In his second DTM season, Thomas Preining has already achieved impressive milestones. In 2022, he became the first Porsche winner in the DTM, and just one year later, he secured the DTM championship title for the 2023 season as the first driver on a Porsche 911, alongside Manthey EMA. It's an impressive accomplishment that was celebrated by the racing community and the countless "Grello" fans at the season finale in Hockenheim.
Particularly remarkable was his performance in the final races at Hockenheim. With incredible composure, he dominated the last two scoring races and managed to win both qualifying sessions and races, a feat that no one else achieved earlier in the season – a remarkable accomplishment that no other driver in the nearly 40-year history of DTM had accomplished before.
For the Manthey EMA team from Meuspath at the Nurburgring, a dream also came true in their success story, winning the first DTM season as Team Champions in their first attempt. Thomas Preining's move to Manthey EMA was a testament to a championship-winning combination. The trust they placed in Thomas Preining by entrusting him with the "Grello" car paid off handsomely.
Paddock Legends is proud to be a partner of Manthey EMA, providing racing apparel and marketing their merchandise items, including the Champion shirts, as part of this success story.
Thomas Preining expressed his feelings in superlatives: "The DTM is the greatest thing for me."
Here at Paddock Legends, we share this passion and enthusiasm for motorsport. That's why we send our heartfelt congratulations to the Manthey EMA team and Thomas Preining.
In the upcoming season, we look forward to continuing to stand by the side of Manthey EMA and other DTM racing teams by producing top-notch teamwear and merchandise items for the fans.
