Marvin Klein simply unbeatable

Press release, April 19, 2022

The Coupes de Pâques meeting, traditionally held over the Easter weekend at the Nogaro race track, played host to the start of the 2022 season of the Porsche Carrera Cup France. Defending champion Marvin Klein (CLRT) claimed both pole positions, which he then converted into two dominant race wins. Behind Klein, the remaining podium places in race 1 were taken by Alessandro Ghiretti (Martinet by Alméras) and Dorian Boccolacci (Martinet by Alméras), whilst in the second race Klein was once again joined on the podium by Alessandro Ghiretti (Martinet by Alméras), again on his shirt-tails, with Evan Spenle (CLRT) finishing third. Alexander Tauscher (Allied-Racing) made a promising start to his career in the French Porsche Carrera Cup. The young German finished an impressive fourth overall on day one.

In Monday’s race, Mathieu Martins (Martinet by Alméras), winner of the 2022 Porsche Carrera Cup France Junior Programme, also made a strong debut to his career in the series, grabbing a top-five finish. A serious contender for the Pro-Am title, having finished as runner-up in 2021, Jérôme Boullery (Racing Technology) had the perfect opening weekend, winning both races in the class. Sébastien Dussolliet (ABM) enjoyed similar success in the AM class, moving top of the standings with two race wins in south-western France. After visiting this “classic” French track, the 2022 Porsche Carrera Cup France drivers head north at the start of May to tackle the iconic Spa-Francorchamps circuit, which is also hosting round two of the World Endurance Championship (WEC), for a two-race weekend.
