Spielberg – The #redbullring served as the venue for the third race weekend of the 2017 ADAC GT Masters. In perfect conditions, a total of five #mercedesamg GT3 participated in the two races of the ‘super sports car league’. In the second race on Sunday, BWT Mücke Motorsport scored the best result of the weekend for #mercedesamg Motorsport: with the #26 #mercedesamg GT3, Sebastian Asch (GER) and Lucas Auer (AUT) secured second place and thus the coveted podium finish. Having started from sixth on the grid, Sebastian Asch already managed to make up a few positions in the opening stages of the race, in which he moved up to third. After the mandatory pit stop with driver change, Lucas Auer built on the strong performance by his team-mate and overtook the #84 #mercedesamg GT3 of the #mercedesamg Team HTP Motorsport for second place. The current DTM points’ leader then defended this position in his guest and home appearance until the finish. Driving the #84 #mercedesamg Team HTP Motorsport #mercedesamg GT3, Patrick Assenheimer and Maximilian Götz (both GER) had been on course for a podium finish for a long time, but after a strong battle by final driver Patrick Assenheimer just before the end of the race, they still dropped back to fourth. The third-best #mercedesamg GT3 was the car with starting number #21 of the #mercedesamg Team ZAKSPEED with drivers Luca Ludwig and Luca Stolz (both GER) in sixth place. Indy Dontje (NED) and Marvin Kirchhöfer (GER) finished seventh with the #48 #mercedesamg Team HTP Motorsport #mercedesamg GT3 and thus also scored a top ten result.

In the first race on Saturday, three #mercedesamg GT3 had already made it into the top ten. With the second-fastest time in first qualifying, Lucas Auer made his first mark at the start of the weekend with the #26 BWT Mücke Motorsport #mercedesamg GT3. In a turbulent race with several safety car interventions, an interruption and numerous position changes, the duo of Lucas Auer and Sebastian Asch finished in fourth place. With the #26 #mercedesamg Team ZAKSPEED #mercedesamg GT3, Luca Stolz/Luca Ludwig came fifth while Patrick Assenheimer/Maximilian Götz were classified sixth with the #84 #mercedesamg Team HTP Motorsport entry.

Lucas Auer, BWT Mücke Motorsport #26: “The ADAC GT Masters is a top-class race series, so I am all the more happy about the good result with the #mercedesamg GT3 that had a very good pace here at the #redbullring. Finishing on the podium in the second race is a great way to conclude an excellent weekend that went off to a very good start with second place in first qualifying.”

Maximilian Götz, #mercedesamg Team HTP Motorsport #84: “We had a solid start into the second race and were able to build up a good advantage. Patrick Assenheimer defended third place very well for a long time. Unfortunately, we couldn’t do any better than fourth today. All in all, we can be happy with the weekend. Now, we are looking forward to the next races in which we want to build on the good performance from the #redbullring.”& amp; amp; lt; /p>
