VLN 6: Top vehicle and unnecessary time penaltiesThe second half of the season for the Endurance Championship Nürburgring 2019 was heralded last Saturday with the 42nd RCM DMV Grenzlandrennen.
The Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO from the GTronix360 ° Team mcchip-dkr was finally able to show what he is capable of. With the best qualifying result of the season, Lamborghini factory rider Franck Perera placed the Huracán GT3 EVO in third place and equalized the 6th place out of the 4th VLN race.
Because of an offense under double yellow, unfortunately, it was not at position 3 on the grid and finally our start driver Heiko Hammel had to start the race from the last starting position of the first group. The first laps on rain tires went very well for Hammel, who fought his way up to position 13 in his first stint. Dieter Schmidtmann then took over the steering wheel and was able to line up Bolle in position 7 of the overall field until the intermediate tires were run down. The next tire change was also the next driver change. For the next three Laps, Franck Perera drove on slicks, which then gave way to a set of rain tires. Unfortunately, the catch-up stagnated afterwards. In heavy rain, bad visibility and penalty minutes, the team drove of a thirteenth overall place at the end.
Regular driver Heiko Hammel: "It was not the result for which we competed, but we are working hard to get the Lamborghini further forward. The inconsistencies in the setting are definitely eliminated and a top result will come!
Thanks to the members of the GTronix360 ° Team mcchip-dkr, who did an outstanding job. Every pit stop was completed at the minimum time without stress and the car was perfectly prepared as always. "
For the 7th edition of the VLN (59th ADAC Reinoldus Endurance Race), on September 28th, the team wants to show on which course it belongs with Bolle.
