of 4th place in Mexico, so with my first season of Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup under my belt, I couldn’t be in a better place to build on that experience and develop further with the support of Lechner Racing.
The first outing in the new car will be at the first Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup official test in Barcelona on the 25th/26th April. Stand by for the first photos of the number 4 machine when it hits the track for the first time.
Huge thanks to Walter Lechner and to my loyal sponsor partners, 9 Group, eve, Workflow and LA Micro who are all looking forward to another exciting race season!
