Scoring points with both cars - that's what the KÜS Team75 Bernhard has set as a goal for the second weekend in the ADAC GT Masters on May 17th to 19th, 2019. On the challenging course in the Czech Most, the team from Bruchmühlbach-Miesau wants to finally check off the mixed season start in Oschersleben. At least the Porsche 911 GT3 R from the type 991.2 with the start number 17 with Porsche factory driver Timo Bernhard (38) from Bruchmühlbach-Miesau and Ex-Porsche-Junior Klaus Bachler (27) from Austria could achieve two points despite a completely chaotic qualifying and bad starting position. The sister car with number 18 under Porsche Young Professional Matteo Cairoli (22) from Italy and the Belgian Adrien De Leener (29) just missed the point, but could score points in the Sunday race.
From second on the grid, Matteo and Adrien have managed to finish seventh despite a time penalty and have been able to credit nine points with the points account. The 17 was started from fifth place, had to unfortunately end the race prematurely after a blameless accident in a promising position. Nevertheless, it became clear that the team is ahead in terms of performance in the league of supercars: In Most, this is now reflected in the results. Both the Saturday and Sunday races will be started at 14:45 and broadcasted live on Sport1 (TV) in full length. For those who would like to take advantage of the beautiful weather announced for next weekend, are their smartphone and this hint useful: All races of the ADAC GT Masters will also be streamed to adac.de/Motorsport via livestream.
The Autodrom Most is located about 100 kilometers southern of Dresden. The track measures 4,212 kilometers in length. Let's hear what team manager Klaus Graf has to say in advance of the second round of the high-class motorsport series this year: "The basis of our Porsche 911 GT3 R should also be very good in Most. We were able to exploit our potential in the first two races of the season for various reasons We have to keep cool, work consistently and diligently, and then the luck of racing will cease.The track from Most is technically demanding. A good balance from the start as the basis for the weekend will be important." As usual we keep our fingers crossed for the team of the double long distance world champion Timo Bernhard!
