The next big name for the DTM! Endurance world champion Timo Bernhard will be competing in Germany’s most popular touring car series with his own team and a Porsche 911 GT3 R in 2022.
After Team SSR Performance with two Porsches, Bernhard’s team “KÜS Team Bernhard” is now the second Porsche team on the starting grid of the DTM 2022. At the wheel: 23-year-old Porsche works driver Thomas Preining from Austria.
But that’s not all: the team of the former Le Mans winner will also compete in the “DTM Trophy” junior series with two Porsche Cayman RS Clubsport.

I know about his qualities and I am very happy that he is part of our program. “
