HRT CONTINUES TO GROW IN STRENGTH: ULRICH FRITZ NAMED NEW CEO

26 April, 2021

Having expanded its racing programme for the 2021 season, the Haupt Racing Team continues to grow structurally too: the team founded last year by businessman and racing driver Hubert Haupt welcomes on board Ulrich Fritz, who takes over the management of Haupt Racing Team GmbH. In his new role, Fritz is responsible for the operational areas of the company’s business and will push ahead with the strategic further development. The joint mission is clearly defined: in the coming years, HRT will develop into a benchmark in international GT racing, as well as positioning itself even more broadly, with new projects, and growing as a company. The successful structures for race outings, with Sean Paul Breslin as team principal, Marvin Wagner as technical director and Renaud Dufour as chief engineer, remain unchanged.
