Dorr Motorsport ramp up for a possible four car assault in the ADAC GT4 Germany Series in 2022

Monday, December 13, 2021


German based Dorr Motorsport has today become the latest in a growing line of European based race team to announce an expansion in their racing programme ahead of next season with up to four possible Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4’s being considered for a full-scale assault on their national GT4 series.

Having raced in the ADAC GT4 Germany Series last season with initially just a single AMR Vantage GT4 for drivers Phil Dorr and Andreas Wirth, that was soon ramped up to a two AMR car programme to see out the 2021 season as bother Ben Dorr moved across from the McLaren 570s chassis to the Aston Martin with co-driver Nico Hantke with remarkable results.

Between them, the 2021 season left each crew with class podium finishes to celebrate with Phil Dorr and Wirth finishing third overall by the end of the six round, double header season.

Today’s news sees the team elevate themselves to a certain three car effort into the 2022 ADAC GT4 Germany Series with maybe four cars in the pipeline if negotiations come to fruition with another pair of drivers as new faces are already destined for the team.

Ben Dorr will be joined next season by one half of the 2021 FFSA GT4 Silver Cup Championship winning duo of Romain Leroux and Valentin Hasse-Clot as Leroux steps across from the AGS Events Racing team in France for the Dorr Motorsport team of Germany whilst Dorr’s 2021 teammate, Hantke joins up with GT rookie and ADAC Kart Masters racer Simon Connor Primm.

That leaves an as yet unconfirmed space beside Phil Dorr in the third of the team’s Aston’s which makes us think of maybe a little ‘factory’ support being in the offering?

“We are aiming for victory in all categories, regardless of whether it is a team, driver or junior standings, we have never been so well positioned as in the coming season. All the components just work together perfectly: the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 is a real racing car, the entire team is a perfectly coordinated team and our racing drivers have a lot of experience and a lot of success" said Robin Dorr, team manager in today’s announcement.

With the Prodrive factory still busy building the estimated twenty new GT4 platforms already ordered by their customer and Partner teams, there should at least be time for all teams to receive their orders in time for pre-season testing and the start of the 2022 seasons in April.
