A new iconic livery for the GPX Martini Racing Porsche at the 24 Hours of Spa

After having announced their participation in the 24 Hours of Spa with Michael Christensen, Richard Lietz and Kevin Estre, the same trio of drivers who won the race three years ago in their Porsche 911 GT3 R, GPX Martini Racing today presented their new livery. It marks a return to the famous Martini Racing colours on an iconic metallic grey background emblematic of the no. 21 Porsche 917 LH driven by Larrousse-Elford in the 1971 24 Hours of Le Mans. Even the no. 21 of this car has been adapted to 221 indicating a 2nd 21!

In their first season in GT3 in 2019, GPX Racing scored a sensational victory in the 24 Hours of Spa with their Porsche in the Gulf colours. The team then paid homage to the Porsche 908 victorious in the Targa Florio before announcing a new title sponsor at the beginning of 2021. Thus, GPX Martini Racing entered a car in Belgium bearing the number 22 and a livery inspired by the Porsche 917 victorious 50 years earlier in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Today, the #21 Martini Racing Porsche 917 is on display in the Porsche museum in Stuttgart. Frédéric Fatien, owner of GP Extreme, recently visited it with Pierre-Brice Mena, the group’s manager director. “The activities of the different branches of GP Extreme always have a strong link with the heritage of motor sport,“ stated the latter. “This is why we’re happy to breathe new life into the legend and communicate this passion to the fans during the 24 Hours of Spa with the complicity of Porsche.”

The 2022 edition of the 24 Hours of Spa will kick off this coming Wednesday evening with the parade of the 66 entries in the Spa town centre before the first practice sessions scheduled for the following morning.
