Grasser Confirms 2018 ADAC GT Entry

Two Huracans again for the Lamborghini stalwart

Grasser Racing is set to return to the ADAC GT Masters series in 2018 with a pair of Lamborghini Huracan GT3s.

With three wins during 2017, the Gottfried Grasser-led team were the most successful outfit in the Super Sports Car League alongside title winners Callaway Competition.

“Basically, I’m very satisfied,” said team boss Gottfried Grasser, smiling: “We are Sunday champions. We achieved all our victories in the second races. We would have had a really good chance of winning the title if only Sunday’s races had counted!”

And so, Grasser is confident about 2018: “We’ve learned a lot for 2018. We’ll have a similar line-up for the start and therefore feel confident. Our goal is a place in the Top Three overall. We want to be even more professional in our work and use test outings to prepare ourselves for ADAC GT Masters races.

“The competition will certainly be very strong again. Timo Bernhard and Timo Scheider have already secured the services of two well-known new drivers, and the competition from Team Rosberg with their Lamborghinis will certainly be stiff. They’ve been very successful throughout and won the DTM this year. I expect a lot from Rosberg. We’re looking forward to going up against them and to having a strong competitor, who also deploys Lamborghinis.”

Alongside its testing programme, two 24-hour races are on GRT Grasser Racing’s schedule in January before official ADAC GT Masters pre-season testing takes place at Oschersleben.

“We’re going to line up again in Dubai and Daytona,” said Grasser. “Those two meetings are always great fun.”
