PROsport Racing going for better than last time out as the DTM Trophy hits the track of the Nurburgring

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

After two races at each of the previous rounds at both Monza and the Lausitzring, the DTM Trophy Series moves across to the Nurburgring for two further thirty minutes plus one lap races for the entered GT4 machinery.

The locally based PROsport Racing team should again enter their two Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4’s (again no entry list visible) into this round for their drivers Tim Heinemann (#1) and Mike David Ortmann, a driver who took over the #19 car after a parting of company between the team and Patrik Matthiesen after an ‘eventful’ season opener in Italy.

The last round around the tri-oval and infield track at the Lausitzring ended badly for the PROsport team with Ortmann finishing the highest of the pair in P10 in race one after a late journey through the gravel trap after a Safety Car for Heinemann before the reigning DTM Champion claimed Pole position for race 2 only to be taken out at high speed (literally) by an out-of-control KTM X Box going into the tight turn 2 on the second lap.

That impact inflicted immediate race ending damage to the #1 car leaving Ortmann as the sole runner in that race where he claimed his first points of the season in P10. Recent photos seen of the #19 car testing ahead of this weekend’s round will have seen the car bearing a front grille denoted with the AGS Racing name – that we understand is simple because PROsport sauced some parts from the French team but hadn’t removed the previous team’s details in time for that test.

The DTM Trophy entry will again contact a Qualifying session ahead of each race on both Saturday and Sunday.
