Short but successful season

The Zimmermann-Porsche Cayman achieved a total of nine class victories at the Nürburgring in 2020

The 2020 motor sports season at the Nürburgring was dominated by the Covid 19 pandemic. Initially, the season started with a considerable delay. Then the motor sports year in the Eifel region started in summer with a considerably reduced and changed schedule as well as a new hygiene concept for those involved. In the end, even a few spectators were allowed on the grandstands before the season was prematurely terminated due to the again increasing infection figures. As a result, the planned end of the season of the Nürburgring Langstrecken-Serie (NLS, November 7 and 8) did not take place.

Nevertheless, the short season was quite successful for the two Zimmermann-Porsche Cayman, which were again used by Mathol Racing. The Porsche Cayman S was used in the V6 class and the Porsche 718 Caymann S in the VT3 class. At the ADAC Total 24h race, which was postponed to a date at the end of September, Matthias Holle's team won two classes with the two Zimmermann Cayman in the VT3 and V6.

In the NLS, formerly VLN, a total of five events were held. For Mathol Racing and Zimmermann there were a total of six class victories - 5 in the VT3 and 1 in the V6 - and two classification group victories in the near-series vehicles.

In addition, the two Zimmermann-Porsche Cayman each competed once in the Nürburgring Rundstrecken-Challenge (RCN). There was another class victory at the start.

Team boss Matthias Holle: "A memorable season. We can be very satisfied with the performance and the performance of the Zimmermann-Porsche. Hopefully next year we will experience better conditions and a good endurance season at the Nürburgring again".
