MERCEDES-AMG MOTORSPORT TO TAKE ON ADAC GT MASTERS WITH A STRONG LINE-UP

0

Last year, the Mercedes-AMG Customer #racing Teams were able to rack up impressive single-race results in the #adacgtmasters. In the season opener at Lausitzring, #maroengel and #lucastolz claimed the maiden win for the Toksport WRT Customer #racing Team in the team’s debut season and again finished on the podium the following day. Each of the other Mercedes-AMG GT3s in the field managed to score a race win, too: DLV-Team Schütz claimed first place at Sachsenring, Team Zakspeed BKK Mobil Oil #racing GT3 was first across the finish line at Lausitzring. And the final race of the season ended with a victory for Mercedes-AMG Motorsport as well, achieved by KNAUS-Team HTP-Winward. In the final ranking, Toksport WRT ended up in third place of the teams’ standings while the Engel/Stolz driver pairing also secured third place in the drivers’ standings. No other of the seven manufacturers that had entered the competition managed to score more race wins in 2020 than the performance and sports car brand from Affalterbach.

Powerful driver line-up for the Mercedes-AMG customer teams
In the new season, the Customer #racing Teams are again relying on a powerful driver line-up that is not just to compete for race wins, but also has chances of winning the ‘International German GT championship’ title, awarded for the first time. With #maroengel and #lucastolz behind the wheel of the #22 Mercedes-AMG GT3, Toksport WRT is again relying on its successful duo from the previous season. Mann-Filter Team Landgraf – HTP WWR also has two experienced GT3 drivers with #maximilianbuhk and Raffaele Marciello in its number 70 car with the eye-catching mamba livery. Team Zakspeed Mobil Krankenkasse #racing will be participating in the 2021 #adacgtmasters with two cars from Affalterbach. Behind the wheel of the #13 car, #julesgounon, the 2017 champion and junior title winner, is making his comeback in the series. His teammate will be xy. The team’s second Mercedes-AMG GT3 will have Hendrik Still (GER) and youngster Constantin Schöll (AUT) as its drivers, both having already raced in #adacgtmasters in the previous season.

Mercedes-AMG GT4 on the support package in ADAC GT4 Germany
The Mercedes-AMG GT4 will again be on the grid for the ADAC GT4 Germany races this year, all taking place at the same weekends as the #adacgtmasters with the Lausitzring #event the only exception. The winner of last year’s junior title, Jan Marschalkowski, will again be #racing a Mercedes-AMG GT4 from Zakspeed. The team from Niederzissen will be running two Mercedes-AMG GT4s in this year’s season. Besagroup #racing and Leipert Motorsport will be running two further cars.

Stefan Wendl, head of Mercedes-AMG Customer #racing: “ADAC GT Masters traditionally is a highly competitive series with strong teams and outstanding drivers. With our Customer #racing Teams, we again have a very good line-up this year to be able, like in the previous season, to celebrate both race wins and to be in contention for the title. In the drivers’ standings, the last time we managed to win the title was 2015 and in the teams’ standings in 2018, but it was as close as could be last season. Our teams with the Mercedes-AMG GT4 are again in a strong position, too, and have justified hopes for title success. We are happy that the action is finally getting underway again at Oschersleben this weekend and we wish all our customer teams the best of luck.”
