In the eighth round of the VLN endurance championship Nürburgring, the 51st ADAC Barbarossa Prize, both Zimmermann-Porsche were able to cross the finish line within the first cars. The two Zimmermann-Porsche Cayman showed a strong performance in the eighth VLN race. The cars used by Mathol Racing won the standings in the near-series vehicles and another podium place. Team principal Mattias Holle: "A great day for the team, finally we have been rewarded with our efforts.”

 This time there were favorable weather conditions in the Eifel. During the morning training, the track was wet at first, but in the end, there were almost ideal conditions. The Zimmermann-Porsche Cayman S in the V6 class was piloted by Wolfgang Weber/Alex Fielenbach/ Marcos Adolfo Vazquez. In training, the trio placed the Zimmermann-Cayman in second position in the class. In the race, the trio soon took the lead and celebrated a superior success. In addition, the Zimmermann team achieved the fastest lap of the race and won the group. Team leader Holle: "A great success after a flawless ride."

The new Zimmermann-Porsche Cayman from the class VT3 completed its second race. Behind the wheel, an international trio alternated. In addition to Sebastian Schäfer (Switzerland), WTCR driver Mehdi Bennani (Morocco) and Formula 2 driver Daria Boccolacci (France) also drove. In the race, the new Cayman impressed with its reliability and fast lap times. In the end, the team got rewarded with a second place within the class. Team leader Holle: "Because the new car was in focus of another test, we put two fast pilots in the car who wanted their permit for the Nordschleife. It worked well."
