Positive approaches, but no success

Zimmermann-Porsche without luck at the Nürburgring

For the second race of the 2022 Nürburgring Langstrecken-Serie (NLS), the 53rd Adenauer ADAC Rundstrecken Trophy, Mathol Racing brought three Zimmermann Porsches to the Eifel. In the end, none of the cars saw the checkered flag, a less than fortunate race day. Mathol team boss Matthias Holle: "There are just weekends when little goes together."

The race of the Zimmermann Porsche 911 GT3 Cup in the new one-make cup "Porsche Endurance Trophy Nürburgring" of Arne Hoffmeister and the Austrian Harri Prozcyk already ended dramatically on the first lap. There was some confusion on the entry to the Hohenrain chicane. A Cup2 class car overtook several side-by-side GT3 cars with 2 wheels on the hard shoulder, kicking up so much dust that abruptly dominated the atmosphere and reduced visibility of a Sahara sandstorm at the end of the Döttinger Höhe. Together with several competitors, starting driver Proczyk reduced the speed for safety reasons. One competitor didn't think this was necessary and catapulted car number 107 out of the race like a billiard ball at well over 200 kph. Team boss Holle: "Even though the competitor's driver came to us and apologized, we cannot understand the race control's failure to act. Overtaking on the grass, poorly paved verges after construction work and inappropriate speed in the absence of visibility are simply not acceptable."

For the Zimmermann Porsche 718 Cayman S from the VT3 class with Argentine Marcos Adolfo Vasquez, Brit Peter Cate and Pole Franz Dwizok, it was already over after the morning qualifying session. After a slip on operating fluid and subsequent impact with the guardrail, repairs on site were not possible for safety reasons. The Porsche Cayman S in the V6 class was also unable to start. Drivers Peter Cate, Franz Dwizok and India's Arjun Maini had put the car on pole position in the class, but gearbox damage ended the race day prematurely.
