PROsport Racing focuses on GT4

PROsport Racing - Aston Martin Vantage GT4

PROsport Racing has set a new course and is concentrating on the near-standard GT4 sports cars for the current and the coming 2021 season. The team, based in Wiesemscheid at the Nürburgring, will field both Aston Martin Vantage and Porsche Cayman in various race series.

   Team manager Christoph Esser   
“The GT4 fits perfectly with PROsport. We have been competing in this class since 2013 and have won two driver and one team titles in the European Championship alone. The experience from all these years is our strength. That’s what we’re focusing on, even beyond 2020.”

PROsport has used the Corona break efficiently to bundle its strengths. Both the two Aston Martin Vantage GT4 and the Porsche Cayman PRO4 have been further developed and optimised. While the Cayman has matured over the years, the Aston Martin has been able to implement the numerous insights gained from the debut season and thus noticeably improve both performance and reliability.


With Aston Martin in selected GT4 races

Several test drives as well as the first racing appearances in the 24h GT series (Creventic) and in the Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie (NLS) have already confirmed the progress made with the Aston Martin Vantage. After the British sports car showed its basic potential with pole positions and podium finishes in its debut year, PROsport also has its sights set on a return to the GT4 European Championship and ADAC GT4 Germany, but a Vantage race in the new DTM Trophy is also conceivable.

   Team manager Christoph Esser   
“We are convinced of the potential of the Vantage, especially after the comprehensive optimization of our vehicles. We want to demonstrate this potential at selected races. To do this, we want to rely on GT4 drivers who are as fast as they are experienced and who – quite frankly – have a small budget for a small programme.”

The 24-hour race at the Nürburgring has always been a compulsory date in the PROsport Racing calendar, even though the classic race is exceptionally not held until the end of September this year due to the COVID 19 pandemic. With an Aston Martin Vantage GT4, the team based in Wiesemscheid,
