The 2023 ADAC GT Masters season has been a wide open affair for the first half of the season. With the Nurburgring Sprint Circuit showcasing some of the most exciting and feather ruffling action of the year so far. Now, after a long summer break, the GT Masters head to the Sachsenring to begin the second half of the 2023 campaign.

The Sachsenring circuit is one of Germanies most institutional racing venues. Its 13 corners and road racing style layout, make it one of the most exciting and memorable tracks on the Calendar. Famed for hosting the DTM in the 2000s and for hosting the MotoGP German Grand Prix, the circuit has also been a regular stop on the GT Masters tour. And has always produced dramatic and memorable action. The venue has even hosted, over its life, GT1, TCR, Formula 3, World Superbike and Super Touring competition.

The format is the same as ever, with two races over the two day event. With one race per day and Qualifying for each race set on each day too. The championship has seen a reshuffle after the Nurburgring weekend. Finn Gehrsitz and Sven Müller now lead the championship in their Team Joos Porsche with the Landgraf Mercedes Crew of Salman Owega and Elias Seppänen in second. Third is held by Jaxon Evans and Tim Zimmermann in their Huber Porsche with their teammates Jannes Fittje and Nico Menzel in fourth. Fifth is currently held by Benjamín Hites and Marco Mapelli. The leading Lamborghini crew with Eduardo Coseteng and Ben Green’s Schubert BWM in sixth. The top 4 are covered by just 10 points going into the second half of the season.

Elsewhere, in the GT4 German Championship, the premiere feeder series to GT Masters. The championship is led by Hugo Sasse and Mike David Ortmann, with Denis Bulatov and Simon Connor Primm in second. Jan Springob and David Jahn are third in points. The top five rounded out by Jannes Fittje and Marcel Lenerz in fourth and Finn Zulauf and Daniel Gregor in fifth. The championship will make its penultimate stop of 2023 at the Sachsenring alongside the GT Masters stars.

The action from GT Masters and GT4 Germany is set to commence on the 9th and 10th of Sptember. All the action can be viewed live via the ADAC livestream on YouTube and for GT Masters itself, TV coverage is available on Viaplay and Viaplay streaming.
