4th Run: Excellent performance on the Nürburgring

Zimmermann Porsche Cayman just barely missed class victory

In the 4th run of the Saison the Zimmermann Porsche Cayman S narrowly missed another class victory in the VLN Langstreckenmeisterschaft on the Nürburgring. In the end the Zimmermann Cayman was only 9 seconds slower than the victorious competitor.

154 teams competed at the 50th Adenauer ADAC Rundstrecken-Trophy. The event was characterized by a time delay and shortened to 3.5 hours race distance. After an accident in the first round of the training session, the schedule was quite mixed up, as the extensive repair measures at the track barrier lasted almost two hours. Therefore, the time training was limited to 45 minutes.

It was difficult to find the time for the optimal lap in the short training period. The regular drivers Wolfgang Weber / Alex Fielenbach / Roberto Falcon had no free lap at the end and had to settle for third place.

In the race, the Zimmermann Cayman quickly improved to second place and took over in the meantime even the lead in the class. They finished on the  second place, nine seconds behind the victorious Porsche 991. Head of the team Matthias Holle: "We have finished and were the best Cayman in the class. We drove with 9.12,555 minutes the fastest lap of the class. Unfortunately, we narrowly missed the class win."
