SSR Performance celebrates sensational second win of the season
The SSR Performance driver duo Michael Ammermüller (GER) and Mathieu Jaminet (FRA) successfully defended their championship lead in Austria with a victory and subsequent sixth place.
After the foundation for a successful weekend had already been laid in the free practice sessions, the race started on Saturday from the fourth grid position. Michael Ammermüller was able to work his way to the front until the pit stop and handed over the Porsche 911 GT3 R to Mathieu Jaminet in second place. The Frenchman took the lead with thrilling overtaking maneuvers. Shortly before the end of the race, a safety car phase made things even more exciting. But Jaminet pulled away from his rivals here as well and finally crossed the Red Bull Ring finish line as the outstanding winner. The defending champions from Munich thus claimed their second race win of the season.
In Sunday’s race of the German GT Championship, which was marked by numerous safety car phases and a race interruption at the beginning, SSR Performance was able to finish the race in sixth place. The result was particularly important for the team and driver standings, as it meant that the lead in the standings was further defended.
