The experienced motorsport team had full hands with the car trio. But thanks to many years of racing experience, the team with drivers Fidel Leib (32, Germany), Jan Kisiel (26, Poland) and Marc de Fulgencio (20, Spain) started well prepared in the first qualifying session. Fidel Leib, bronze driver (class XP), demonstrated his know-how in the Mercedes AMG GT4: In his first sprint race in the DTM Trophy he achieved P10 in the overall standings.
Also the junior Marc de Fulgencio presented impressive results. The just 20-year-old started from P6 and set the fastest lap during the race! However, due to a drive-through penalty he could not reach the podium. The young Spanish crossed the finish line in P8, P4 in the junior class.
Leipert Motorsport regular driver Jan Kisiel, who knows the Mercedes AMG GT4 like the back of his hand, drove a also a great race and could defend his 4 place until the finishline. So he collected his first iportant championship points - as well as his team-mates Leib and de Fulgencio.

The Sunday continued at high speed for the Wegberger. Unimpressed by what was happening around him, Fidel Leib drove a clean race with his Profi Car branded AMG GT4 in the second round as well. Started on P14 he crossed the finish line on P13 and could be again happy about the cup in the XP class.
Team mate Jan Kisiel, who was competing for the overall standings, once again completed a strong race. Starting from eighth place overall, he worked his way steadily forwards and saw the chequered flag in fifth place.
For a short moment, however, Leipert Motorsport held its breath when Marc de Fulgencio, who was to start from the second row of the grid in P3, had to return to the pits before the start of race 2. The reason was a malfunction of the fire extinguisher. But the Junior mastered the start from the pit lane with flying colours and was chasing after to catch up with the field. Also this time the Spanish showed his talent and finished the race, after several exciting overtaking manoeuvres, in P8 overall and P4 in the junior class.
