The past has shown that it was the right decision for us to enter the ADAC GT Masters," says Managing Director Stefan Schlund in the Exclusive Talk with 'Motorsport-Total.com'.

Schlund names NLS and GTWC as possible series for 2022

Nevertheless, it is still too early to say that the ADAC can rely on SSR performance. The team currently has three Porsche 911 GT3 R, for which suitable areas of application are searched for. A commitment in the GT3-DTM, where SSR at the Nürburgring with Michael Ammermüller completed a guest start, closes Schlund but.

"This is not a topic for us at the moment. There must be partners, and at the moment we have no big focus," he clearly represents. There are two other fields of operation on the list: the NLS series (formerly VLN) with the destination 24h race, and the GTWC Europe, which is "for a GT3 team always interesting and exciting".

"We are there [here] to lace on a package. It looks pretty good that we do that. Of course you also need driver here. In the next few weeks, the package will be safely laced.

SSR performance enables Laurin Heinrich GT3 Practice

as suggested, no decision has also been made in the driver's question. Schlund wants to give a chance to your own junior driver a chance in the GT3 car: Laurin Heinrich. "He has never sat in such a vehicle. We just look like he's caught," says the SSR managing director overlooking the 20-year-olds.

Heinrich is supported by the three-star SSR-Huber-van Berghe in the Porsche brand cups and can look back on a successful year in the Carrera Cup and Supercup. Both series closed on the fourth overall position, which is synonymous in the Supercup equivalent titled "Rookie of the Year". In the Supercup Heinrich also won the run in Zandvoort.

SSR Performance has developed in the Adac GT Masters for benchmark among the Porsche teams. In 2020, with the driver Duo Michael Ammermüller / Christian Engelhart , in the first full year in the series Master, this year, Ammermüller and Mathieu Jaminet missed the title defense of only four points.
