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.
