GR Supra GT4 set for ADAC GT4 Germany guest appearance

The race-winning GR Supra GT4 will make its debut in the ADAC GT4 Germany series on 22-24 October at Hockenheim wearing TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Germany colours and with an all-star driver crew.

A guest appearance in Germany’s leading GT4 endurance series will cap an exciting and successful season of competition with the GR Supra GT4 for Ring Racing, which enters the car at Hockenheim on behalf of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Germany.

Fresh from his third place in the 2021 DTM Trophy standings for TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Germany, Nico Verdonck will again drive the GR Supra GT4, looking for a third win of the season behind the wheel of the 430 bhp, rear-wheel drive racer.

Unlike DTM Trophy, ADAC GT4 Germany requires a two-driver line-up per car to take on the two one-hour races per event. Therefore, another Belgian GT ace, Antoine Potty, joins the team to drive alongside Nico.

At only 18-years-old, Antoine has already made a name for himself in the GT4 European Series during two years of competition with a GR Supra GT4 run by Classic&Modern Racing (CMR).

This season CMR and their drivers Antoine and Stephane Lemeret were genuine title contenders, winning the Silver category twice and finishing on the podium in seven of the 12 races on their way to second in the championship.

In addition to its eye-catching presence on the track, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Europe (TGR-E) will be present in the Hockenheim paddock, offering fans and racing teams a close-up look at the GR Supra GT4 as well as the spare parts and technical support truck which supports customers at races tracks around Europe.

Florian von Hasselbach, Group Leader Customer Motorsport at TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Europe, said: “ADAC GT4 Germany is a top championship and it’s about time that the GR Supra GT4 was given a chance to show what it can do on this stage. Thanks to the ADAC for their help to make this happen and of course to our friends at Ring Racing, who we know will be ready for another exciting fight on track. Working with teams like Ring Racing and CMR helps TGR-E to constantly improve our customer racing knowledge and service, and they have consistently performed well in the very competitive world of GT4. So we are excited to see what Nico and Antoine can do at Hockenheim.”
