69th ADAC Westfalenfahrt

19 Jun 2024

Return to the Nordschleife

Three weeks after an unsatisfactory 24-hour race at the Nürburgring, we return to the Nordschleife. We will participate in the 69th ADAC Westfalenfahrt, which marks the beginning of the second half of the Nürburgring endurance series, with four Aston Martin cars.

As usual, GDM and Prosport will enter an Aston Martin Vantage GT3 in the SP9 class. This car will be driven by the fast Nordschleife ace Marek Böckmann. The experienced Belgian drivers Maxime Dumarey and Simon Balcaen will complete the driver lineup. “After what we hope was the worst luck of the entire season during the 24-hour race, we are aiming for another top result with our GT3 car on Saturday. I believe that with a bit of luck, we can compete for top positions,” says Esser.

The team will also field an Aston Martin Vantage GT4 in the SP8T class. This car will be driven by Nordschleife veteran Jörg Viebahn and fast Chilean GT ace Benjamin Hites, who has already claimed victories in both the GT World Challenge Europe and the ADAC GT Masters, and who impressed with fast lap times in the 24-hour race.

The team’s lineup is completed by two Vantage GT4s in the SP10 class. The two Belgians Guido Dumarey and Alexander Hommerson will share one car with young Briton Harry Rice. PROsport Racing will also field a permit car for Canadian Damon Surzyshyn, who raced with the Wiesemscheid-based team in the ADAC GT4 Germany last year, and Marnix Hommerson.

The 69th ADAC Westfalenfahrt will start next Saturday at 12:00 noon. Prior to that, a 90-minute qualifying session will take place on the Nordschleife starting at 8:30 am. Fans can follow the entire race day of this popular racing series via the official livestream on YouTube.
