The Mercedes-AMG works driver starts for Madpanda Motorsport in Zandvoort. The 2012 champion hopes to help the team with his wealth of experience.
Maximilian Götz (36/Uffenheim) is returning to the German GT Championship and will line up for the Madpanda Motorsport team at round three of the ADAC GT Masters in Zandvoort (24th to 26th June). The runner-up in the recent 24-hour race at the Nürburgring replaces Jannes Fittje (22/Langenhain) and shares the cockpit of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo with Ezequiel Perez Companc (27/RA). “I am thrilled to be back in the ADAC GT Masters. It is a top series, with which I am very familiar. I know the car very well,” says Götz.
The experienced Mercedes-AMG works driver will help the Madpanda Motorsport team to find its feet in its first season in the German GT Championship. “I want to support the team and help where I can. It is obviously a case of ‘in at the deep end’, arriving in Zandvoort without having done a test – particularly as I don’t know the new track there. However, I love these challenges. I helped out in the GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Cup and promptly finished on the podium,” says the 36-year-old. On the subject of more outings in the ADAC GT Masters, Götz says: “I will see how it goes in Zandvoort, and am expecting us to put in a good performance. After that, we’ll see. First of all, I just want to enjoy being back in the ADAC GT Masters.”
All ADAC GT Masters races start at 13:00. International viewers can watch the qualifying and the races live on adac.de/motorsport, the new ADAC Motorsports YouTube channel youtube.com/ADACMotorsports and motorsport.tv.
