Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup: with Standox in the title race
The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is one of the most renowned brand trophies in international motor racing. Together with André Koch AG, Standox is in the middle of the race for the coveted trophy as a cooperation partner of the Swiss “Fach Auto Tech” team.
This was a collaboration that almost led to first place on the podium last season: In 2018, British racing driver Nick Yelloly secured second place for Fach Auto Tech in the world championships. The team around team boss Alex Fach wants to give their all in 2019 too — and they will once again with the Standox banner and the logo of André Koch AG on the bonnet. Driving a powerful Porsche 911, the Supercup drivers will compete in ten races, all of which are support events for Formula One races. Highlights of the season include the city race in the glamorous Principality of Monaco in May and the season finale in Mexico City in October, where the drivers will compete against each other in two races.
At the team presentation in late March, the quick Swiss team introduced its new drivers for the 2019 season. In addition to the promising youngster Jaxon Evans from New Zealand, Frenchman Florian Latorre (Porsche Supercup Rookie Champion in 2018) and the Thai driver Kantadhee Kusiri will start the tile race for Fach Auto Tech. This year, Howa GmbH—which, like Fach Auto Tech, is based in Sattel in the canton of Schwyz—once again took on the task of painting the vehicles. To do this, the painting professionals rely exclusively on technologically first-class Standox materials.
“Alex Fach has put together a team that is characterised by two things in particular: professionalism and passion. We can identify with that 100 percent.”
The cooperation was founded in 2017 by Enzo Santarsiero, CEO of Swiss Standox partner André Koch AG. “The sponsorship fits perfectly with the Standox brand”, says Olaf Adamek, Brand Manager EMEA at Standox. “Alex Fach has put together a team that is characterised by two things in particular: professionalism and passion.
