Gast starts with two Aston Martin Vantage GT4

Hot autumn for PROsport Racing: The racing program for the Wiesemscheid team is more than full for the remaining weeks of the 2021 season. The GT4 continues to be the focus of PROsport, which has already won three European championship titles in the GT4 and has already set considerable accents in 2021. With both Aston Martin Vantage GT4, PROsport Racing will make guest starts in the three coming races for the ADAC GT4 Germany at the Sachsenring (October 1st – 3rd), Hockenheimring (October 22nd – 24th) and – as a race on home soil – at the Nürburgring ( November 05-07).

Christoph Esser, Team Principal PROsport Racing:
„PROsport continues to focus on the GT4. When we started with Aston Martin in 2019, we started with a pole position at Oschersleben. We also set the tone at the guest start at the end of the 2020 season. Now we are very happy to be able to compete in three more guest starts in the ADAC GT4 Germany. It is a shame that we ended our involvement in the DTM Trophy prematurely, because the format with sprint races and one driver is really good and the DTM is a myth. Unfortunately, there were already incidents at the start in Monza and especially recently at the Red Bull Ring that neither our drivers nor we as a team can accept. Our drivers, Mike David Ortmann and Tim Heinemann, told us that they no longer want to drive in the DTM Trophy under these conditions. We respected that and share this attitude.”

PROsport Racing achieved three pole positions in the 2021 DTM Trophy, two for Heinemann and one for Ortmann, and drove a total of six times to the front row. Twice due to penalties and once because Heinemann was cleared while in the lead, three potential victories were lost in eight races.

Mike David Ortmann mit dabei - erstes Cockpit top besetzt – zweites Cockpit noch nicht final besetzt

Für die Gaststarts in der ADAC GT4 Germany bleibt Mike David Ortmann, der mit PROsport auch in anderen Rennserien bereits erfolgreich war und den Aston Martin Vantage GT4 bestens kennt, dem Team treu. Das erste Vantage-Cockpit ist bereits top besetzt, für das zweite Vantage-Cockpit. denkt PROsport auch an Testeinsätze mit Blick auf die Saison 2022.
