Lubner Motorsport returns to TCR Germany at the Hockenheimring

Lubner Motorsport will bring its Opel Astra TCR cars back to ADAC TCR Germany this weekend, fielding Steffen Redlich and Philipp Walsdorf for their débuts in the series.

Having lost two of the Honda entrants of Profi Car Team Halder after the last event at the Nürburgring, the grid for the third event of the year will be bolstered by the return of Lubner Motorsport.

Both Redlich and Walsdorf will race the ageing Astra TCR model, which has only made three appearances in major international TCR sprint championships in 2020, all in TCR Italy.

19-year-old Walsdorf has only recently converted to car racing, having previously competed in the Opel Astra OPC Cup in the VLN and the DMV National Endurance Series in Germany.

Walsdorf completed a test run in the team’s Astra last week at the Hockenheimring, and will be joined for this weekend’s event by 28-year-old Redlich, who has also competed in the DMV NES 500.

“We are looking forward to the guest start in the ADAC TCR Germany,” said Team Principal Mirko Lubner. “We have no expectations of this event in terms of the result.

“Our goal is to do a good job and have fun at the same time. More cannot be expected with the conditions. Of course, it would be great to have a car in the top ten in the race.

“The level in the ADAC TCR Germany is very high. Anyone who knows us knows that we will try everything.

“With patience of the drivers and the team, a lot is possible. Everyone is highly motivated and looking forward to the task ahead.”

Elsewhere, 54-year-old Niki Schelle, a rally driver and TV presenter in Germany, will race the VIP car for Hyundai Team Engstler.
