Team of the Week - PROsport Racing

Monday, June 27, 2022

If there was an award for “Team of the week”, then that would have to go to the PROsport Racing team whose Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 crews absolutely dominated the latest round of the ADAC GT4 Germany Series as well as two of their other Aston’s doing equally well at the latest round of the NLS from the Nordschliefe.

Full season entries of course for the ADAC GT4 Germany Series saw their Junior Class #24 car of Hugo Sasse and Mike David-Ortmann run with their Trophy Class crew of Yevgen Sokolovskiy and Christopher Rohner as last weekend’s third round of the season at the Dutch coastal circuit of Zandvoort.

There, the #24 car made a clean sweep of overall pole positions of each of the weekend’s one-hour races but then followed that up with two overall victories despite all the full course cautions and weather that the circuit and the series could throw at them.

That in turn was backed up by the #48 crew taking P3 and then P2 in their own Trophy class thanks to their P25 and P19 race finishes respectively.

These results have taken Sasse and Ortmann up to second in the overall Championship table behind that of the Dorr Motorsport AMR crew of Indy Dontjie and Phil Dorr but also to the top of the Junior Class for Sasse and up to second in the Team’s Championship table – again behind the Dorr Team. Sokolovskiy also moves up to third in his Trophy Class as the series moves onto their local circuit at the Nurburgring in early August.

Also running this weekend was another of the team’s AMR Vantage GT4’s as well as their Vantage GT3 which were running again within the Nurburgring Langstrecken Series (ex VLN Series) from the infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife.

Having taken something of the sabbatical for the ADAC Total 24H race at the end of May, the third round of the NLS was again ran over four hours with the team’s ‘resident’ driver coach, Nico Verdonck who again joined Maxime Dumarey and Jean Glorieux aboard their #17 SP9 Pro-Am entry to end their Saturday race day P4 in class with their #176 Vantage GT4 car Guido Dumarey and GT4 newcomer Emil Heyerdahl finishing P3 I their SP10 class.

Like many European based GT4 teams these days, PROsport Racing move across to Italy for next weekend’s third round of the GT4 European Series from Misano with their two-car entry, again involving Sasse, Ortmann and Verdonck.
