GT News Notebook: ADAC GT Masters, N24 & NLS

Honda NSX returns To ADAC GT Masters

Fugel Sport will bring the Honda NSX GT3 Evo back to the ADAC GT Masters in 2021 for the first time since 2018.

Dominik Fugel will make his GT racing debut in the ex Schubert Motorsport car.

Fugel is keeping things in the family after narrowly missing out on the TCR Germany title in 2020, he’s also been a TCR class winner in the Nurburgring 24 Hours for the past two years, both programmes using a JAS-built Civic Type R TCR.

The team will pick up their car in the next couple of weeks with a shakedown run planned at Cervesina.

EX-DTM Team RMG Switches To GT3 With BMW Junior Team, NLS and N24

After racing in both BMW M240i Racing and BMW M4 GT4 in the past year, the trio of BMW Junior drivers: Dan Harper (GBR), Max Hesse (GER) and Neil Verhagen (USA, will step up into the GT3 class for the 2021 season. The trio will combine in a BW M6 GT3 to be run by BMW Team RMG which, after leaving the DTM, will now be a factory-backed GT racing team for BMW Motorsport.

BMW Junior Team, Max Hesse (GER), Dan Harper (GBR), Neil Verhagen (USA).

The first race with the BMW M6 GT3 on the Nordschleife is currently scheduled for 27 March. The exact programme will depend on how the pandemic develops.

BMW Team RMG will combine the Junior team race programme with their role in supporting the development of the BMW M4 GT3 as it enters its final phase.

10Q Racing Return For 2021

10Q Racing Team will also race on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in the 2021 season with a Mercedes-AMG GT3 in the N24 race as well as in selected NLS races.

The team is also evaluating a second series programme with the planned addition of a Mercedes AMG GT4 car to their stable.

The team was on course for a top 10 finish at the N24 in their 2020 debut entry before a technical failure caused the car to crash.

The team’s original planned participation in 24h Dubai, 24h Spa or the Intercontinental GT Series, however, has been postponed to the 2022 season.
