•    Haegeli by T2 Racing beats MiddleCap racing with Scuderia Praha by just 53 seconds at 2021 Hankook 12H HOCKENHEIMRING.

•    Leipert Motorsport on the podium in successful GT3-class return.

•    Bas Koeten Racing takes 991 1-2 ahead of championship leader DUWO Racing.

•    9und11Racing secures GTX win ahead of troubled Reiter Engineering.

•    PROsport Racing back on top in GT4.




Haegeli by T2 Racing has secured its first win in the 24H SERIES powered by Hankook after a fighting drive at the Hankook 12H HOCKENHEIMRING against MiddleCap racing with Scuderia Praha and Leipert Motorsport.



With all three GT3 contenders going into this afternoon’s restart on the lead lap, the Haegeli by T2 Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R (#66, Pieder Decurtins / Manuel Lauck / Marc Basseng) made a demon start to immediately take the overall lead ahead of the MiddleCap racing with Scuderia Praha Ferrari 488 GT3 (#11, Matúš Výboh / Josef Král / Dennis Waszek), the pair continuing their battle for position across the next few laps.



An early pit stop though for the Leipert Motorsport Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo (#10, Brendon Leitch / Tyler Cooke / Fidel Leib / Seb Morris), plus mixed strategies for both the Porsche and the Ferrari, meant the lead continued to swap between all three contenders throughout the afternoon. The die was cast during the final Code 60 though with a perfectly-timed pit stop from Haegeli by T2 Racing heading into the final hour, a call that ultimately secured the German team’s first 24H SERIES win in only its second series outing.



The competition was so tight that Marc Basseng collected the chequered at the end of 384 laps of the 4.574km Hockenheimring just 53 seconds ahead of a hard-charging Josef Král.



“It’s absolutely unbelievable,” Marc Basseng explained to radiolemans.com’s Ben Constanduros. “It’s our second race with this team and the new car, and now we’ve won! It was really hard, a big challenge, but our strategy was absolutely perfect and we made no mistakes. We had a little bit of luck as well, but in the end that’s what you need to win a race like this.”



Despite losing time during its penultimate stop for fuel, Leipert Motorsport completed a superb run to finish 3rd on the German team’s first GT3 outing since 2017. Less than one lap back, the CP Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 (#85, Charles Putman / Charles Espenlaub / Joe Foster / Shane Lewis), which had been running 3rd in the closing stages, was forced to make a final splash-and-dash for fuel just two laps from home. The American team held on to finish a strong 4th.



Audi R8 LMS GT3s finished 5th, 6th and 7th on the road as Rutronik Racing by TECE (#18, Michael Doppelmayr / Pierre Kaffer / Elia Erhart / Swen Herberger) led home both the #34 (Gustav Edelhof / Elmar Grimm / Max Edelhoff) and the #88 (Pierre-Yves Paque / Martin Lechmann / Vincent Piemonte / Christian Kranenberg) Car Collection Motorsport entries. The latter had a difficult start to the day with two spins early on, one of which was on the way to the grid.  



Bas Koeten Racing took an impressive 1-2 finish in the 991 class, the Dutch team’s solo-entered Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (#925, Marcel van Berlo / Glenn van Berlo / Bart van Helden) leading home the ‘sister’ NKPP Racing by Bas Koeten Racing Cup car (#991, Harry Hilders / Gijs Bessem / Bas Barenbrug) after a metronimic run. Willi Motorsport by Ebimotors (#955, Fabrizio Broggi / Sergiu Nicolae / Sabino de Castro) had been on-course to finish 3rd, but a long pit stop on the cusp of the final hour opened the door for DUWO Racing (#909, Andrey Mukovoz / Stanislav Sidoruk / Sergey Peregudov) to secure the final rostrum spot almost within sight of the flag.



The result means DUWO Racing now leads the Overall GT Teams’ standings with 69 points.



The 9und11 Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup MR (#719, Tim Scheerbarth / Georg Goder / Ralf Oehme / Martin Schlüter) took an impressive GTX-class win on its 24H SERIES debut, despite the Porsche running out of fuel on-track at one stage. Reiter Engineering (#724, Horst Felbermayr Jr. / Eike Angermayr / Nicolai Elghanayan / Mads Siljehaug) actually led the category going into the overnight intervention, but was forced to take a 12-lap penalty to work on the KTM X-BOW GTX overnight.




Drivetrain issues continued to plague the German team on Saturday, though the KTM managed to hold off the Vortex V8 Vortex 1.0 (#701, Philippe Bonnel / Nicolas Nobs / Bastien Gouret / Arnaud Gomez) for 2nd in GTX.



Having taken its fourth consecutive podium this season in the 24H SERIES, Vortex V8 retains its second place in the Overall GT Teams’ standings, just nine points behind DUWO Racing.



PROsport Racing (#401, Nico Verdonck / Rodrigue Gillion / Kurt Hensen) completed an impressive recovery drive to collect GT4 class honours at Hockenheim, the Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4 having already ended qualifying in the barriers on Saturday and lost time to a brake issue at the very start of the race later that afternoon.



The ST Racing BMW M4 GT4 (#438, Samantha Tan / Chandler Hull / Jon Miller / Nick Wittmer) similarly recovered from its own front left brake disc drama but was later forced to retire with rear end damage.
