“PIXUM Team Schubert” ready for new ADAC GT Masters season

This weekend, “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer commences its second season in the ADAC GT Masters. Thanks to the support of its partners, the team from Oschersleben (DE) is once again able to line up with two BMW Z4 GT3s and two strong
pairs of drivers. Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) will take a second crack at the title in the number 19 car. In 2013, the duo was in contention to win the Driver and Team classifications right down to the season finale in Hockenheim (DE). Max Sandritter
shares the driving duties in the number 20 BMW Z4 GT3 with the only newcomer to the team, Jens Klingmann (DE). Klingmann made a guest appearance with “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer at the Sachsenring (DE) in 2013, and impressed by
finishing first and third. He replaces Jörg Müller (DE), who has switched to Japan.

The ADAC GT Masters kicks off on Schubert Motorsport’s doorstep in Oschersleben. The two races in the Magdeburger Börde region of Germany both begin at 12:00 on Saturday and Sunday. Just in time for their home races Schubert Motorsport’s updated website
(www.schubert-motorsport.de) will be published next weekend. Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “Three quarters of our team is the same as last year. As Jörg Müller has moved to Japan, where he will support BMW Sports Trophy Team Studie, it was a logical step for us to move to secure the services of Jens Klingmann. He knows our team and did an outstanding job last year when he stood in for the injured Müller. I am confident we have two very competitive pairs of drivers. Our goal is clear: we want to compete for the titles in the Driver and Team competitions.”

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “After last season’s success, I am very happy to be able to line up together with Schubert Motorsport for a second year in the ADAC GT Masters. While we may have come up just short of winning the title in 2013, my
performances proved good enough to make it into BMW Motorsport’s squad for the Nürburgring 24 Hours. That is an important accolade for me. I am confident going into the new ADAC GT Masters season. The experience we gained last year means we ought to be
well prepared for the first two races in Oschersleben. However, only once we get out on the track will we discover just how we compare to our rivals.”

Claudia Hürtgen (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “I am really pleased that we have held on to the combination of Schubert Motorsport, the BMW Z4 GT3, Dominik and me. We have analysed last season’s weaknesses and are well prepared. The goal is to once again be in
contention for the title come the end of the season.”

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “I am really looking forward to contesting a whole season in one series again in 2014. Thank you very much to the Schubert team and BMW Motorsport for giving me this opportunity. I love driving on the Nürburgring-
Nordschleife, and at the Spa 24 Hours, but to contest an entire season in one series is a whole different challenge. I know the team and my team-mate Max really well since my guest appearance at the Sachsenring in 2013. My goal now is to be involved in the battle for the
title in my first complete season with Schubert Motorsport.”

Max Sandritter (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20):
“Last year was a learning experience for me. The BMW Z4 GT3 was a whole new world compared to the cars I had driven previously. Jörg Müller helped me to understand the car. The objective for 2014 is to consistently
achieve good results alongside Jens Klingmann, and to aim for at least the top five in the championship.”
