A bitter-sweet finale for the PROsport Racing team around the NLS Nordschleife

Monday, November 07, 2022


It was to be a bitter-sweet finale to the 2022 Nurburgring Langstrecken Serie at the weekend for the locally based PROsport Racing Aston Martin Racing powered team after one of their cars came home with a class podium and the other on the back of a lorry.

A full season supporter of the German NLS (nee VLN) series, this final four-hour race on Saturday saw both the #17 Pro-Am classed Vantage GT3 car of Maxime Dumarey and Jean Glorieux head back around the infamous Green Hell together whilst their #176 Vantage GT4 car of Guido Dumarey and Yevgen Sokolovskiy partnered each other within their SP10 class.

A P11 Qualifying position for the #17 car was however quickly undone after heavy rear end contact showed distinctive broken rear suspension from an incident otherwise unseen by camera. Sadly for them, their season would end on lap one of the race even and before they had transissioned from the Grand Prix circuit and onto the Nordschleife for the first time.

For their GT4 counterparts however, it was to be a better day as Guido Dumarey and ‘birthday boy’ Sokolovskiy brought their car second overall in class for some much-deserved silverware.

Whilst that event has seen out their 2022 racing endeavours, we understand that the German team will soon be back in GT4 racing action after they indicated a possible two AMR car entry into this coming GT Winter Series that starts at Estoril in early January where we may even see their new all-woman racing crew compete together for the first time in preparation for something bigger later in the year.
