The reigning champion team Schnitzelalm Racing returns for the second race weekend of the GT Winter Series in Estoril.
In the 2021/2022 GT Winter Series season, the two Schnitzelalm Racing drivers Marcel Marchewicz and Michael Sander won the title. At the wheel of a BMW M2 CS Racing, the two drivers were finally able to celebrate in the paddock of the Formula 1 circuit in Barcelona. From the second race weekend in Estoril, the racing team around Thomas Angerer, who is a supporter of the GT Winter Series concept, will return to the racing series. At the remaining five events, the team will field GT3 and GT4 cars from Mercedes-AMG.
The first driver duo is set to be the two youngsters Philipp Walsdorf and Jay Mo Härtling in a Mercedes-AMG GT4. The racing team, which has already celebrated successes on the Nordschleife and in other national GT series, will also field a second GT4 for alternating drivers. The team wants to promote young talent and scout out up-and-coming talent on the two production-based GT cars.
Mercedes-AMG GT3 at the start
Schnitzelalm Racing will also be represented in the GT3 class and will enter a Mercedes-AMG GT3 in selected races, thus further strengthening the GT3 class. The drivers of the car have not yet been determined. At the 2021/2022 season finale in Barcelona, Schnitzelalm Racing fielded a GT3 car in racing action for the first time in the team’s history – with Peter Terting and Carrie Schreiner scoring a podium finish on the GP circuit.
“We are very excited about our return to the GT Winter Series!” said Thomas Angerer. “With our title win last year, we have fond memories of this race series. For us, this race series is an important platform where we can promote young talent. Without a lot of pressure, we can put talented young drivers to work here.”
