The ADAC GT Masters
With two races per event and two drivers per car, this is the most successful of all German GT racing series. Inaugurated in 2007, the series attracts the grand seigneurs of international motorsport as well as precocious racing talents. This year, there are more than 60 names on the entry list.
Whether they are driving a BMW, a Lamborghini, a Porsche, a Corvette or an Audi, the contestants in the Super Sports Car League have the extremely demanding task of taming the more than 600 horsepower pumped out by their GT3 cars on the seven race weekends during 2018.
These will be staged on such illustrious circuits as the Nürburgring, the Hockenheimring and Austria’s Red Bull Ring.
