Seyffarth Motorsport, one of the very first teams to enter the ADAC GT Masters grid, will return to the prestigious series with Audi in the final weekend of the season. When the quest for the 2022 German GT Championship ends at the Hockenheimring in Baden-Württemberg from October 21 to 23, the team from Querfurt in Saxony-Anhalt will return to their roots in an away race. The trip will give the team an idea of ​​where they stand against their rivals as Seyffarth Motorsport look to make a permanent return to the ADAC GT Masters next season. The Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II will be driven in the season finale by Robin Rogalski (22/PL) and Audi Sport customer driver Frederik Verwisch (36/B).

Seyffarth Motorsport entered the Porsche 997 GT3 Cup line-up when the championship was launched in 2007. In 2012, the team switched to the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 and currently runs Audi race cars – with great success. This year, the team finished second overall and second in the team standings in the GT3 class of the GTC Race, which is part of the ADAC Racing Weekend. They also claimed victory in the SemiPro class of the GT3 Sprint Championship thanks to Robin Rogalski. The idea to start again in the ADAC GT Masters gradually matured during the season. Partners and sponsors were won immediately, drivers were quickly found. “We are very happy to participate in the German GT Championship again. We know from the past how strong this series is and we want to use this visitor to see where we are and how competitive we are,” says team manager Tobias Seyfarth.

Robin Rogalski also knows how tough the competition is in the German GT Championship. The 22-year-old knows the platform from his ADAC GT4 appearances in Germany in 2021: “This is my first start in the ADAC GT Masters and I’m really looking forward to it. Not sure what to expect, just that the opposition is incredibly fast. I was 16 before I started racing, so I don’t yet have the experience that many others have in the industry. I will do my best and want to learn as much as possible from Frederic. He started alongside Valentino Rossi and Nico Muller in GT World Challenge Europe this season. It’s very special for me to ride with him.”

Tobias Seyfarth adds: “In Frederik we have an experienced driver from whom Robin can learn a lot. Moving on from GTC Race is a very big opportunity for him. It’s great for us as a team to have them both involved. They can give us important feedback. Racing at Hockenheim is a test for us as we would like to start regularly in the ADAC GT Masters next season.”
