Vice-champion Pro-Am in 2020, Clément Mateu is back in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup this year with higher ambitions!
Clément Mateu is back for a third consecutive season in the highly competitive Porsche single-brand cup, which takes place alongside the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
The HEXIS driver can look back on a successful 2020 season with six Pro-Am podiums in eight races. Clément Mateu did not take long to make his mark last year, climbing onto the podium in Austria, the first of a long series. He then went on to take five more podiums at the Hungaroring, Silverstone (double podium), Barcelona and Monza, including two second places at Silverstone and Barcelona.
Third season with the Martinet by Alméras team
The Montpellier native intends to quench his thirst for victory in 2021 by taming the 510 horsepower of his new Porsche 992 GT3 Cup, entered by Martinet by Alméras. The team founded by Pierre Martinet and Philippe Alméras has a wealth of experience and first-class results.
Present at all levels, the Herault-based team can boast a successful record in 2020 with two victories overall, two victories in Rookies and six victories in Pro-Am, for a total of 28 podiums in all classes combined!
The Pro-Am title of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is clearly the goal of Clément Mateu. His quest for the title will begin on the mythical Monaco circuit, from 20 to 23 May.
