VLN and N24 regular Frikadelli Racing is set to make its ADAC GT Masters debut this weekend at the Nürburgring.
The Eifel-based team has entered its newly-acquired Porsche 911 GT3 R for team boss Klaus Aubbelen and Porsche junior driver Matt Campbell, as it looks ahead to a potential programme in the German-based series in 2020.
“In recent years, Frikadelli Racing have focused almost exclusively on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Although the Nordschleife is right on our doorstep, we felt that the time has perhaps come to take on a new challenge. Next year’s ADAC GT Masters could be a possibility,” said Team Principal, Klaus Abbelen, who heads the team jointly with Sabine Schmitz.
“I think that just about every GT3 team around has been involved with the ADAC GT Masters at some point. The series has come on really well in recent years and regularly offers exciting motorsport at the highest level. We’re now looking forward to experiencing the ADAC GT Masters for ourselves at the Nürburgring, and then the impressions we gain there will help shape our decision as regards 2020.”
Campbell, who is quickly rising up the ranks in Porsche’s driver stable has FIA WEC class wins to his name and an overall win Bathurst 12 Hour win (earlier this year) will also be making his ADAC GT debut as part of this effort.
“I’m delighted to be competing with Frikadelli Racing in the ADAC GT Masters,” said Campbell. “It will certainly be a terrific new experience for the whole team and for me personally.”
