PROsport Racing competes in ADAC GT4 Germany with two Aston Martin Vantage GT4s

PROsport Racing competes in ADAC GT4 Germany with two Aston Martin Vantage GT4s.

Following the three guest starts at the end of the 2021 season, PROsport Racing will once again compete fully in the ADAC GT4 Germany in 2022, fielding two Aston Martin Vantage GT4s. Hugo Sasse and Mike David Ortmann took three victories in the six race starts at the end of the season, proving the capabilities of Chris Esser’s team, which PROsport Racing would like to build on in the upcoming racing year.

The two youngsters Sasse and Ortmann will also compete together in 2022 with an Aston Martin in the ADAC GT4 racing series. After their performances in 2021, they enter the new season as one of the title favourites. An ambition that Sasse clearly underlines: “Even though we’re looking from race to race, of course we want to be at the top and ideally be right at the top in the end.” Ortmann, too, is setting the same course: “I am overjoyed that we are continuing the cooperation with Chris. We have a really good package with the team. It worked almost perfectly last year and we want to pick up where we left off and clearly compete for the championship.”

In addition to the overall classification, 17-year-old Hugo Sasse can also fight for the title in the junior classification. This is another goal of the young driver from Aschersleben in the 2022 ADAC GT4 Germany season.

The Ukrainian Yevgen Sokolovskiy, who lives in Düsseldorf, will start in the second Aston Martin. It is currently unclear who will share the car with him. PROsport Racing is in talks with suitable candidates and will finalise the driver pairing shortly. Sokolovskiy already gained experience in the PROsport Racing Aston Martin in 2021 when he competed in the ADAC GT4 series at Hockenheim and the Nürburgring. Driver and team are looking to fight for top results in the Trophy standings over the course of the season.

Team boss Chris Esser is optimistic about the 2022 ADAC GT4 Germany season: “I can only agree with Hugo and Mike’s statement! When you’ve been doing GT4 for as long as we have and you look back on the successes of the last few years, the expectations are naturally very high. We’re looking forward to the upcoming ADAC GT4 Germany season and trying to build on our successful starts in 2021!”

The ADAC GT4 Germany season will kick off the new racing year at Oschersleben from 22-24 April. This will be followed by events at the Red Bull Ring, Zandvoort, the home round at the Nürburgring and the Sachsenring, before the season finale takes place at Hockenheim on 21-23 October.
