PROsport Racing’s motto at the ADAC GT4 Germany race weekend at the Lausitzring was damage limitation. Despite a difficult starting position, Hugo Sasse and Mike David Ortmann defended their lead in the standings.
PROsport Racing has a difficult race weekend behind it in the ADAC GT4 Germany at the DEKRA Lausitzring. The racing team from Wiesemscheid, had to struggle with the vehicle classification at the race weekend in Brandenburg. As usual, the team fielded four Aston Martin Vantage GT4s.
Through racing luck, a strong strategy and a strong driving performance, Hugo Sasse and Mike David Ortmann operated damage limitation in Brandenburg. The two reigning champions finished the races in positions four and three and thus achieved significantly better results than team boss Christoph Esser had feared before the race weekend.
“Kudos to Hugo and Mike for the performance over the weekend. Driver-wise, this can’t be rated highly enough under the conditions and it feels like two race wins to me. We are still leading the championship and now hope that we can have an exciting battle for the championship at Sachsenring and Hockenheim with a fairer classification,” said Esser.
The two Gentleman drivers Yevgen Sokolovskiy and Damon Surzyshyn were also able to salute from the podium. On Saturday, the two drivers finished in second position in the Trophy classification. In the second race, the two drivers retired early after a collision. Also after a collision, the two youngsters Leon Erger and Raphael Rennhofer retired early on Sunday. In the first run, the two were classified in 14th position and were thus able to collect two points. Fabienne Wohlwend and Célia Martin remained without points in Brandenburg after a problem with the brake on Saturday and a time penalty on Sunday following a collision.
The next race weekend of the ADAC GT4 Germany will take place in three weeks at the Sachsenring. At the same time, PROsport Racing will also be in action at the two six-hour races of the Nürburgring Endurance Series.
