If two names are really inseparable, then those are Porsche and Timo Bernhard: twice - in 2015 and 2017 - Bernhard won the FIA World Endurance Championship with Porsche in the LMP1 class. The solidarity between the two partners is also reflected in the dedication of Team 75 Motorsport, whose owner is the racing driver born in Homburg on 24 February 1981 and personally takes the wheel this year. Bernhard shares the cockpit of a Porsche 911 GT3 R with Porsche works driver colleague Kevin Estre, who retired from the LMP1 class after 19 wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Porsche. That provided the necessary time space for the commitment of Timo Bernhard in his own team. And what's new? The cooperation with ck-modelcars.
