The team behind the Zimmermann Porsche: Mathol Racing

The partnership between Zimmermann, the manufacturer of brake components, and Mathol Racing started five years ago. As part of the cooperation, a Porsche Cayman S has been used in the V6 class in the VLN and at the 24h race on the famous Nürburgring-Nordschleife.

Mathol Racing now looks back on a successful past. In 2017 the team celebrated its 10-year anniversary at the Nürburgring. Team boss Matthias Holle: “How time flies. At the beginning I did not think my engagement would take that long.”

The businessman from Hamm in Westphalia was hooked to motorsport by Rallye-legend Walter Röhrl, when they met at a driver training. After several guest performance with various teams at the Nürburgring, Holle decided to build his own team for the VLN. “Initially, I competed with a very small team that used a Honda S 2000 in the Japanese manufacturer's brand cup. At first it was just a matter of driving. Motorsport was my hobby." With the founding of Mathol Racing, the project took a different direction a little later.

„Initially I was still behind the wheel myself, but as we used more and more cars I gave up on racing. We have continuously expanded.”Most recently, cars from the GT4 and V6 class were the spearheads of the team. The Zimmermann-Porsche Cayman S is one of the fastest vehicles in class V6. For the manufacturer of brake components, motorsport is the ideal challenge to test the suitability of parts developed for the series.

Holle: "In the meantime, we are established in the VLN. The team has eight permanent employees. On the race weekends, depending on the number of vehicles used, a few more people will be added. I don't miss driving anymore, I enjoy organizing the team." However, the requirements have changed over time. It is no longer just a question of preparing and using the cars. Today, a team is a service providers who has to do an optimal job for their drivers."

In the 2019 season, Zimmermann and Mathol Racing will strengthen their joint commitment. The Porsche Cayman in the V6 class is driven by chassis specialist Wolfgang Weber, two-time RCN champion Alexander Fielenbach and fast Argentine Roberto Falcon. Our mission: to win as many class and rating group victories as possible in the VLN production cars.
