Jubilation at PROsport: Peter Terting twice second

Twice second in qualifying, twice second on the podium – races seven and eight of the new DTM Trophy season brought PROsport Racing and Peter Terting the long awaited breakthrough. The cheering was correspondingly great in the small team around team boss Christoph Esser and team manager Aaron Hermes. On the 3.6 kilometer long sprint track of the Nürburgring, the striking orange Porsche Cayman PRO4 was a real “champion hunter” on this day, because in both qualifying sessions and both races ex-DTM driver Terting only had to admit defeat to title favorite Tim Heinemann (Mercedes).

Team manager Christoph Esser:
“Finally the hard work on our Cayman PRO4 has paid off. Some tests were necessary to adapt the vehicle to the Hankook standard tires. Not only the team, but especially Peter Terting deserves these successes.”

At the previous six races of the season – two each at Spa-Francorchamps, the Lausitzring and the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit – Peter Terting had already achieved places in the front field with the #18 Porsche: Fourth place in Spa, sixth place in the Lausitz and fifth place at the Nürburgring. However, PROsport also had to cope with a breakdown every weekend, due to a defective high-pressure pump, an imploded battery and a stone in the radiator. Currently Peter Terting has 70 points on his account and is fifth in the highly competitive DTM Trophy.

#18 – Peter Terting:
“The joy about these two podium placements was enormous. The team has been giving its all since the beginning of the season. The key factor for success was that we improved our Cayman step by step. Now I hope that things will also go well for us in the remaining four races.”
