2018 ADAC GT MASTERS WITH CAPACITY GRID

The ADAC GT Masters starts with a high profile and capacity grid into the 2018 season. A total of 23 teams seized the opportunity to secure a starting position for the 2018 season and entered 37 supercars from eight different brand. The 2018 grid will feature Audi, BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG, Porsche and for the first time, Honda with the new NSX GT3. The season opener to the 2018 ADAC GT Masters will be contested at Motorsport Arena Oschersleben on the weekend of 13th – 15th April.

“The ADAC GT Masters is looking stronger than ever, and I’m expecting this to be a very exciting season,” says ADAC Sports President Hermann Tomczyk. “We are pleased to see new brands and some top-class teams either returning to the series or discovering the ADAC GT Masters for the first time. The high level of interest underscores the growing attraction of one of the strongest GT series in Europe.”

The teams competing in this twelfth season of the ADAC GT Masters include not only the champions of the past three years (Callaway Competition, Montaplast by Land Motorsports and Zakspeed) but also some returnees and others preparing for an exciting debut. Team Rosberg (DTM champions), Phoenix Racing and Car Collection Motorsport are making a series comeback. The ADAC GT Masters debutants are Honda Racing, EFP by TECE, i.s.r racing from the Czech Republic, TEAM RING POLICE with the support of German TV and YouTube star JP Kraemer and AutoArena Motorsport with the supported of HTP Motorsport.

As in previous season, the best-represented vehicle model on the grid will be the Audi R8 LMS. Seven teams will be fielding 12 of these mid-engined sports car from Ingolstadt: Aust Motorsport (2), EFP by TECE (2), i.s.r. racing (1), Montaplast by Land-Motorsport (2), BWT Mücke Motorsport (2), Phoenix Racing (2) and YACO Racing (1).

Meanwhile, the BMW contingent will be significantly larger than in the past two years, Schnitzer Motorsport and MRS GT-Racing having each registered two M6 GT3s. Callaway Competition and RWT Racing will continue to pin their hopes on the Corvette C7 GT3-R, as they did last year. One brand making a welcome comeback is Ferrari: HB Racing from Austria will be giving the Ferrari 488 GT3 its first ever ADAC GT Masters outing. The second make from Italy is the Lamborghini Huracán GT3: GRT Grasser Racing Team and ORANGE1 by GRT Grasser have booked places for three of these spectacular sports cars and Team Rosberg places for two. The 2018 season will see the series debut of Honda with two Honda Racing entered NSX GT3.

Mercedes-AMG also has its flag-bearers with seven cars entered. HTP Motorsport continue to use two Mercedes-AMG GT3s and will be lending their support to the car entered by AutoArena Motorsport. Zakspeed BKK Mobil Oil Racing will have two Mercedes-AMG GT3s, just as they did last year, and there will be single cars with the three pointed star from BWT Mücke Motorsport and Car Collection Motorsport. No GT series is complete without a Porsche contingent: KÜS Team75 Bernhard (led by sports car world champion Timo Bernhard and his father Rüdiger) go on the attack with two 911 GT3 Rs, while Precote Herberth Motorsport and TEAM RING POLICE are entering one each.
