There are plenty of quick drivers in the ADAC GT Masters, but which of them was the fastest in 2012?
Austrian Martin Ragginger came out tops in last year´s ADAC GT Masters qualifying sessions. If you aggregate, then compare qualifying times for 2012, no one was faster than ‘Raggi´ – the 24-year-old put his Porsche 911 GT3 R on pole both at the Lausitzring and in Hockenheim.
Ragginger´s best qualifying times add up to 11.25.246 minutes – as a matter of interest, when you put together all the best times achieved by all of the drivers, Raggi et al, in all of the qualifying sessions you get a figure of 11.22.295mins. Reigning champion Maximilian Götz was the second-fastest qualifier of 2012, ahead of fledgling BMW works driver Maxime Martin.
The results in qualifying from each of the year´s events were evaluated with the exception of the two sessions at the Sachsenring, where Qualifying 1 did not take place, but only those drivers who posted a lap time in every quali during the season were placed.
The top five fastest qualifiers of the 2012 ADAC GT Masters season were:
1. Martin Ragginger Fach Auto Tech, Porsche 911 GT3 R
2. Maximilian Götz kfzteile24 MS RACING Team, Mercedes Benz SLS AMG
