Colin Bönighausen becomes a shareholder of VPD Racing

The Austrian motorsport talent factory VPD Racing is breaking new ground in promoting young talent: Colin Bönighausen, who is only 18 years old, becomes a shareholder of the team, bridging the gap between karting and car racing.

– Racing driver Colin Bönighausen gets involved with VPD Racing
– Exchange of experience with benefits for karting customers

The Salzburg karting team VPD Racing led by Ernst Penninger has already made numerous pilots better racing drivers and has prepared them for their future career stages. One among them is the German Colin Bönighausen. With the help of VPD Racing, the 18-year-old successfully made the transition from the KZ2 shift kart to the GT3 Cup Porsche last year. In 2023, Colin will compete in the BMW M2 Cup as part of the DTM with the aim of winning the championship title. However, Bönighausen remains close to his motorsport roots and underlines this relationship with an official part-ownership of VPD Racing.


In this way, Colin continues to benefit from the know-how and the large network of VPD Racing. On the other hand, he shares his experience with the team and thereby supports its customers. In addition, Colin Bönighausen will represent VPD Racing as an “alumni” in car racing from now on, and he will also be available as an instructor to both professionals and amateurs.
