Driver Presentation: Dylan Pereira
There will be one more young and upcoming European driver in this season’s Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East: Dylan Pereira from Luxembourg, who was a regular in the Porsche Supercup 2016 for the whole year and finished 13th in the final classification with 36 points.
The 19-year-old can look back at some Portuguese heritage. His father came from Portugal to a new country and developed into a quite successful businessman in the automotive field, which now helps him to support his son´s racing career. Pereira, who calls Ayrton Senna and Lewis Hamilton his big racing heroes, started in karts when he was only 4 years old, winning different Championships in Luxembourg and also taking part in World and European Championships, before gaining some experience in the VW Golf Cup before moving to the Porsche Supercup. Now he sees the GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East as a good chance of refining his abilities even more during wintertime in a challenging but also comfortable environment.
