On the eve of the 2023 ADAC GT4 Germany's season, PROsport Racing announced a new line up: French racer Célia Martin will be joined by Fabienne Wohlwend at the wheel of the Aston Martin Vantage GT4. The team will field four cars - the most of all teams - and a total of three female drivers, as also Jessica Bäckman will represent the German team in her GT4 debut, alongside her brother Andreas. Fabienne Wohlwend, 25, returns to a full racing campaign after last year's W Series, where she placed 10th in the championship standings of the all-female F3 series with five top ten finishes in 2022 to her name. She had finished sixth in the two previous seasons, also claiming three podiums and one pole position. But Wohlwend - one of the most exciting female talents in Europe - is also no rookie of GT racing: before her return to formulas with W Series, the most successful racer in the history of Liechtenstein had raced in the Audi Sport TT Cup, as well as in Ferrari Challenge - where she made history in 2018, becoming the first woman to win the Ferrari World Finals with a remarkable victory in Monza. Wohlwend had finished third in the Ferrari one make series standings in 2018 and 2020-21, also finishing again second in the 2020 world finals. In a double program alongside W Series, Fabienne also raced at the Nordschleife in the NLS endurance series, contesting two 24 Hours of the Nürburgring in 2021 and 2022 with WS Racing. In an all-female effort, she stepped on the third place of the podium in the SP8T class in 2022, sharing the BMW M4 GT4 with Pippa Mann, Célia Martin and Carrie Schreiner. While she will return to the Green Hell in 2023 - having also claimed class victory in the qualifying race a couple of weeks ago - Wohlwend is set to team up with Martin also in her first full season of GT4 racing, in the highly competitive German series. A Nordschleife specialist, Célia Martin became the first Frenchwoman to race at the track in 2014. She moved to Germany to pursue a professional career in motorsport in 2017 and mostly drove in the NLS series until 2019, where she made a full-time appearance in the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy. As part of the Girls Only by WS Racing squad, she took class victory in 2021 in the 24 Hours of the Nürburgring, then adding another podium the following year. Having collected experience in GT4 machinery, Martin will also take on her first full campaign in ADAC GT4. "We are thrilled to share that we will be competing in the GT4 Germany Championship with PROsport", Wohlwend and Martin wrote. "This is an exciting new challenge and we can't wait to get behind the wheel." "We are incredibly grateful to Chris and the entire PROsport team for entrusting us with this amazing opportunity." Wohlwend and Martin will be the only all-female team in the season, which goes underway at Oschersleben on May 27-28. Five more championship rounds will follow, as the series will visit venues such as Zandvoort, Nürburgring, Lausitzring, Sachsenring and Hockenheim.
