The season of the Nürburgring Langstrecken-Serie (NLS) is slowly picking up speed despite the still rampant Covid 19 pandemic. For the first time in the history of endurance racing at the Nürburgring, a double event with two 4-hour races will take place next weekend.
Zimmermann and Mathol Racing will bring two Zimmermann-Porsche to the Eifel area for rounds two and three of the NLS. At the 60th ADAC Reinoldus Langstreckenrenen (Saturday, 11 July), the Zimmermann-Porsche 718 Cayman S will drive in class VT3 (start number 474) and the Zimmermann-Porsche Cayman S (start number 435) in class V6.
In the cockpit of the 474 the regular pilots Wolfgang Weber and Alex Fielenbach take turns. This time two more drivers will join them. The internationally experienced GT3 driver Jules Gounon (France) must renew his Nordschleife permit. The successful young driver Mike Beckhusen (Berlin) also wants to obtain the permit and improve his track knowledge. In addition, the two pilots will also drive the Porsche with starting number 435.
In the 52nd ADAC Barbarossa Prize (Sunday, 12 July), only the Zimmermann Porsche 718 Cayman S will compete in the VT3 class. In addition to Weber and Fielenbach, Gounon and Beckhusen will again be competing.
Team boss Matthias Holle: "We want to celebrate the next class wins in the VT3 class after the successful season opener. I also expect a strong result from the proven Zimmermann Porsche in the V6 class".
