Team mcchip-dkr with a full motorsport calendar!The new motorsport season is about to start. The team from Mechernich is starting with new cars in various racing series this year! A BMW M240i Racing was acquired over the winter and a BMW 318ti Cup was built. In addition, mcchip-dkr supervised the first steps in motorsport of the Hamburg TV chef Steffen Henssler with his Porsche 911 (991.2) GT3 Cup MR SP PRO! In addition to seven track days, with the second evolutionary stage of the racing vehicle operated by Manthey Racing, Steffen Henssler will also take a seat in the BMW M240i Racing to earn his international C license so that he can compete in future racing events with the Porsche 911 (991.2) GT3 Cup MR SP PRO. In order to achieve the desired target this year, some races in the RCN, at the DMV Racing Days and the ADAC NATC Weekends are planned!
The team remains true to its roots and will contest the entire season of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS) with the BMW M240i Racing. The driver trio Lucas Lange, Sascha Lott and Alex Meixner dare to step out of the V4 class into the BMW M240i Racing by Goodyear Cup class. Of course, participation in the season highlight, the 24-hour race on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, is already firmly planned. Here the driver trio gets support from the Green Hell expert Sascha Hanke.
The BMW M240í Racing is also used in various RCN races. Falk Guddat, who already has RCN experience, and newcomer Markus Nölken are set as drivers. The latter will do his first laps in the BMW during the official NLS set-up runs.
Several races with the BMW M240i Racing and the BMW 318ti Cup at the DMV Racing Days are also on the program for this year. The BMW M240i Racing is used in the NES 500 endurance series and the BMW Challenge sprint series. Lucas Lange and Sascha Lott will share the BMW with 360 hp. Guest starts by Steffen Henssler and Markus Nölken are also planned in this season. An interesting starting field and plenty of driving time on numerous GP tracks in Germany and the Benelux countries promise exciting racing weekends for fans and drivers!
With over 50 starters, the DMV BMW 318ti Cup is a one-make cup that guarantees thrilling motorsport this season with a new record-breaking field. Over the winter months, the mcchip-dkr team completely rebuilt a BMW 318ti series car according to the cup regulations. At the opening race, the BMW E36 will celebrate its race premiere. Depending on the event, Eric Schlegel will share the cockpit with Lucas Lange and Sascha Lott during the one-hour races.
The DMV Racing Days season opener will take place this weekend, from March 5th to 6th at the Hockenheimring. The team is looking forward to new challenges in the NES 500, BMW Challenge and the BMW 318ti Cup!
The team will follow the racing events with a camera and present the videos on the mcchip-dkr YouTube-Channel a few days later.
