PROsport Racing cars missing from grid of DTM Trophy opener

Saturday, June 19, 2021

We are hoping for better things in tomorrow’s second race of the open weekend of the 2021 DTM Trophy Series from Monza after all three cars from the PROsport Racing team failed to make the grid in todays opener.

Fielding two Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4’s as well as a Porsche, and despite ongoing technical issues for the Adam Christodoulou Porsche during Free Practice, all three cars set a representative Qualifying time that would have seen reigning DTM Trophy Champion Tim Heinemann start today’s race in P4, Christodoulou P12 and Patrik Matthiessen P19 out of the field of twenty-two car.

However, none of these cars featured on the grid for the start of the race and none started the race from pit lane either.

We understand that a parc-ferme transgression after Qualifying for the #1 Heinemann car ultimately lead to that car being disqualified from the race for which the team withdrew their other cars (in protest?) just ten minutes prior to the race start.

Hopefully, tomorrow will bring greater clarity on that situation that will allow all their cars to race tomorrow.
