Pepe Massot (born 14 November 1995) is a Spanish racing driver from Barcelona, Spain currently competing in the 2016 Porsche Supercup driving for Momo Megatron Team. In 2015 Pepe drives for Küs Team75 Bernhard.
Prior to racing in Germany, Massot's career from 2012 to 2014 was based in Great Britain in the various support series for the British Touring Car Championship including the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain, the Ginetta GT4 Supercup and the Ginetta Junior championship.
In 2012 Pepe Massot decided to try racing in the Ginetta Junior championship, initially with just the first two of the season's ten meetings.
Early success saw him able to commit to the full season with Hillspeed. He finished the season 4th overall helped by wins at Snetterton and Silverstone. There were other podium places won at Donington, Oulton Park, Croft, and Brands Hatch (GP circuit). His performances during the season saw him listed as one of the drivers of the season by Autosport.
At the first meeting of the season at Brands Hatch Indy circuit, despite limited testing time in the more powerful G55 car, he managed to qualify 4th and in the weekend's three races finished, 6th, 1st and 7th.
The second meeting of the season was held over the weekend of 20 and 21 April at Donington Park. Massot finished 4th in round 4, 6th in round 5 and in the final 6th round, he scored his second win in the senior Ginetta series.
For the renamed 2014 season, Massot remained with JHR Developments, with G55 cars now in full GT4 specifications. After an unsuccessful start to the season, in which he won just one race, Massot decided to leave the series in favour of the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain.
For the remainder of the season starting with round 5 at Croft, Massot competed in the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain driving with Parr Motorsport. Initially, he was placed in the Pro-Am1 class but following his performance at Croft, where he took a podium finish in his first meeting, he was re-evaluated as a Pro driver. He was to finish the season in 5th place with 135 points.
After the season finished, he made his début in the Porsche Supercup, driving for MOMO-Megatron at the Circuit of the Americas. It would not prove to be a successful début; a mechanical failure on Colin Thompson's car caused him to crash into Massot in the first race, forcing both drivers to retire.
After a long recovery Pepe goes back to the competition entering in rounds 7 & 9 -Spa and COTA- of the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup with Momo-Megatron Partrax Team.
