Tim Heinemann, reigning champion of the DTM Trophy and already an experienced GT3 driver with victories in the GTC series, is moving up from GT4 to GT3 in Christoph Esser’s team. Guest appearances are planned for the 23-year-old German in the current season of the ADAC GT Masters. Aston Martin works driver Nicki Thiim is planned as the partner of choice. The Aston Martin partner team PROsport Racing has already requested Aston Martin Racing (AMR) for approval for Thiim.
Christoph Esser, Team Principal PROsport Racing:
“Tim Heinemann is an absolute driving talent and we would like to continue working with him. That’s why we want to do guest starts in the ADAC GT Masters with him and, if possible, with Nicki Thiim. In the past few weeks and months, Heinemann has already completed tests with our Vantage GT3 on the Nürburgring, Grand Prix circuit and Nordschleife, also in Hockenheim. “
