In the series, which fans like to call the “League of Super Sports Cars”, this year it is for the first time the official title of the German GT Championship. The race for championship is completely open. The top six in the overall standings are just 15 points apart. Not that much, because a maximum of 56 points can be collected on each race weekend.
Bayer Michael Ammermüller and his French team-mate, Porsche works driver Mathieu Jaminet, travel to Lausitz as championship leaders. The two-time season winners share the cockpit in the Porsche 911 GT3 R of the SSR Performance team, but are only partially optimistic about the two races at the Lausitzring. “We’re definitely not among the favorites there. We will still do everything we can to defend our top position and collect important points, ”Ammermüller told AUTO BILD.
For the first time since 2019, fans have access to the paddock, the pitwalk and the autograph session. The two races will be broadcast live on NITRO on free TV on Saturday from 4 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 noon and in a live stream on adac.de/motorsport.
