Turkish driver will compete in 2020 Supercup with additional support
Ayhancan Güven has been named the new Porsche Junior. The 21 year old beat a competitive field of 11 other candidates from different Carrera Cup regions for the prestigious programme, which includes a 225,000 Euro sponsorship package from Porsche.
Güven came out on top after a three-day selection process at the Portimao race track in Portugal, and will join the New Zealander Jaxon Evans as a Porsche Junior after Evans began the two-year programme in 2019. Both Juniors will receive support at all race weekends in the forthcoming Supercup campaign from former Porsche works driver Sascha Maassen, with media seminars, mental fitness training and sports medicine all part of the package, aiming to fast track talented drivers through Porsche’s motorsport pyramid.
Güven finished 2nd in the Supercup last year and has been Porsche Carrera Cup France champion for the last two seasons.
