Nick Heidfeld to compete in Hockenheim Porsche Supercup German Grand Prix support round

Nick Heidfeld, 2012Former Formula 1 driver Nick Heidfeld will make his debut in the Porsche Supercup during the German Grand Prix weekend at Hockenheim.

Heidfeld, who finished in fourth place in the Le Mans 24 Hours last month, will join the Formula 1 support series for the 20-22 July event following an invitation from Porsche AG.

The German will drive a 450HP Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car in what will be the seventh round of the championship.

"It is a great new challenge for me to compete against all the Porsche specialists in the Supercup," said Heidfeld. "I'm aware that it won't be easy to match the pace of the frontrunners, and that's exactly what makes this task so exciting.

"In Le Mans I again experienced first-hand just how much the Porsche brand fascinates people. I personally have two Porsche cars in my collection. This race outing will undoubtedly be a very special experience."
