GT3 auditions last weekend for Griessner and George in ADAC GT Masters

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Both drivers well versed with the complexities of GT4 racing saw David Griessner and Matt George take a significant step forward in their GT racing career last weekend as both shared one of PROsport Performances Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3's at the penultimate round of the ADAC GT Masters Series from the Nurburgring.

Making such a step up after just a simple one day test before the event was asking a lot of the two young drivers but neither went on to disgrace themselves over the course of the two - one hour races over the weekend after contractural issues with both their Pro drivers saw one one them (Daniel Keilwitz) actually compete against them in the Zakspeed Mercedes.

Whilst Griessner did suffer 'an off' on Friday that made for some late night working for the German squad, he later did well to avoid a substantial accident on the opening lap of race one where four mid field cars were taken out of the race right in front of the #98 AMR.

With that race being red flagged to clear the debris field, the #98 car went on to finish a credible P22 out of the original 31 car starters at their first attempt whilst in Sundays race they finished P23 out of a starting grid of 29 cars despite starting each race from the rear of the grid.

George would later tell us that their cycling through of various issues with the car were systematically solved only for new problem to take their place but more importantly their success was measured in many ways and not necessarily where they finished up in the races.

We wait to see if these two will figure in the final race of the Series from the Sachsenring at the end of the month.

For the teams two AMR Vantage GT4's entered into the supporting ADAC GT4 Germany Series saw a gratefully received resurgence in race results as firstly both cars finished both races and in positions that were of great credit - particularly for the #19 crew who had never raced the car or with selves before the weekend.

The #18 car of Alex Mies and David Ortmann would finish P6 and P5 whilst Christian Konnerth and Yannick Frubrich would debut with P16 and P13 finishes respectively.

That series final round of the season is also at The Sachsenring.
