 ADAC GT Masters, race 4 at Most/Czech Republic

Scoring third at Sunday’s round of the ADAC GT Masters in Most, Czech Republic, the Porsche 911 GT3 R run by Precote Herberth Motorsport remains at the top of the standings. After finishing yesterday’s race on third, Porsche Young Professional Mathieu Jaminet from France and Germany’s Robert Renauer achieved their second podium result in the still young season.

 The 911 GT3 R fielded by KÜS Team75 Bernhard and shared by Klaus Bachler (Austria) and Adrien de Leener (Belgium) crossed the finish line as the second best Porsche in 14th. Jan-Erik Slooten (Germany) and Lucas Luhr (Switzerland) made up nine places in the race for their team IronForce by Ring Police and scored critical points in the Trophy classification.

In a gripping fourth race of the championship, which was marked by an early safety car phase and a total of eight retirements, Precote Herberth Motorsport once again managed to claim a podium spot. Jaminet took up the race for the Porsche team from Upper Bavaria from position five.

 The 23-year-old handed the ca. 500 hp customer sport racer off to his teammate Renauer after 18 laps. Renauer, who has won four GT Masters races in the past, managed to work his way into third place. On the 4.121-kilometre circuit, the 33-year-old defended his position to the flag. “This was a great weekend for our team.

Third place enabled us to extend our lead in the championship. My stint started well and I managed to quickly make up one place. The pit stop ran as planned and Robert drove flawlessly. A good qualifying result is very important on such a tight track, as collisions can be common, especially amongst the backmarkers,” said Jaminet.

In summery conditions and a temperature of around 25 degrees Celsius, the 911 GT3 R driven by Bachler and de Leener missed out on earning the first points of the year. The #18 race car took off into round two of the season at Most from the twelfth grid spot. In the turmoil of the 35-strong field, 26-year-old Bachler left the track twice in the first two laps and lost several positions.

 Thanks to fast lap times, the international driver duo of KÜS Team75 Bernhard advanced to 14th place by the end of the race. “In the qualifying we encountered a lot of traffic during our fast lap. And in the first lap of the race I was forced off the track while exiting the second corner and lost several positions.

Shortly afterwards we ended up in the gravel while trying to avoid trouble which cost us more positions. Afterwards we drove consistent laps and had a good pit stop, which enabled us to make up some of those places,” explained Bachler.

The two-time outright Le Mans winner Timo Bernhard became caught up in an accident in the first lap in the second 911 of the Rhineland-Palatinate squad and had to call it a day.

“I was nudged into a spin by another driver in the second corner and that was the end of our race. It’s a shame because my start was very good. Our car’s balance wasn’t great and we have to work on this before the next race weekend in Spielberg. We’d like to get back in the points in Austria,” said Bernhard.

After making changes to the setup prior to the qualifying, the 911 GT3 R run by the IronForce by Ring Police team started from the rear third of the field. Putting in a spirited charge, the new GT Masters team made up nine positions to finish the fourth race of the season on 25th.

 In the Trophy classification, the German team earned important points, which put IronForce by Ring Police second in the amateur class. “Our qualifying didn’t go so well for us, but we improved significantly in the race. I managed to make the most of some confusion at the beginning and overtake some competitors. We were unlucky in the pit stop because another car blocked our path. We had to wait and that cost us time,” explained Luhr.

The next race weekend of the ADAC GT Masters will be held from 8 to 10 June at Spielberg, Austria. The Red Bull Ring has been a regular fixture on the calendar of the race series since 2011. In 2016, Porsche works driver Kévin Estre won a round of the series for KÜS Team75 Bernhard. The races are broadcast live on SPORT1 as well as on the internet at www.sport1.de, www.adac.de/motorsport and www.youtube.com/adac.
