Young Driver AMR brings V12-Power to Zandvoort

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

The scream of the 6-litre V12-engine of the two Young Driver AMR-Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 will echo this weekend in the North Sea dunes of the Zandvoort. The former Formula 1-track in the Netherlands is the venue of the second round of the ADAC GT Masters and Young Driver AMR aims for success in the ultra-competitive German GT-series. After a successful start at Oschersleben four weeks ago, Kristian Poulsen (DAN), who is teamed up with fellow countryman Christoffer Nygaard, leads the Amateur-Championship while the reigning German GT-Champions, the Stuck-brothers Ferdinand and Johannes (AUT), are chasing their first championship points of the season in the Netherlands.

"Zandvoort is new to me. But as the last season showed, this isn’t a big problem, as I get used to a new track quickly", Ferdinand Stuck is optimistic. "During the last four weeks, we raced the new Aston Martin two times on the Nürburgring and gathered a lot of experience with the car. This knowledge will help us in Zandvoort.“ Other then his younger brother, Johannes Stuck raced at Zandvoort before: „I haven’t been to Zandvoort for a while, but it’s great to come back, as Zandvoort is a nice track."

A prediction for the second round of the ADAC GT Masters is quite hard to make, says Young Driver AMR director Hardy Fischer: "I really hope for a good result at Zandvoort. Our new Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 is still very early in its development, so a prediction for the next round is difficult. But certainly we will be good prepared, as since the first round we had two very promising races at the Nürburgring and I hope our good performance will continue at Zandvoort. We learned a lot about our new car during the last four weeks and hopefully will turn this experience into a good result at Zandvoort."
