Closer to perfection

The iconic Nordschleife and arguably the most demanding 24-hour race for man and machine captivates us year after year. As the record winner with a total of 7 overall victories, we rise to the challenge true to the motto "Everyone praises what the Nürburgring tests" and will once again give it all for our 8th overall victory from 30 May to 2 June 2024.

Manthey EMA will field a Grello Porsche in the 2024 24 Hours of the Nürburgring. Porsche drivers Kévin Estre (France), Laurens Vanthoor (Belgium), Thomas Preining (Austria) and Ayhancan Güven (Turkey) will pilot the car with starting number 911. 

With Kévin Estre and Laurens Vanthoor, two experienced and victorious Nordschleife drivers will be at the wheel of the Porsche 911 GT3 R. Estre has been an integral part of the Manthey entries on the Nordschleife since 2016. In 2021, he clinched the team's seventh overall victory at the Green Hell. The Frenchman has been part of the Porsche works driver line-up in the FIA WEC Hypercar class since 2023. Laurens Vanthoor also drives a Porsche 963 in the FIA World Endurance Championship. The Belgian celebrated his most recent race success with Manthey EMA at the Bathurst 12 Hour in early February.

Thomas Preining and Ayhancan Güven complete the driver quartet. Both drivers will also compete for Manthey EMA in the 2024 DTM season. Preining, who won the DTM Team and Drivers' Championships with Manthey EMA in 2023, also already piloted the Grello on the Nordschleife last year. Güven celebrated a successful debut with Manthey EMA at the Bathurst 12 Hour in February this year, taking victory in his first endurance race with the team.
