Former champions, factory drivers and young talents fight for victories and points

The top-class field of drivers consists of around 20 factory drivers and successful GT aces who have experience from Formula 1, WEC and IMSA. Ambitious young talents want to gain valuable experience with the super sports cars of the brands Audi, BMW, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche in one of the strongest GT leagues of all. Of these, 14 are simultaneously chasing points in the Pirelli Junior classification.

The Schubert Motorsport team, based just 500 meters as the crow flies from the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben, wants to take advantage of the home advantage at the start of the season. The local hero will be attacking with two BMW M4 GT3s, relying on two factory drivers and a youngster duo.

Seven former ADAC GT Masters champions are chasing another title in the German GT Championship over seven race weekends in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. One of the favorites is the current champion Christopher Mies (32, DEU), who drives an Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II with Tim Zimmermann (25, DEU) again for Montaplast by Land-Motorsport. His successful driver colleague from 2021 Ricardo Feller (21 / CH) has changed the cockpit and is starting for the same team together with young driver Jusuf Owega (20 / Cologne).

Also Christian Engelhart (35/Starnberg) and Ayhancan Güven (24/TR) in the Porsche 911 GT3 R from Joos Sportwagentechnik or Raffaele Marciello (27/I) and Jonathan Aberdein (24/ZA) in the Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo from Mann-Filter Team Landgraf have good chances of success. The drivers of the Emil Frey Racing and T3-Motorsport teams also want to have a say in the title fight in their Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo.

Sustainability on all racetracks

In addition to the spectacular racing action, sustainability determines the 16th season of the ADAC GT Masters. For the first time, the new innovative fuel “Shell Blue Gasoline 98 GT Masters” will be used, which consists of around 50 percent renewable components. The long-standing supplier Shell developed the environmentally friendly fuel exclusively for the German GT Championship. The “Bottle Free Zone” project launched in 2021 with partner BWT to avoid plastic waste is being expanded.
