One of the most experienced German race directors will become the central race director of the GT Winter Series. Werner Aichinger, known not only as Michael Schumacher’s companion, but also as the director of national and international race series for decades, will be dedicating himself to the GTWS from the coming winter.
Markus Gedlich, Managing Director of GTWS promoter Gedlich Racing: “With Werner we are taking another important step in terms of ensuring permanent quality. Werner will accompany the entire season and lead all races. We are very much looking forward to working together and to exciting and fair races.”
For Aichinger, the task is challenging because both the mix of cars and the colourful field of drivers are hard to find anywhere else.
Aichinger: “I’m looking forward to the international field of the GTWS and to getting to know new tracks. Besides, I’ve been with the GTWS from the very beginning, as I was involved in the conceptual design from the very beginning. That’s why I’m really looking forward to accompanying the whole season. Many of the teams know me – that’s always good for fair race management on an equal footing. In the inaugural season of the GTWS, I was already there once in Portimao. Now I’m looking forward to seeing the series again at all the races.”
The GT Winter Series says welcome!
