Kreutzpointner twins join Team Driverse in ADAC GT4
Jacqueline and Alesia Kreuztpointner return to ADAC GT4 in all new line up for the female-forward Team Driverse ahead of the final races of the season.
Team Driverse - an innovative project that for the first time brings diversity and inclusion to the forefront in motorsport – announced a shuffle in their line up for the upcoming ADAC GT4 races. The team led and founded by Nicole Kösters entered the ADAC-sanctioned series for the first time in 2021, with Charlie Martin and Sandra van der Sloot behind the wheel of the BMW M4 GT4.
The team had a good start in the championship, before hitting some technical troubles that slowed down the development in the highly competitive series. The team made a guest start to the GT4-based DTM Trophy series – what is nowadays DTM's biggest stepping stone - before taking a round off from ADAC GT4 to regroup and better prepare for the final races of the season.
Team Driverse will thus be back on the grid at Hockenheim, with an all-new line up that brings back Jacqueline and Alesia Kreutzpointner to the series after their 2020 participation.
The 'Racing Twins' had in fact raced in the BMW M4 GT4 with MRS GT-Racing before an entry in NLS and, ultimately, competing full time in the brand new BMW M2 Cup.
In the BMW one make series, Jacqueline and Alesia raced for the first time on track at the same time instead of sharing a car and were regular Top-10 finishers, increasingly closer to the Top-5 in a few rounds. They completed the DTM-support series in eighth and tenth place respectively.
Their previous experience of the BMW M4 GT4 is thus an important starting point for their involvement with Team Driverse, as the team aims to strengthen its structure.
"Our credo is that everyone has a chance with us." – commented team manager Nicole Kösters. "Young talent in particular is very important to us. That's why we are very happy to welcome Alesia and Jacqueline, two promising talents, to the team."
"Together we will be fully motivated for the final spurt of this season".
Despite having started racing only in 2019, the 22-year-old sisters have therefore already a respectable amount of experience under their belt in GT4 machinery and fully share the core values behind the Team Driverse project.
"We firmly believe that ANYONE who has a passion and is willing to work hard for it can achieve their dreams and goals." – echoed Alesia. "It shouldn't matter what gender, background or faith you are. Together with the team, we want to deliver this message and hope to motivate others as well."
"We both learned a lot this year and were able to develop super in the BMW M2 Cup" – added Jacqueline. "Now we are very happy to be back in GT4 Germany", she said, as they will be back on known racetracks such as Hockenheim and Nurburgring.
"The GT4 Championship has also evolved and it will be exciting to see where we will be. Our aim is to adapt what we've learned to the BMW M4 GT4 and push ourselves and the team further in the final two rounds."
Their first race meeting behind the wheel of the #12 Team Driverse BMW will be at Hockenheimring on 23-24 October. Two one-hour races are contested each weekend, with driver change. Races are live streamed online at adac.de/motorsport.
