Porsche Junior Driver, American Connor De Phillippi

Roboscan possesses a lot of the same characteristics and ambitions that I myself have. Roboscan is a young company, with an incredible product and looking to establish itself globally.

Like many other successful software companies, Roboscan Inc. has made the jump into international motorsports and partnered with Connor De Phillippi, one of two new Porsche Motorsport supported junior racing drivers for the 2013 season.

After a rigorous selection process in Potsdam, Germany and Vallelunga, Italy, De Phillippi was one of two drivers to prevail against young drivers from around the world and chosen by Porsche Motorsport to take part in the 2013 Porsche Carrera Cup Germany. Factors like mental aptitude, physical fitness and technical understanding were all taken into account. In addition, they had to prove their ability to work with engineers, drive simulated qualifying laps, with consistent times over a race distance and consistently show their speed in qualifying laps on fresh tires.

Roboscan Inc. Vice President Leonard Sangbin Lee is more than excited to partner with someone of Connor De Phillippi’s caliber. “Roboscan Internet Security prides itself on maximum performance, safety and overall technical excellence. Porsche Motorsport shares many of the same attributes. By them selecting Connor as a representative, both on and off the racetrack, that’s a clear sign we have partnered with one of America’s great young talents and brand ambassadors.” Leonard added, “We are very excited about 2013 and we look forward to forging this partnership into one that not only helps our Roboscan Internet Security brand exposure, but helps Connor rise within Porsche and leads to a long and successful sports car career.”

Connor De Phillippi, 20, is a born and raised Californian, from the Southern California beach town of San Clemente. He is now one of only two American drivers with current support from Porsche Motorsport. With fellow Southern California native and Porsche Works driver Patrick Long being the other American, De Phillippi is in great company and very eager to hit the gas and get started with his next step up the motorsport ladder. "This newly established partnership with Roboscan for my 2013 race season in Europe is truly incredible. They possess a lot of the same characteristics and ambitions that I myself have. Roboscan is a young company, with an incredible product and they are looking to establish themselves globally. I am extremely proud and honored to have them on-board and be a part of their growth. Through our racing program, I am looking forward to helping them establish their global marketing campaign during my first year in the Porsche Junior Program. I cannot thank everyone at Roboscan enough for their support and I am looking forward to partnering with them for the long term."

Porsche has intensively supported talented youngsters in motorsport since 1997. Today's Porsche factory pilots Patrick Long, Timo Bernhard, Marc Lieb and Marco Holzer were trained as Porsche juniors and have gone on to become some of the most successful sports car drivers in the world. Porsche head of racing, Hartmut Kristen emphasized this by saying, “Both Alex Riberas Bou and Connor De Phillippi have the talent necessary to be very successful in the sports car scene. Our current Porsche works drivers have shown that the Carrera Cup is an excellent platform for a professional international career."
