Success in Germany for two AMR powered teams in two differing series

Monday, September 11, 2023


It was a fantastic achievement from the two Aston Martin Racing powered teams competing within two separate series in Germany at the weekend as both delivered on podium success despite one stretching themselves across both series and the other across consecutive six-hour races.

For the Doer Motorsport team, it was the simple case of two six-hour long Nurburgring Langstrechen Serie events around the infamous Nordschleife with their driver line up of brothers Ben and Phil Dorr alongside that of Nicki Thiim aboard their #24 AMR Vantage GT3 whilst for the Prosport Racing team – it was to be a double car effort within the same NLS 6 and NLS 7 events plus a four-car effort in the latest round of the ADAC GT4 Germany Series.

For the Doer team, things started well on Saturday with an overall P2 (P1 in class) Qualifying run ahead of the weekends opening six-hour race where they converted that from row start into a P4 overall result however, things would get better for them on Sunday as their then P8 start would transpire into a P3 overall finish.

Whilst they were doing that, the Prosport Racing’s #17 Vantage GT3 crew of Maxime Dumarey, Christoph Breuer and Marek Bockmann sadly failed to finish Saturdays race thanks to a last lap puncture but did take an SP9 Pro-Am class win to make up for it on Sunday. That would be in addition to there #176 SP10 entry of Guido Dumarey, Rudi Adams and Michael Hess completing a near double with a P3 and P4 finish in class in their Vantage GT4.

Not to be left out of the podium fun, some of their teammates competing within the fifth round of the ADAC GT4 Germany Series from the Sachensring also had something to cheer as the #1 crew of Mike David Ortmann and Hugo Sasse claimed their first double race win of the season to healthily increase their championship lead going into the final round of the season at the Hockenheimring at the end of October.

Their three further crews also competing all managed to finish both hour-long races at the weekend with the #19 crew of Leon Erger and Raphael Rennhofer finishing P11 in race 1 and P16 in race 2 alongside Fabienne Wohlwend/Celia Martin and Yevgen Sokolovskiy/Damian Surzyshyn who would finish P18/P12 and P22/P19 respectively.
