Schubert Motorsport kicks off the new ADAC GT Masters season this weekend with its home race in Oschersleben (DE), strong partners, and two impressive pairs of drivers. Team Principal Torsten Schubert’s outfit will once again field two BMW Z4 GT3s.
The number 19 car will be shared throughout the season by the experienced duo of Uwe Alzen (DE) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE). Hürtgen is now in her fourth ADAC GT Masters season with the team. For the last two years she has been in contention for the title right down to the very last race weekend. Alzen is also an old acquaintance of Schubert Motorsport, having driven for the team at the Nürburgring 24 Hours (DE) on several occasions. Alzen is unable to race this weekend, with Jesse Krohn (FI), the 2014 BMW Motorsport Junior of the Year, taking his place at the opening round of the ADAC GT Masters. Alzen will return to make his debut for Schubert Motorsport in the series at the Red Bull Ring on the second race weekend.
Sharing the driving duties in the number 80 BMW Z4 GT3 are Jens Klingmann (DE) and Dominik Baumann (AT). Both drivers drove for Schubert Motorsport in last year’s ADAC GT Masters, but in different cars. They now join forces in the BMW Z4 GT3 powered by HUAWEI, the new main sponsor of Schubert Motorsport. HUAWEI is one of the world’s leading providers of information technology and telecommunication solutions. The company employs over 140,000 employees in more than 140 countries around the world.
The Red Bulletin is another strong partner on board. The name of Red Bull’s sport and lifestyle magazine will be visible on the cars and the drivers’ overalls in the ADAC GT Masters and at the 24-hour race. Schubert Motorsport can also continue to count on the support of Kärcher, H&R and many other partners.
Torsten Schubert (Team Principal): “After completing our intense preparations for the Nürburgring 24 Hours with BMW Motorsport, we are now very much looking forward to getting back to business in the ADAC GT Masters. We have two strong pairs of drivers and, in the BMW Z4 GT3, a car that we know very well from previous years. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Timo Frings to the team as the new Team Manager and successor to Stefan Wendl. We are sure he will be able to follow on from the successful work done by his predecessor. I would also particularly like to thank our partners, without whose commitment to motorsport we would not be able to test ourselves against the opposition at such a high level.”
