PROpeak Performance on a good way in ADAC GT Masters

13.06.2019: ADAC GT Masters #3 @ Red Bull Ring (Austria) Record winner Daniel Keilwitz (Germany) and Aston Martin factory driver Maxime Martin (Belgium) achieved the best result so far for PROpeak Performance in the ADAC GT Maste

ADAC GT Masters #3 @ Red Bull Ring (Austria)



Record winner Daniel Keilwitz (Germany) and Aston Martin factory driver Maxime Martin (Belgium) achieved the best result so far for PROpeak Performance in the ADAC GT Masters with ninth place in the second race. Especially in the second qualifying, the team of Christoph Esser managed to bring the tires better into the working window. This paid off with the tenth best lap time at the Red Bull Ring in Austria and meant a starting position in the fifth row for the first time.

The gap to pole position was less than half a second for the first time. Both Daniel Keilwitz in the race on Saturday and Maxime Martin on Sunday got off to a great start, with both of them making up a few places each, but despite all their efforts they largely lost again during the race. In the Saturday race, Keilwitz/Martin had to retire with the #99 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 shortly before the end due to slight engine misfires.    



   Team Principal Christoph Esser  


"We are on a good way. The step was small, but visible. In the second qualifying, the tires worked a lot better, and we hope that we can reproduce this knowledge in tire management as well. With just under half a second, the gap in qualifying was smaller than before, but in the race we still lack the speed, so that the gap adds up to 45 seconds.



The result of the Red Bull Ring encourages us. Now we have a nine-week summer break, in which we do not rest, but will work intensively on the improvements. There are also some tests on the schedule."    






    FACTS ABOUT RED BULL RING


•    Concentration: PROpeak Performance focused on one car, the #98 Aston Martin with Hugo de Sadeleer/Valentin Hasse-Clot (CHE/FRA) was not at  the start in Austria.


•    Free practise: In the two sessions on Friday, Keilwitz and Martin took the positions 14 and 9.


•    Qualifying 1: Keilwitz was 15th on the grid, the gap to P1 was 0.646 seconds.


•    Race 1: At the start, Keilwitz did well and passed some cars to improve to eleventh position when he handed the car to Martin. The Belgian lost places not least due to minor engine misfires and had to retire the #99 Vantage with two laps to go as a precaution. Keilwitz/Martin were ranked P23.


•    Qualifying 2: With a gap of 0.484 seconds on P1, Martin qualified the #99 for 10th on the grid.


•    Race 2: Martin made a perfect start as Keilwitz on the day before and was able to overtake a few cars. Because the speed is still missing in the race, the places won were lost again during the race. Nevertheless, Martin/Keilwitz achieved the best result of the season with ninth place.


•    Standings: Keilwitz/Martin share the 21st place in the standings with 13 points each.





DRIVER QUOTES



   Daniel Keilwitz (#99)

 
"We are satisfied because we have narrowed the gap to the front, especially in qualifying. Since we have been able to implement the tire better, the car has felt the same way much better. We are slowly increasing, we definitely want to continue this trend."


   Maxime Martin (#99)  



"Ninth place in the second race is the result of hard work. We are approaching the top very slowly. Daniel has done very well once again. Especially in the second qualifying we made a step into the right direction, were closer to the limit and took tenth place. The field in the ADAC GT Masters is really close together."
