Jaxon Evans will return for a third Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season, racing for French-based squad Team Martinet by Almeras.
Evans had his most successful Supercup season last year with BWT Lechner, claiming a maiden win and two further podiums to finish fourth in the standings. He also dovetailed a title-winning effort in that year’s French Carrera Cup Championship.
This year’s rendition of the Supercup sees the introduction of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car (Type 992), which has an increase in power over last year’s car.
Last year, Martinet by Almeras proved to be a regular front-runner. Lead driver and Porsche junior Ayhancan Güven finished third in the championship with two race wins.
For 2021, the team has already lured in the signing Formula 2 racer Dorian Boccolacci, with Evans the second confirmed driver.
“I can’t wait to get 2021 underway, the addition of a brand-new generation Cup Car essentially brings everyone back to a completely level playing field,” Evans said.
“I’m very excited to work with Team Martinet by Almeras, I’ve raced against them for the past two years in both Supercup and Carrera Cup France, so I’m now excited to join forces.
“Together, I’m confident we will have a successful year.”
The Porsche Supercup will follow the Formula 1 circus to several European events. The first is the Monaco Grand Prix on May 20-23.
