The young Spaniard Marc de Fulgencio on the AMG GT4 #9 can also be proud of the final result of the first DTM Trophy season. Marc improved from race to race and showed what he is made of. His hard-working collection of points finally brought him 3rd place in the junior class. Unfortunately he could not show this again at the final race weekend: After the start in race one he was hit so hard by a competitor that his Mercedes was damaged so badly that it was impossible to repair it on site. For the second race the junior could not even start. A disappointing race weekend, but which ultimately ended peacefully with a podium place for the overall performance.
Leipert Motorsport sums up the first DTM Trophy season positively
Six race weekends, several victories and each race weekend podium places: The team from Wegberg, supported by MOTUL, is delighted with the very good seasonal performance. On the final weekend, the team was also able to celebrate second place overall in the team classification. The next big success after winning the team classification in the GT4 European Championship 2019!
Team manager Marcel Leipert: Many thanks to our drivers Jan, Fidel and Marc as well as to our staff, who ensured an excellent debut season in the DTM Trophy. Vice champion, champion of the XP class, 3rd place in the junior ranking and 2nd place in the team ranking - in other words, on the podium in all areas. After our PRO-AM championship title, Silver Cup vice champion title and winning the team classification in the GT4 European Series 2019, we are delighted to have been at the forefront of the DTM platform. Despite the Corona exertions it was a great season and we are already looking forward to next year!
