Class victory and top result at the 6h race

Both Zimmermann Porsches finish at the fifth NLS race

At the ROWE 6 Hours ADAC Ruhr Cup Race, the fifth of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS), a good 120 cars took to the grid. The field also included the two Zimmermann Porsches fielded by Mathol Racing, both of which crossed the finish line after the 6h distance and posted pleasing results.

The Zimmermann Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, which competes in the "Porsche Endurance Trophy Nürburgring", was driven by Arne Hoffmeister, Hendrik Still and Austrian Harri Prozcyk. After finishing 5th in practice, the trio drove in the leading group from the start. Towards the end of the race, a fascinating wheel-to-wheel battle developed for the last podium position, which the Mathol team only just lost. With 4th place, the Zimmermann Porsche retained its good starting position in the Porsche one-make cup.

In the VT3 class, the Zimmermann Porsche 718 Cayman S was driven by Erik Braun, GT Masters driver Jannes Fittje and DTM driver Mikael Grenier (Canada). The trio took another class win after a flawless drive. The team was not able to intervene in the battle for the classification win of the production-based cars as it had to complete a three-minute longer pit stop. On the track, the Mathol trio was 2.5 minutes faster than the winners of the V5 class.

Team boss Matthias Holle: "Both Zimmermann Porsches saw the chequered flag. The VT3 Cayman regularly takes class victories, but the unfair regulations prevent us from competing for the classification group victory as well. The Zimmermann Porsche in the Cup2 class just missed out on a podium finish after a great battle in the final. Once again, a performance we can be proud of."
