ADAC GT Masters grid for 2012 is complete

The ADAC GT Masters grid for 2012 is complete. A record field of 44 super sportscars representing 13 different brands tackle the ‘league of super sportscars’ at the opening round at the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben between 30 March and 1 April. The two remaining grid slots available went to the Dutch team DB Motorsport which fields a pair of BMW Z4. Grid positions for the ADAC GT Masters season 2012 were never in greater demand. In the final weeks before the entry deadline more than 50 registrations for the maximum 44 grid places available were received by the ADAC. The ADAC awarded the final positions based on brand variety and sporting fairness to the BMW team DB Motorsport. The Dutch team was a wild card entry at the ADAC Masters Weekend in Assen last year. A reserve list was established for the interested teams that could unfortunately not be considered for the limited number of grid places. In addition, wild card entries at individual ADAC Masters Weekends, subject to the capacity of the circuits and track approval, are still possible. The ADAC GT Masters 2012 sets new records as far as popularity and brand variety are concerned with 44 super sportscars from 13 brands. Competing in the ADAC GT Masters for the first time are the new McLaren MP4-12C with Formula 1 technology, the US muscle car Chevrolet Camaro and the legendary Japanese sportscar Nissan GT-R. Aston Martin celebrates its comeback with the new V12 Vantage. The newcomers from England, Japan and the USA face up to the competition from Audi, BMW, BMW ALPINA, Corvette, Ferrari, Ford, Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. The 16 races of the ADAC GT Masters in 2012 are held once again during seven ADAC Masters Weekends and in support of the ADAC Truck Grand Prix event at the Nürburgring. The eight events, each with two races, are all held on permanent circuits in Germany as well as the Red Bull Ring in Austria and in Zandvoort, Holland and are again broadcast live on TV. Every super sportscar competing in the ADAC GT Masters runs on high-performance tyres from new exclusive tyre partner YOKOHAMA.The ADAC GT Masters season 2012 schedule:31.03 – 01.04.2012 - Motorsport Arena Oschersleben05.05 – 06.05.2012 - Zandvoort / Nethertland09.06 – 10.06.2012 - Sachsenring14.07 – 15.07.2012 - Nürburgring (ADAC Truck-Grand-Prix)*11.08 – 12.08.2012 - Red Bull Ring / Austria25.08 – 26.08.2012 - Lausitzring15.09 – 16.09.2012 - Nürburgring (Grand Prix circuit)29.09 – 30.09.2012 - Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg* Only ADAC GT Masters and ADAC Formel Masters (sprint track)
