J2Racing – Updates for the 2021 Season

First space, then the Green Hell

The fact that John will not take turns driving the Mercedes-AMG GT3 with his wife Janine in 2021 has a direct connection with the new vehicle sponsor Axiom Space. The space infrastructure company from the USA accompanies private individuals on their journey to the international space station ISS – from training to the flight itself.

For John, this is a lifelong dream come true and he is currently diligently preparing as a backup mission pilot for Ax-1, the first fully private mission in history to the ISS, scheduled for 2022. “Even as a child, I dreamed of flying into space,” says Shoffner. “Now this dream is becoming a reality. To do this, I will take a year off my second great passion, racing.”
