New customer racing project in GTC Race / Goodyear 60 for team mcchip-dkr
Written on . Published on .
The GTC Race / Goodyear 60 racing series 2020 starts on the last weekend in March at the Hockenheimring. For the first time, the team mcchip-dkr is represented with two Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO, which will be piloted by Mike Hansch and Bernd Kleinbach. The driver duo has been active in various sports cars and GT series for several years and is looking forward to the new challenge after the long winter break. Both drivers will tackle the 30-minute races of the GTC and the 60-minute special classification of the Goodyear 60. In the past few months, both Lamborghini have been converted in the halls of Team mcchip-dkr with the factory EVO upgrade and KW 4-way competition dampers. With these adjustments, the Italian GT3 vehicles are significantly more competitive. Both Lamborghini c have changed visually through a new design by Bitbook.ag and Fitness Future. The team went on a two-day test at the 5.8-kilometer long Circuit Paul Ricard in southern France in early March for season preparation. Important findings in the area of tire and suspension setting were collected under dry and wet track conditions. Bernd Kleinbach completed his first test kilometers in the Lamborghini with the new EVO upgrade. Mike Hansch was able to test his Lamborghini in Ascari in December and was able to build on the performance. Further test drives will take place on March 23rd, 2020 on the Nürburgring Grand Prix course in order to carry out setting work for the 5th GTC Race / Goodyear 60 race, which will be held in the Eifel region in mid-September. Bernd Kleinbach and Mike Hansch will also use the official test day at Hockenheimring to be well prepared for the start of the season. From the second round, the GTC Race / Goodyear 60 series then starts in the supporting program of the DTM. Dates GTC Race / Goodyear 60
