Matt Campbell has taken yet another 24-hour race victory last weekend, this time at the 24H Barcelona at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Partnered with Daniel Allemann, Ralf Bohn and Alfred Renauer in the Herberth Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 R, Campbell was a late call up to the team, which completed 677 laps of the 4.655km circuit, three minutes ahead of their closest competition.
The performance was Campbell’s third 24-hour win this year following Campbell’s GTE-Am victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June with Dempsey-Proton Racing and his 991-Pro class win in January’s 24h Dubai endurance race.
“It’s great to win this race again, for the second time since 2016. Hopefully one more time next year!” said Campbell’s #911 teammate Alfred Renauer. “It was really hard. In the first half of the race, there was only one lap between us. So that was really tough to overcome, but we’re really happy!”
After winning the 2016 Porsche Wilson Security Carrera Cup Australia title, Campbell placed third in the 2017 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup series, with the Queenslander’s 2018 calendar filled with FIA WEC commitments in addition to one-off endurance races.
Campbell’s next appearance in his main 2018 racing programme, the FIA World Endurance Championship Super Season, will be at the 6 Hours of Fuji on October 14, 2018, where he will aim to extend the team’s GTE-Am lead in the class standings.
