ADAC GT Masters, race 3 at Most/Czech Republic



At round three of the ADAC GT Masters, the Porsche 911 GT3 R run by Precote Herberth Motorsport scored a podium result on the Czech Republic racetrack at Most. In a field of 34 cars from eight manufacturers, Porsche Young Professional Mathieu Jaminet (France) and Robert Renauer from Germany crossed the finish line in third place.



The 911 GT3 R manned by the world endurance champion Timo Bernhard from Germany and his French works driver teammate Kévin Estre made up eleven positions after a valiant performance to finish on twelfth. In the Trophy category, the Porsche customer team IronForce by Ring Police came third.



In bright sunshine and an outside temperature of around 21 degrees Celsius, Jaminet and Renauer scored the best result of the season so far for the Porsche 911 GT3 R. In a hotly-contested race on the 4.121-kilometre Autodrom Most racetrack, the 500 hp customer sport racer with the starting number 99 swept over the line in third.



Taking up the race from fifth on the grid, start driver Renauer made a cracking start and avoided an accident in the first lap, which took out several cars. He handed the vehicle off to Jaminet in fourth. After the driver change, the Frenchman left the pits in third place in front of a competitor. Jaminet then defended this position to the flag. With this result, the squad from Bavaria moves into the lead of the championship.



 “I managed to make up a position at the start and through the pit stop we won the decisive spot for the podium. Mathieu did a great job of defending the position, although the car behind him was attacking. We knew that it’d be tight with the tyres towards the end but he made no mistakes and focussed on the race to the finish,” said Renauer.



After ploughing eleven places through the field in the #17 Porsche 911 GT3 R, the two-time outright Le Mans winner Timo Bernhard and Kévin Estre concluded the race outside the points. With the setup and heavy traffic on the track hampering quick lap times during the morning qualifying, the drivers for KÜS Team75 Bernhard started from 23rd on the grid but gained eleven places during the race.



“Things didn’t really come together for us during the qualifying. Kévin made a great start and managed to gain several positions. We would have liked to earn a few points, but we couldn’t maintain the speed. For race two we want to find a better balance to keep the tyres at a consistently high level,” explained Bernhard.



The sister car of the team from Bruchmühlbach-Miesau in Germany concluded the 60-minute race on 15th place. Klaus Bachler (Austria) and Adrien de Leener (Belgium) took up the race from 24th and made up nine positions.



 “It was chaos at the start with several cars spinning. In trying to avoid the melee I went over a kerb and damaged the underbody. After that, the main thing was to get the car home as well as we could. On Sunday we’ll do our very best in qualifying to start further up the grid,” said de Leener.



In race three of the ADAC GT Masters, the newly formed customer team IronForce by Ring Police again received a cup in the Trophy category. Amateur drivers Jan-Erik Slooten and Lucas Luhr concluded Saturday’s race on third in the class. Overall, IronForce by Ring Police finished on 18th place.



“Before the race, I looked for a line I could take in case of a collision. That worked well and we didn’t touch any other cars. Our pace was good, but we still lack the acumen to also attack,” explained Slooten.



Race four of the ADAC GT Masters takes off on Sunday, 29 April, at 13.08 hrs. The race is broadcast live on SPORT1 as well as on the internet at www.sport1.de, www.adac.de/motorsport and www.youtube.com/adac.



The respective grid positions of the four Porsche 911 GT3 R are determined in the qualifying on race day. Fighting for victory in the “super sports car league” alongside Porsche are Audi, BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Honda, Lamborghini and Mercedes-AMG.
