Just one week after the victorious guest appearance at the GTC Race at the Nürburgring, the ADAC GT4 Germany made a stop at the traditional circuit in the Eifel. For the first time, Christian Voß’ team brought three Mercedes-AMG GT4s to the start in the ADAC’s top-class GT4 championship. Philipp Gogollok and Phillippe Denes took turns at the wheel of the car with start number #83. And there was also a new driver in the car with start number #84, the Swiss Lucas Mauron. Mauron piloted the car with Ferdinand Winter. Julian Hanses and Theo Oeverhaus started as usual in car number #85.
For the first run Hanses qualified on the eleventh starting position, while Mauron was able to start the run from 13th position. Philipp Gogollok drove to 28th on the grid in his first GT4 qualifying session. The one-hour race then saw the start of the race to catch up for the three CV Performance Group cars. In a battle-filled race, Hanses and Oeverhaus moved up to seventh position and the #84 car also made it into the top 10, finishing the race in ninth place. Gogollok and Denes, who made a big splash in his two appearances in the GTC Race, finished the race in 16th position.
The starting position for the second race also meant that the three CV Performance Group Mercedes-AMG GT4s had to work their way up in the race. Theo Oeverhaus and Julian Hanses started the race from twelfth on the grid. In the race, the two drivers fought their way forward strongly and missed out on a podium finish by just under four seconds – the team’s top car finished the race in fourth position. Lucas Mauron and Ferdinand Winter were flagged off in tenth place after a turbulent race. Philipp Gogollok and Phillippe Denes finished the second race in 17th place.
Team boss Christian Voß:
“The weekend was not easy for us, but we still managed to score a lot of points in both races, which makes us happy. I’m also satisfied with the first-time use of our third car, Philipp and Phillippe were able to show a strong performance in this top-class field.”
The fifth race weekend of the ADAC GT4 Germany at the Sachsenring will take place from September 23 to 25.
