ADAC GT4 Germany at Zandvoort and Nürburgring Endurance Series – PROsport Racing faces another challenging race weekend.
After the successful race weekend at the GT4 European Series in Le Castellet, where PROsport Racing with Mike David Ortmann and Hugo Sasse won both rounds, the team is facing the next challenge. On the weekend of June 24-26, the Wiesemscheid-based racing team will compete in the ADAC GT4 Germany at Zandvoort as well as the Nürburgring Endurance Series.
As usual, the racing team will be fielding two Aston Martin Vantage GT4s at the guest event of the ADAC GT4 Championship. Mike David Ortmann and Hugo Sasse as well as Yevgen Sokolovskiy and Christopher Röhner will alternate in the cockpits of the two cars. The goal is to fully attack again after the difficult and unsuccessful race weekend at the Red Bull Ring. “We also want to continue the upward trend from the GT4 European Series in the ADAC GT4 Germany. Our test drives have shown that we are ready for this!” says team boss Christoph Esser.
Ortmann and Sasse currently occupy seventh position in the overall standings, while Hugo Sasse is fourth in the Junior classification. The Ukrainian Yevgen Sokolovskiy, who lives in Düsseldorf, ranks fourth in the Trophy classification. In the team classification, the Aston Martin team occupies sixth place.
The two one-hour races will take place on Saturday afternoon at 5:25 p.m. and Sunday lunchtime at 11:00 a.m. The ADAC GT4 Germany 2022 races can be viewed free of charge on the high-reach platform sport.de and on adac.de/motorsport.
At the same time, PROsport Racing will be represented with two cars at the 45th RCM DMV Grenzlandrennen of the Nürburgring Endurance Series. At the endurance race on the doorstep in the Eifel, the team will bring one Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and the GT4 counterpart of the British sports car to the start.
“It will be our third attempt with the GT3 and if I may use a well-worn saying, all good things come in threes,” continues team boss Esser. “In any case, we are continuing our GT3 program and hope to make some progress.” As usual, the two Belgians Maxime Dumarey and Jean Glorieux will pilot the GT3 car.
Alongside Guido Dumarey, Emil Heyerdahl will pilot the Aston Martin Vantage GT4. The Norwegian was recently accepted into the Aston Martin Racing Driver Academy and is competing with 21 other drivers for special sponsorship from the British manufacturer. In the last rounds of the Nürburgring Endurance Series and at the ADAC 24h Nürburgring Qualifiers, the Norwegian earned his A Permit and showed convincing performances on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
As usual, the race will start at 12 noon on Saturday, with qualifying taking place beforehand from 08:30. Fans at home can follow the race on the official livestream at www.vln.de. For €18 admission, spectators can also watch the race on site. This not only takes them to the open grandstands at the Grand Prix circuit and the exclusive spectator areas Brünnchen and Pflanzgarten, but also to the paddock, the pit lane and the starting grid. A visit to the ring°werk, the motorsport experience museum at the Nürburgring, is also included in the ticket price.
