Walter Lechner Racing is an auto racing team based in Austria. It is also known as the Lechner Racing School, and offers young people their first insight into the motorsport world and aims to discover new driver talents.

History[edit]

Sports car racing[edit]

Walter Lechner Racing competed in the Interserie in the 1990s, and developed their own car in conjunction with Reynard Motorsport; the Lechner Spyder SC91. Since then, they have actively competed in the Porsche Supercup series since 2003.[1] They won their first Teams' Championship title in 2005 and two more followed in 2007 and 2008. In 2005, the team won both trophies as Alessandro Zampedri collected the Drivers' Championship with a win at the Circuit de Catalunya. Drivers such as Richard Westbrook, Damien Faulkner, Danny Watts and Patrick Huisman have also driven for the team over the years and seen the team win many races. In 2009, the team failed to win a race, although Štefan Rosina came in third place in the overall drivers' standings.
