“Motorsport meets tennis”

Porsche works drivers visit the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix

Stuttgart. Motorsport delegation in the Porsche Arena – under the “Motorsport meets tennis” motto, Porsche works drivers from various series were guests of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.
Led by the Vice President Porsche Motorsport, Thomas Laudenbach, a declared tennis fan, the Porsche works drivers André Lotterer (Formula E/WEC), Thomas Preining (DTM), Michael Christensen (WEC), Kevin Estre (WEC) and Joshua Rogers (e-sports) all came along to the Porsche Arena for a day full of sport.
At the long-standing tournament with the world’s top women’s tennis players, they not only watched thrilling matches on Centre Court. In the Porsche Playground, Joshua Rogers also displayed his prowess as an e-sportsman on the Porsche Simulator. He and Kevin Estre also went flat out posting fast times in the Driving Challenge, a much-loved annual competition for the players. “Though we were quicker than the tennis stars’ best times, we had to work hard to beat them,” said Joshua Rogers when acknowledging the tennis ladies’ performances. And Kevin Estre added: “The challenge was lots and lots of fun.”
After a tour behind the scenes with interesting insights into the long-standing Stuttgart tournament, the motorsport delegation from Weissach watched the thrilling first round victory of the local hero Tatjana Maria. They also took in the match immediately afterwards involving the Porsche Brand Ambassador Emma Raducanu from one of the courtside boxes.
“I’m a huge tennis fan and totally thrilled by the event,” said André Lotterer, “The sporting excellence and the whole organisation are really impressive. I’ll definitely be back.”
