Only three cars from PROsport Performance to 3rd round of ADAC GT

Wednesday, June 05, 2019

Despite having just secured their first points in this years ADAC GT Masters Series, German based PROsport Performance will go to the third round of the season at the Red Bull Ring in Austria with just a single Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 as they and their partners continue to identify issues that have so far blighted their on track performances this year.

With Daniel Keilwitz being the winner of the Series last eight visits of of twelve from the Austrian circuit, the team will be hoping that that fact together with work already put in place by them and their technical partners to identify and hopefully correct these issue will allow the former ADAC GT Masters Champion and his AMR factory co-driver Maxime Martin to take that step necessary to catapult their season forward.

As a result of this, the team have elected not to enter their second Vantage GT3 of Hugo de Sadeller and Valentin Hasse-Clot. Team boss Christoph Esser said ""Together with Aston Martin we analysed the races in Oschersleben and Most and are now working on a list of tasks. To speed up the process, we will focus on one Vantage GT3 at the Red Bull Ring, on the car that Daniel Keilwitz and Maxime Martin will race. We are sharing our strengths, on the one hand with racing and on the other with a comprehensive test program with the clear goal of using the summer break to return stronger and better. Of course it would be good if we could take a step forward at the Red Bull Ring."

Their two - one hour races will take place over both Saturday and Sunday and will be live streamed in English via the ADAC GT Masters website.

Having not supported the main event at the GT3's second round from Most in the Czech Republic, sees the return of the ADAC GT4 Germany Championship which also features two AMR Vantage GT4 cars from the PROsport Performance stable for their second round of the season.

After something of a total disaster at the opening round from Oschersleben, where only one car finished one of the two races despite one having qualified on pole for the opening race, time has at least allowed the team and drivers to be become more familiar with the workings and driving mannerisms of their new GT4 platforms with their most experienced racer (Florian Thoma) also busy with the team in the GT4 European Series where he and Akhil Rabindra only just missed out on another podium at Paul Ricard. Hopefully, some of that knowledge and experience has been disseminated down through to the other drivers.

Thoma rejoins co-driver Jeremy Lesoudier in the red #18 whilst Joonas Lappalianen and Joerg Viebahn race again in the predominantly white car. Again, both races will be streamed live from the circuit via the ADAC GT4 Germany website.
