Another quartet of Aston Martins take on the Green Hell this weekend in NLS2 (UPDATED)

Wednesday, March 29, 2023


After a rather successful opening round to the season two weeks ago sees another four Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 and GT4 platforms take to the infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife this weekend for the second round of the NLS Series.

With this week also seeing some test days take place for wannabe entries into this year’s Nurburgring 24, this weekend’s entry sees the same number of cars but not necessarily in the same order and format as last time.

The big news today was of course the announcement that the Dorr Motorsport team (of ADAC GT4 Germany fame) who will this year be stepping up to the AMR Vantage GT3 platform (for the second time in recent years ) to compete at this year’s 24 with brothers Ben and Phil Dorr sharing their new GT3 with none other than Le Mans 24 and N24 Class winner Darren Turner.

That relationship starts in earnest this weekend as Phil Dorr partners Turner for the first time in the team’s #24 SP9 Pro entry whilst Ben Dorr again competes within one of the team’s SP8T (enhanced GT4) entries alongside his new ADAC GT4 Germany partner Theo Nouet within the #150 car.

They join the now regular NLS entry from the locally based Prosport Racing team as they again field the SP9 Am Class winning duo of Maxime Dumarey and Christoph Breuer within their #17 Vantage GT3 and Guido and Guillaume Dumarey again share the #176 SP10 (GT4) car with Ukrainian Yevgen Sokolovskiy after that car also had a run out two weeks ago albeit with a differing line up.

We don’t this time see the team’s #37 SP9 Pro car that Mike David Ortmann and Nico Verdonck raced to P14 overall last time, but that car was out this week in the hands of Alex Brundle and co as they also readied themselves for the N24 entry.

Saturday’s race will follow the usual format of early morning Qualifying ahead of a midday start for this four-hour affair around the Green Hell.


PROsport Racing now list some slight changes with their GT4 driver line ups with Guido Dumarey now pairing with Yevgen Sokolovskiy aboard the #176 car and with Mike David Ortmann now joining Guillaume Dumarey and Jorge Viebahn aboard the #175 car.
