PROsport Racing field three Aston Martins at penultimate rounds of ADAC GT Masters and ADAC GT4 Germany this weekend

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

The PROsport Racing team will be trebly busy this weekend at the penultimate round of the ADAC GT Masters and ADAC GT4 Germany Series as they take with them to Hockenheim both of their Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4’s AND their remaining AMR Vantage GT3.

Having swapped to the ADAC GT4 Series after their fallings out with the DTM Trophy Series a couple of months ago, Christoph Esser’s team had wanted to field both of their available GT4 platforms within the ADAC Series first time around at the Sachenring as well as their GT3 with a certain named AMR factory driver.

One thing and another later and the team were only able to field a single GT4 with driver Mike David Ortmann who teamed up with Hugo Sasse where their #18 car went on to claim a pole to flag race win first time out.

For Hockenheim, the team have found another pairing for their #16 AMR GT4 with German driver Yannick Fubrich who joins Ukrainian driver Yevgen Sokolovski, two drivers who have differing levels of racing experience but mainly within the NLS (VLN) Series that PROsport know so well.

These two AMR GT4’s of course join the full season #69 entry from the Dorr Motorsport team of Phil Dorr and Andreas Wirth who, after their two Junior Class podium finishes at the Sachsenring sees Dorr laying second in the Championship behind Mercedes driver Theo Nouet with just four races to go.

Brother Ben Dorr also joins the AMR family at this round with a replacement Vantage GT4 for lieu of his usual McLaren 570s that he will share with his co-driver Nico Hantke.

Further to that, and in return for some dogged determination from the team sees PROsport Racing return to the ADAC GT Masters Series with their AMR Vantage GT3 for the first time since their ill-fated double car audition in the series back in 2019.

This time their reigning DTM Trophy GT4 racer Tim Heinemann steps up to their GT3 platform for the first time in the headline GT3 series with Salman Owega but both drivers do have current GT3 multi-class racing experience from this season’s GTC series where both won novice titles.

All ADAC GT Masters and GT4 Germany races will be streamed live via the series social media channels.
