Markus Pommer has singed on with Super Nova for an attempt at Auto GP honours at Marrakech this weekend.
The German ran strongly at last week’s two day test at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, ending the second day 2nd in the times behind Sam DeJonghe.
A former Formula Two and Porsche Supercup competitor, Pommer comes to the Auto GP World Series with some pedigree, having claimed promising results in both categories.
Upon his arrival with the Super Nova team, the 23-year-old said; “I felt immediately comfortable […] and very much enjoyed driving the car – it has good downforce and plenty of power and suited my driving style well.”
Pommer will not have had much preparation time leading in to this weekend’s opening round at Marrakech; however the Heilbronn native will hoping to alleviate that worry during the build-up to the race. “I am looking forward to my first time in Marrakech, a street circuit with fast corners will be a lot of fun and I am feeling confident going into the weekend. I have never been there so will be spending some time on the simulator to get to grips with it.”
With only five day until the opening practice session in Morocco, Pommer’s announcement brings the total of Auto GP drivers to just nine. Expect a number of one-off deals to be announced in the coming days.
At this point, it is still unclear just how long Pommer’s deal with Super Nova is for.
