The ADAC GT Masters held official Test Days at Oschersleben on Tuesday and Wednesday. Two Audi Sport customer racing teams took part with a total of three Audi R8 LMS ultra cars.
Two cars were entered by Prosperia C.ABT Racing and a single car from YACO Racing.
The Prosperia C.ABT Racing team is once again planning a three car assault for the ADAC GT Masters, aiming to repeat their 2013 teams’ championship title. The team only entered two cars for the official testing.
Prosperia C.ABT Racing entered their #10 and #11 Audi R8 LMS ultra cars for the two days of testing. The #10 entry was driven by René Rast and young South African, Kelvin van der Linde. The #11 entry had Nicki Thiim and Fabian Hamprecht behind the wheel.
The Audi Sport customer racing teams showed good pace during the testing on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Three sessions were held on Tuesday. The first session saw the #11 Prosperia car in third, followed by YACO Racing in fifth and the #10 Prosperia car in fifteenth. The first session saw a mix in conditions, limiting valuable running for many teams.
