Munich. This weekend, the second event of the ADAC GT Masters at the Red Bull Ring is on the schedule for SSR Performance. After the successful start to the season in Oschersleben, Michael Ammermüller and Mathieu Jaminet travel to Austria as leaders in the drivers’ championship with 37 points. The reigning champion is also at the top of the field in the team category.
This position is to be built on from June 11th to 13th in Styria. For the first time, fans are again allowed on the 4,318 km long route. Even if only in smaller numbers, SSR Performance is happy about the support on site.
On the Monday after the event, the SSR Performance Trackday will also take place, where customers and partners can enjoy the race track themselves.
In 2021 SSR Performance can rely on the support of NIMEX GmbH. In motorsport, success will only be celebrated by teams that can rely 100% not only on technology, but also on all those involved and their partners. NIMEX GmbH has been an integral part of motorsport in German-speaking countries for 40 years now. You can not only see the right contact person by your side at many racetracks throughout Germany, but also at the Monheim location.

The Munich team will also be supported by the EDAG Group, Becker Carbon, Riemensperger Mechanische Werkstätte GmbH, Hochwald Sprudel, Cruisefire, Sonic Tools and KW Suspensions in 2021.
Stefan Schlund, Team Owner SSR Performance: “I hope to be able to earn as many points as possible. The Red Bull Ring is definitely a challenge for the Porsche, but I’m confident for the second race weekend of the season.”
Michael Cap, Head of Motorsports: “The whole team is looking forward to the race weekend at the Red Bull Ring, to which we are traveling as the current championship leader. For us as Munich residents, it’s almost like a small home Grand Prix. After the successful start of the season in Oschersleben, we are now well prepared for the second round of the ADAC GT Masters 2021 and will do everything we can to race at the very front!”
Wolfgang Hatz, Team Principal SSR Performance: “After the successful start of the season we will race at the Red Bull Ring with an additional weight of 20 kg. We are therefore not in the role of favorites in Austria. We will still fight for our championship lead with good positions.”
