He had dreamed of winning in the glamour world of the rich and famous since he first contested the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup: Sean Edwards, the Konrad Motorsport pilot who lives in Monaco, celebrated his first victory on Sunday in the Principality on the Cote d’Azur. At the wheel of his 450 hp Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, based on the street-legal lightweight 911 GT3 RS sports car, he won round four of the world’s fastest international one-make race series with a 1.257-second advantage over Frenchman Kévin Estre (Hermes Attempto Racing). Third place went to his teammate Christian Engelhart (Germany).

After five overall victories in six years, the long distance classic in the Eifel did not run smoothly for the Porsche customer teams at the 40th anniversary. The best-placed Porsche 911 GT3 R, fielded by Frikadelli Racing Team, saw the flag in sixth place in front of a record 235,000 spectators. In contrast, the fastest squad in qualifying, the Wochenspiegel Team Manthey, experienced an exceptionally difficult race with a tragic final moment.
