Porsche Prestige and Martin Harvey commit to full season in GT3 Cup Challenge Canada
Wingho Motorsport Racing and McDonald’s Restaurant de Lanaudiere has partnered with Porsche Prestige Montreal to campaign for its 2019 Porsche GT3 Cup car in Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama.
The agreement was signed by Vice-President of Porsche Prestige Montreal, Pierre Mamarbachi, and Director of Wingho Motorsports Racing, Martin Harvey. Wingho Motorsports Racing pilot Martin Harvey will be committing to a full season with car No. 08. Harvey finished ninth overall seven years ago with the GT3 Cup Challenge Canada, and ranked first in last year’s Master Class.
Porsche Prestige had been involved with Porsche GT3 series races since the beginning of the Canadian series. The first year that the series started in Canada, Porsche Prestige driver Jean Frederic Laberge won the Platinum series championship. Porsche Prestige was also the first team to have a female driver, Valerie Chiasson, participate in the series. They are now very proud to have Martin Harvey as a driver representing the brand in the Masters series.
In addition, Renald Hamelin, Crew Chief and Team Manager for Wingho Motorsports Racing, is no stranger to Porsche racing. Hamelin is a former Canadian Champion in endurance racing with Porsche, and met Harvey at his driving school where their chemistry was first established. Now, after a few short years, their goal to win the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama championship has become a reality.
McDonald Lauaudiere owners Harvey Martin, Cedric and Jessica are very proud to support the team, and have included their 12th store supporting the team for several years now. Martin Harvey has been a driver for around 12 years, and his first time on the GT3 Cup Challenge Series was seven years ago.
“I’m very proud to drive a Porsche GT3 Cup with this series, and proud to win last year’s Master Class Challenge with Wingho Racing/Porsche Prestige,” said Harvey.
