  • Elias Seppänen & Salman Owega are the youngest winning team of all time. 
  • Striking WEINSBERG OWN look puts the winning car in a league of its own.
  • Landgraf Motorsport team maintains the speedy Mercedes AMG GT3


Jandelsbrunn, October 2023. Not so long ago, a racing car with the unmistakable WEISENBERG OWN look was a pipe dream. It has since raced out of our dreams and onto the track, allowing the talented driving duo Elias Seppänen (Finland) and Salman Owega (Germany) to confidently end the 2023 ADAC GT Masters season in pole position. 
The two perfectly coordinated young drivers of the Mercedes AMG GT3 have also set a new record. At 18 and 19 years old, they are the youngest winning team of all time in this exciting racing series. Despite their age, these up‐and‐coming drivers not only impress with their ambition, but also provide a master class in routine, precision and concentration.

The experienced Landgraf Motorsport team maintains the 550 hp racing car, which is always immediately recognisable on the track, thanks to its striking WEINSBERG OWN design. The racing professionals from Gensingen in Rhineland‐Palatinate are familiar faces among the participants in the ADAC GT Masters Series, the international German GT championship. They won the Drivers’ Championship last season.

A special feature of the ADAC GT Masters is that two 60‐minute sprints take place on every racing weekend. A change of driver halfway through is mandatory. The Finnish‐German driving duo achieved four victories during the recently ended season. During the last racing weekend in Hockehnheim, however, things did not quite go as planned for the two young drivers, who had 

to settle for third place in the final race. Nevertheless, the pair had already charged to the top of the leader board in their WEINSBERG OWN racing car. Their lead was so big that none of the other competing teams could get on their tail. So much so, on the afternoon of 22 October 2023, Elias Seppänen and Salman Owega celebrated their outstanding achievement and were crowned champions. The entire WEINSBERG team would like to warmly congratulate them.
