Home game for Ex-Porsche-Junior Klaus Bachler (29) at the ADAC GT Masters on the Red Bull Ring in Styria: For this reason alone, the KÜS Team75 Bernhard from Landstuhl will arrive with great anticipation in Austria. The 4.318 kilometer long track in Spielberg was reserved for the league of the super sports cars on October 16th to 18th, 2020. The team around the two-times Le Mans - winner and two-times endurance world champion Timo Bernhard always likes to remember on the history on the Red Bull-Ring: Good results in the past years, amongst other things a victory in 2016 and a podium in the last year. This awakes good memories on the beautifully landscaped and driving demanding race track.
Bachler was born on July 27th, 1991, in the Austrian Judenburg and is active in motorsports since he was nine years old. Like most of his colleagues, he started in karting. In 2006 Klaus switched to formula racing, and in 2007 he became Junior Champion in Formula Lista. He has been driving GT racing as part of the Porsche sponsorship program since 2012. The Austrian has competed in the ADAC GT Masters since 2015; In 2014, 2015 and 2017 he took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Bachler has been managed by Willi Dörflinger and Mercedes-AMG F1 Motorsport Director Toto Wolff since 2009. On the upcoming weekend he will be sharing the cockpit of the Porsche 911 GT3 R with starting number 17 with Porsche works driver Simona De Silvestro from Switzerland. In terms of speed, the duo was mostly up front this year, but unfortunately the nine-eleven often lacked the necessary bit of luck.
David Jahn (29) from Leipzig and Jannes Fittje (21) from Langenhain want to continue their strong series in the points with the sister car with starting number 18. The both one-hour races start on Saturday and Sunday at 1 pm. each and are broadcasted live on Sport1 (German TV channel) as always. Team boss Timo Bernhard to this: "The Red Bull Ring is a really great track with a special character. The breaks are particularly challenged, top speed is also requested, in addition the balance has to be perfect because of many medium-fast turns. Last year, we had a good speed, were well set up and drove up to the podium. We want to implement this exactly the same way the next weekend. We're looking forward!" The editorial staff of this blog, too! And there comes up double joy when you can save 10% with the autumn sales action on the Bachler-modelcars in scale 1:43 and 1:18.
