Full program for the Team mcchip-dkr - NLS 1 and NES 500The long-awaited season opener of the Nürburgring Endurance Series 2021 starts this weekend. The Team mcchip-dkr will be at the start of the 66th ADAC Westfalenfahrt with two cars. The brand new KTM X-BOW GTX in the colors of the multi-oil manufacturer GTronix360° celebrates its premiere on the famous Nordschleife.
Due to the weather-related cancellation of the official test and setup drives, the Friday will be used to get in the mood for the new vehicle. The regular drivers Heiko Hammel and Dieter Schmidtmann will receive support this year from DTM Trophy Champion 2020 Tim Heinemann. The young and talented driver has prepared for the new challenge in karting and virtual racing. The KTM X-BOW GTX with number 921 will start in the CupX-class.
In class V4, the rookies Lucas Lange and Sascha Lott will tackle their first NLS race on a BMW E90 325i. After various RCN missions last year, the duo obtained their DMSB Permit Nordschleife B. In addition to the NLS race, the two drivers, the BMW E90 and a part of the team will drive to the opening race of the NES 500 at the Hockenheimring just one day later. By participating in the NES test day, which took place at the end of February, important impressions for the three-hour long-distance race could already be gathered.
The team will follow the racing events with a camera and present the videos on the mcchip-dkr YouTube-Channel a few days later.
