Norway’s #dennisolsen and Australian #mattcampbell will be supported in the future as #porsche Young Professionals in international GT #racing. The #porsche Young Professionals squad also includes #matteocairoli from Italy and Frenchman #mathieujaminet. #thomaspreining from Austria makes the step up from the #porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland to the #porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, where he will be supported as a #porsche Junior. #porsche Motorsport will also support #julienandlauer as a new #porsche Junior. The Frenchman came through an international trial and will also race in the #porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in 2018. “All our young #racing drivers have developed superbly in 2017. The one-make cups, in particular, have proven to be an outstanding springboard for the #porsche Juniors,” said Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars.

Olsen won the title in the 2017 #porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. The 21-year-old from the Konrad Motorsport team demonstrated a particularly impressive level of consistency. As well as six race wins, the young driver from Våler in Norway also finished on the podium in 12 of the season’s 14 races. Olsen also demonstrated his talent in the international #porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, in which he drove for the Walter Lechner #racing Team. The youngster was victorious at the iconic British circuit in Silverstone, as well as the double-header at Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium). He ended the season second in the championship and was crowned top rookie. Having been supported for two years as a #porsche Junior, Olsen can now look forward to outings on the international GT customer #racing scene as a #porsche Young Professional in 2018.
