ADAC GT4 Germany.

Second win of the season for RN Vision STS.

Marius Zug and Gabriele Piana claimed their second win of the season in ADAC GT4 Germany, having previously tasted success at Oschersleben. After 33 laps of racing, the RN Vision STS duo crossed the finish line first in the #7 BMW M4 GT4 to take victory in Saturday’s race at Zandvoort. Zug started the race from pole position, but initially dropped back through the field. An early pit stop and a change of driver brought the BMW M4 GT4 back to second place. Piana showed plenty of fighting spirit to regain the lead and finish the race with a comfortable advantage of 19.9 seconds. This success was enough to guarantee that Zug wins the Junior competition. In Sunday’s second race, Michael Schrey and Thomas Jäger finished fourth in the Hofor Racing by Bonk Motorsport run #2 BMW M4 GT4. They were followed home by Piana and Zug in fifth place. Claudia Hürtgen and Michael Fischer also had a top ten finish in the #3 BMW M4 GT4, again fielded by Hofor Racing by Bonk Motorsport. They crossed the finish line in ninth place.

They were the best-placed BMW drivers in fifth place in Saturday’s race. Krohn/Chen failed to finish race one.
