VLN 9: Season finale without finish

The 44. DMV Münsterlandpokal marked the finale of the VLN season 2019 on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. In glorious sunshine, over 170 cars raced for the last time over the distance of four hours through the Green Hell. The GTronix360° Team mcchip-dkr again brought the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO with the drivers Heiko Hammel and Dieter Schmidtmann at the start. For the last VLN race, the team came up with something very special. As a thank you to the great VLN fans, they were able to immortalize themselves on "Bolles" roof. In the morning qualifying, Hammel fortunately put the Lamborghini in eighth place overall, making it the second-best SP9 Pro-AM vehicle.

Due to the good starting position, start driver Hammel made up several positions at the beginning of the race and advanced to fourth overall despite the strong GT3 field. In the course of the stint, the driving behavior worsened for unknown reasons until now and Hammel could not keep up with the speed at the top of the field. After a long double stint, Hammel handed over to Schmidtmann, who left the Lamborghini after seven laps for safety reasons in the pit, because the driving behavior was significantly worse, especially with degrading tires. A total loss at the season finale you did not want to risk. The team is still looking for the reason for the deteriorating performance.

It was a difficult first VLN season with the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO for the GTronix360° Team mcchip-dkr. The team was involved in the Nissan GT-R Nismo project earlier this year, until the 24-hour race. Therefore, the team could only start late with the active development of the vehicle. In the last VLN races, the team learned a lot about the weak points and strengths of the car and gained important insights for the future. The next weeks will show whether the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO will start in 2020 again in the VLN or in another GT3 series. In the coming season, the team will definitely use a Mercedes-Benz C300 in production class VT2.
