Victory rewards strong team performance

PROsport Racing put in a fighting performance in the GT4 European Series and the Nürburgring Endurance Series and did not give up even after setbacks. A victory in Le Castellet rewards the racing team from Wiesemscheid.

PROsport Racing put in a fighting performance at the last race weekend. Hendrik Still and Fabio Rauer’s Aston Martin Vantage GT4 suffered a problem with the engine during testing on Friday, which could not be rectified on site. To save the two drivers’ race weekend, the team brought another car from Wiesemscheid to France – driver Hendrik Still thanked the team with a pole position on Saturday morning.
In the first race of the GT4 European Series powered by RAFA Racing Club on Saturday, Hugo Sasse and Raphael Rennhofer were on course for the podium for a long time in the #99 car. However, the Austrian Rennhofer had to retire the car around ten minutes before the end of the race with a suspension defect. Rauer and Still showed a strong recovery in the team’s second Vantage GT4 and moved up from 20th on the grid to eighth place.

Both PROsport Racing Aston Martins started the second race from the front row of the grid. Hendrik Still took a commanding lead in the first half of the race, while Raphael Rennhofer was involved in intense duels. But at the pit stop, the #100 car lost a few positions, while Hugo Sasse took the lead in the car he had taken over from Rennhofer. In the end, the two-time ADAC GT4 Germany champion took a superior victory! Still and Rauer ultimately finished the race in fourth position – meaning that the two drivers scored two solid points-scoring results.
The racing team from Wiesemscheid entered up to four cars in the season opener of the ADAC Nürburgring endurance series. The highlight of the two races was second place in the SP9 Pro-Am class for Maxime Dumarey, Simon Balcaen and Marek Böckmann in the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 in Saturday’s race.

In the GT4 class, the team suffered a number of setbacks due to accidents and technical problems, but still showed fighting spirit. Permit drivers Steven Palette and Mathieu Castelein finished fourth in Saturday’s race. The women’s duo of Célia Martin and Jasmin Preisig finished sixth on Sunday.
“Hats off to the morale of my team! Even in the most difficult situations, we kept fighting this weekend and even transported a replacement car to the south of France!” said team boss Chris Esser. “We were rewarded by the strong results in the GT4 European Series in Le Castellet. We were also able to gain important insights for the 24-hour race on the Nordschleife.”

PROsport Racing will continue in just one week’s time. The racing team from Wiesemscheid will take part in the two races of the ADAC 24h Qualifiers with up to five cars.
