Kellymoss, seasoned championship Porsche racing team, is excited to share a new partnership with up-and-coming Dutch racing talent Loek Hartog for the 2024 season. Hartog recently finished a stellar racing season in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and Carrera Cup Deutschland. Throughout his past five years in Porsche Carrera Cup racing, he posted progressively impressive results and has now chosen Kellymoss as the pivotal launching point of his North American racing career.
Since 2019, Hartog has made a name for himself in Europe. This includes winning the Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux title, finishing second in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland standings and becoming a title contender and race winner in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.
“We could not be more thrilled to welcome Loek to the Kellymoss team. Not only are we bringing on board a young driver with limitless potential and an incredible work ethic that pairs perfectly with our performance-driven culture at Kellymoss, we’re also pleased to be part of what we see as a shift in the balance of racing achievement in the world of motorsports,” said Victoria Thomas, CFO and co-owner, Kellymoss. “For years, we’ve seen young drivers in the States believe the necessary next step to leveling up their careers is competing in European racing series. It’s refreshing and a testament to the growth and strength of our US programs to see a driver of Loek’s caliber reverse the paradigm and take a fresh approach.”
“North America continues to draw talent from around the world. Racing here is a destination, not a second choice. Young drivers are seeing they can make a lifelong career here and Porsche Carrera Cup North America is the best platform to take that step into the arena,” confirmed Volker Holzmeyer, President and CEO, Porsche Motorsport North America. “Having a driver the caliber of Loek make Carrera Cup North America his first choice for the next step in his career is a perfect example of the success the series is enjoying. Combined with Kellymoss, this will be a strong combination from the start of the season at Sebring in March.”
Loek shared his excitement to join the team, “I am beyond excited to join Kellymoss in 2024 and proud to represent Racing for Children’s. It’s the beginning of an exciting next chapter in my career and, since meeting the team, I feel really at home and am looking forward to finding out what 2024 has in store for us.” Hartog will be a key contributor in the 2024 season as Kellymoss defends their recent 2023 Championship title and gears up to deliver another stellar racing season.
