Carrie Schreiner returns to GTC-Race
Alongside her debut in the new F1 Academy, Carrie Schreiner will also continue her GT3 racing programs, as she returns to GTC-Race - after winning the GT60 by Pirelli title last year - for three rounds at the wheel of the Land-Motorsport's Audi R8 LMS GT3.
German racing driver Carrie Schreiner made headlines last month, when she announced a surprise move to the newly-founded F1 Academy series, an all-female championship at F4 level promoted by Formula 1. Schreiner, an expert GT3 racer, had switched to GT racing early in her career and had since then climbed the ranks in some of Europe's top GT series, including ADAC GT Masters, Italian GT, NLS, 24H Series, GTC. Today, the young German announced her second 2023 program: she will in fact also continue to race in GT3 machinery, sharing the Audi R8 LMS GT3 with Peter Terting in three rounds of the GTC Race.
While it will be interesting to see Schreiner's return to F4 in the F1 Academy series - seven years since last racing single seaters - Carrie will also have the chance to return to the familiar territory of the German GT series, where she claimed the title in the GT60 by Pirelli category in 2022. Schreiner and Terting will race for Land-Motorsport, a team also competing in ADAC GT Masters as well as at the Nürburgring Endurance Series. The two have shared a wheel last year on numerous occasions, including starts in the NLS top class. Schreiner, who has raced with several brands in the last few years, will return to the Audi platform after driving Mercedes, Ferrari and Porsche in the past couple of years. "We are delighted to welcome Carrie and Peter to the team," said Land-Motorsport's team manager Christian Land. "The connection has been there for a long time. We've even competed against Carrie in the ADAC GT Masters, which is why we can assess her talent very well. Added to this is the experience that both of them bring with them from numerous racing series.” In 2022, Schreiner secured her sixth championship title in her career - her third in GT racing after three in karting - in GTC-Race's endurance format, the Pirelli GT60. The series features two sprint races and an endurance 60-minute race with driver change per each race meeting. The 2023 season will have five rounds, visiting Germany's top racing venues. Due to clashing dates with F1 Academy, Schreiner will start the GT-Race season at Lausitzring on 2-4 June, then will contest the two Nürburgring weekends - one on the GP and one on the short layout - on 1-2 July and 13-15 October. Schreiner will also return to the Nordschleife with all-female team Girls Only by WS Racing in NLS, sharing a BMW M4 GT4 with Célia Martin, Fabienne Wohlwend, Beitske Visser and, at the 24H of the Nürburgring, Pippa Mann.
