Another motorsport chapter will open this year for Leipert Motorsport: In the debut season of the newly established ADAC GT4 Germany, the successful team will start with a Mercedes AMG GT4 and two young talents.
Wegberg, Germany – Thursday, 07.03.2019Last year the starting signal was given for a new GT4 Championship. Within the series of the ADAC GT Masters, the ADAC GT4 Germany will be held for the first time in 2019. In addition to an extensive TV programme on Sport 1, an exciting racing programme awaits motorsport enthusiasts: After all, the ADAC has already received more than 30 entries. Of course, Leipert Motorsport can't be missing! For the German team supported by MOTUL, this is a return to the ADAC platform where the team was active in the GT Masters from 2009 to 2013.
Australian Morgan Haber at the side of junior Luci Trefz
The team will start with a Mercedes AMG GT4, which has already been put to use by Leipert Motorsport in the European GT4 Championships last year. The racing car will be piloted by Morgan Haber (25, Australia) and Luci Trefz (16, Germany). The Australian Morgan Haber comes from the other side of the globe. But he is no stranger to Leipert Motorsport anymore: In 2017 he already collected the first kilometres together with Jan Kisiel in the Lamborghini. One year later he was a member of the winning team of the SPX class of the 24H Series in Leipzig Motorsport.
Double shift for Luci Trefz: The up-and-coming talent, who is moving directly from karting to GT racing, will compete this year not only in the GT4 Germany but also in the GT4 European Championship with Leipert Motorsport. For the 16-year-old, this is a tight programme in which he can especially learn from the team’s motorsport experience that reaches back many years.
The ADAC GT4 Germany
The ADAC GT4 Germany is seen as the "little sister" of the ADAC GT Masters. Two races are held every weekend, with two drivers sharing the cockpit. The points are added up at a total of six events. At the end of the year the winners will be chosen. This also includes the junior classification, for which Leipert Motorsport's driver Luci Trefz will collect pointsas well.
The races will be broadcast live by the German TV station Sport 1. All races can also be watched on livestream.
The season opener will take place in the Magdeburger Börde in Oschersleben (26.-28.04.2019). Before that, Leipert Motorsport will meet the other GT4 teams for the first time at the official test days in Oschersleben at the beginning of April.
