On April 8th and 9th, the first official test drives are going to be at the motorsportarena Oschersleben, with which the KÜS Team75 Bernhard starts into the season 2019 of the ADAC GT Masters; the 13th year of the popular event series includes 14 races on seven weekends. The team from the palatine Bruchmühlbach-Miesau brings in the league of super sports cars again two Porsche 911 GT3 R of the newest series with over 367 kW / 500 PS to the start and trusts in the question of driver choice almost entirely on the proven lineup.

The sister car with start number 18 is piloted by Porsche Young Professional Matteo Cairoli (22) Italy and Adrien De Leener (29) from Belgium. Continuity is a priority: Timo, Klaus and Adrien are regular team drivers; Matteo is the new arrival, who however, has already competed in two GT Masters races in 2016 for the KÜS Team75 Bernhard.
