"A successful start to the season in the Nürburgring Langstrecken-Serie," comments Matthias Holle enthusiastically, boss of the Mathol Racing Team, which is again running the Zimmermann-Porsche this year. "After the long break due to the Covid 19 pandemic the team immediately showed an optimal performance again. In addition, we have to say thanks to the series organizers who, despite the high hygiene requirements, managed to realize a great event".
Contrary to the weather forecast, there was hardly any rain in the Eifel area, at times even the sun came out. In any case, the track remained dry during the 4-hours race. The Zimmermann-Porsche 718 Cayman S started in class VT3 with the regular drivers Wolfgang Weber and Alex Fielenbach. With a lap time of 9.18,726 minutes, the duo secured the best training time in the class.
In the race the Zimmermann-Cayman immediately took the lead and could afford to do some more tests in the course of the race. In the end, the Zimmermann-Porsche crossed the finish line superiorly as the class winner. In the overall classification this meant 51st place. The team only narrowly missed the success in the group classification of the near-series vehicles, because the winner of the class V5 had a significantly shorter obligatory pit stop. Team manager Matthias Holle: "We were able to gain important insights with the Cayman, which this year not only starts with Zimmermann brake discs but also with newly developed pads from our sponsor Zimmermann. It's nice when there's a class success as a reward."
