Preview: ADAC GT Masters – Rd. 3 – Red Bull Ring (Austria)
Located in the idyllic Austrian Alps overlooking the village of Spielberg, the undulating Red Bull Ring plays host to round three of the ADAC GT Masters campaign this weekend, with Jimmy Eriksson eager to return to his Team Rosberg GT3 Lamborghini following a six-week break.
Rd. 2 – Most (27-29 April)
The most recent ADAC GT Masters round took place at the end of April at Most in the Czech Republic.
Jimmy Eriksson and co-driving team-mate Jonathan Judek came home 20th in the 34-strong field in the opening Saturday race, finishing as the third best Lamborghini on a weekend when the Italian manufacturer was struck down by Balance of Performance rules following recent successes.
In Sunday’s Race 2, the Swedish/German Team Rosberg duo was then black-flagged following an incident at the first corner.

“We actually made quite a number of improvements to our package for Most, but we weren’t able to show it that weekend because all Lamborghinis were hit by more stringent BoP regulations. For Red Bull Ring, these have been eased again, so it will be interesting to see where in the pecking order we’ll slot in.
We know that we’re still not where we want to be, but hopefully we can be in the mix and take the fight – first and foremost – to the other Lamborghini teams. That is our main target for now.”
