Francorchamps. The in Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium based Muhlner Motorsport Team will again enter two Porsches in the FIA European GT3 Championship in 2010. They will be running the brand new GT3 version of the 911, the GT3 R. With Frenchman Gilles Vannelet, who won the FIA European GT3 Championship in 2007, and the German Frank Schmickler, successful in both sprint and endurance racing, the crew for one Porsche 911 GT3 R is already settled.

The team are looking for a second driver for the other GT3 R to partner Dr. Jurgen Haring, one of the quickest "Bronze" drivers on the grid and a regular for Muhlner Motorsport in 2010 in the Porsche Sports Cup and the ADAC GT Masters series. The ideal partner should be not only quick but reliable because it is essential to score points in every race to be in the overall reckoning in the FIA European GT3 Championship.

With races at Silverstone (GB), Brunn (Czech Republic), Oschersleben (Germany), Paul Ricard (France), Portimao (Portugal) and Enna Pergusa (Italy) the FIA European GT3 Championship calendar once again takes in some of Europe's best tracks in 2010.

"In contrast to 2008 and 2009, this year we have been able to put our deal together very early for the 2010 FIA European GT3 Championship. Discussions are well underway for the final driver and we expect to be able to make an announcement soon. We are planning on being in the points on a regular basis and hope to be competitive in both the drivers' and teams' championships" said Bernhard Muhlner.

Alongside the 2010 FIA European GT3 Championship, Muhlner Motorsport will also be running in the Porsche Sports Cup, the UAE GT Championship and the ADAC GT Masters as well as at the Spa 24hrs.

Their first official European event of 2010 will be the FIA "Balance of Performance"tests at Paul Ricard in Southern France on 21st and 22nd February. The team will by then have already done two meetings in the Middle East in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
