Rutronik Racing relies on a highl-class trio for the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Endurance and Sprint Cups.

Rutronik Racing is setting the next mark for the season. In addition to the bronze vehicle, the successful team is also attacking in the Pro class in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS. In the Endurance and Sprint Cup, the Porsche 911 GT3 R with the starting number #96 is supposed to fight for the best positions. The top-class driver line-up gives hope for success in the proven Rutronik Racing design.


Porsche contract drivers Patric Niederhauser and Sven Müller take their place behind the wheel of the car in the Sprint Cup. Experienced Julien Andlauer completes the professional trio for the five long-distance races. The top field of the championship is known for its internationally successful drivers, but a constellation like the one of Rutronik Racing is certainly something special in this field.


Klaus Graf, team boss Rutronik Racing: “We are entering our second season with our Porsche 911 GT3R with a very strong driver line-up for the Fanatec GT World Europe Challenge. All three drivers have already successfully competed in races with Rutronik Racing in the past. With the return of Patric Niederhauser, we would like to build on the successes of the past together. With Patric and Sven we have two very fast and experienced GT drivers in both the Sprint and Endurance classifications. They are the constant, which is reinforced by the support of Julien in the endurance races, who also knows the team very well. I am very confident that we will fight for race wins and championship titles."


Patric Niederhauser: “I’m really looking forward to competing in the GTWC together with Rutronik Racing. This year I'm facing many new challenges and I'm even more pleased to be able to drive in a team with which I share many great memories and successes and with whom I feel at home. Together with Julien we were already able to celebrate a podium at the NLS and I always had exciting duels with Sven on the track for many years. They are two really fast teammates and I can't wait to fight for victories together in the GTWC."


Sven Müller: “I am very pleased to be competing with Rutronik. We have worked together a few times in the past and got along really well on a personal level. Now driving the entire GTWC with a full professional crew gives you extra motivation! With Julien in the team for the endurance races we have a super fast man. But I'm also really looking forward to getting to know Patric and driving the entire championship with him. The fact that we are both Swiss is a great story!”
