Closer to perfection

24H Le Mans & WEC

Globally, there is probably no single motorsport event with a higher reputation than the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the most important race in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). First held in 1923, it is not only one of the oldest motorsport events in the world, but has also produced countless dramas and unforgettable winners and losers over the years.

Having been responsible for Porsche's factory GT entries since 2013, Manthey is now taking on the challenge in the GT category with 2 Porsche 911 GT3s from 2024. Our goal is to be able to enter Manthey into the history books of the WEC and the 24 Hours of Le Mans as our own team for the first time.

Team & Driver


Manthey EMA #91 
- Richard Lietz (AT)
- Morris Schuring (NL)
- Yasser Shahin (AU)

The partnership between Manthey and EMA Motorsport, which was crowned with the championship title in the 2023 DTM, will be further expanded with the entry in the FIA WEC. Last year, in addition to the two Porsche 911 GT3 R in the DTM, the team entered one car each in the 12 Hours of Bathurst, the 24 Hours of Spa, the Nürburgring Endurance Series and the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring. Porsche works driver Richard Lietz, Porsche Carrera Cup Germany and Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup driver Morris Schuring as well as two-time GT World Challenge Australia champion Yasser Shahin will sit behind the wheel of nine-eleven with starting number 91. Austrian Lietz is an experienced WEC driver, having driven one of the cars entered by Porsche and Manthey from 2013 to 2023. One of their recent successes together was winning the GTE-Pro class at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2022. Porsche-experienced drivers Yasser Shahin, who claimed several successes in last year's GT World Challenge Australia season with EMA Motorsport, and Morris Schuring, the youngest race winner in the history of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, complete the cockpit line-up.

Manthey Pure Rxcing #92
- Klaus Bachler (AT)
- Alex Malykhin (UK)
- Joel Sturm (DE)

The Lithuanian Pure Rxcing team is known for its entries in the Asian Le Mans Series, the GT World Challenge Europe, the 24 Hours of Spa and the 6 Hours of Abu Dhabi in 2023. Last year, Manthey supported the team with engineers and mechanics for numerous races. With the start in the WEC under the banner of Manthey PureRxcing, the collaboration has now been extended. The driver trio of Klaus Bachler, Alex Malykhin and Joel Sturm have already competed together for the team in the 24 Hours of Spa and the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup. In addition to a class victory in the Sprint Cup by Alex Malykhin, they also won the overall GT World Challenge Europe Bronze Teams classification in 2023. Malykhin and Sturm were also behind the wheel for Pure Rxcing in the overall victory of the Abu Dhabi Six Hours and in the Asian Le Mans Series. Porsche contract driver Klaus Bachler has already covered many kilometres in the FIA WEC, most recently on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife as well as in the IMSA.
