Barzani Racing TeamThe Kurdish team is currently working on its motorsport project for 2013, when they are aiming to participate in the Mobil 1 Porsche Supercup once again, the championship celebrating its venues together with Formula 1 and with a brand-new car: the 991 model.

Barzani Racing Team is working since some months ago on its racing project in the forthcoming 2013 season. A season where the Kurdish team is aiming for participating in the Mobil 1 Porsche Supercup once again, the championship organized by the Weissach-based brand and that every meeting is held with Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Barzani Racing Team has become the first team from Kurdistan to take part with a driver, Isaac Tutumlu – born in Barcelona but of Kurdish heritage and with rather experience in GT racing-, on the international stage in all motorsport history. At the moment they´re in talks with some of the most successful teams in the series but no deal hasn´t been made so far. After a 2012 season when
team and driver united their motorsport destiny and this effort coming from Barzani family and Tutumlu was globally recognized, in 2013 the goal is to be into top-ten often and being able to fight for some podiums. An ambitious target taking into account the experienced field in the series because even Porsche factory drivers are going to participate.

Additionally, in parallel to negotiations with Porsche Supercup teams, Barzani Racing Team needs backing from other companies in Kurdistan or other foreign countries with interest on Kurdish soil, in order to join this project in the Formula 1 paddock. Undoubtedly the media coverage provided by Formula 1 – TV included- means an excellent and luxurious showcase for almost every brand. If Barzani Racing Team doesn´t get necessary backing, they will have to give up.

New Porsche 991 GT3 Cup is the most recent German creation, with a 3.8-litre flat-six engine and 454bhp and a paddle-shift transmission. The championship will visit famous and prestigious European venues such as Silverstone, Monza, Spa-Francorchamps, Barcelona or Nürburgring. Monaco, the glamorous country by the Mediterranean sea, will be another step in 2013.
