Frikadelli Racing with all cars at the third VLN race
At the third race of the VLN-season on the Nürburgring, the Frikadelli Racing Team will again be represented by three cars. Besides the new #31 Porsche 911 GT3 R, the #30 Porsche 911 GT3 R could be repaired after the crash two weeks ago. The #962 Porsche Cayman GT4 will complete the Frikadelli Racing squad in the penultimate race before the 24 hour race.
“Slowly but surely were coming into the hot phase of the season as the 24 hour race is approaching. So the third VLN race is extremely important to prepare. Especially as the weather wasn’t good at the first two race”, team manager Klaus Abbelen explains.
Especially the new #31 Porsche 911 GT3 R should run in a four-hour efficiency test to collect more data. The car achieved a good fifth place in the first race of the season but due to the fog the race was shortened to 2:45 hours. Porsche young professional driver Mathieu Jaminet, who already drove the car in VLN 1, will share the cockpit with the Porsche worksdrivers Sven Müller and Domain Dumas. While Müller recently drove for Frikadelli during the VLN testing day, Dumas is new to the team. The Frenchman already won the 24 hours of Nürburgring four times and was also successful in the 24 hour races at Le Mans and Spa.
The #30 sister-car will be driven by Klaus Abbelen, Alex Müller and Felipe Fernandez Laser this time. After the accident in the last VLN race, the team could repair the car completely.
“The damage in the front of the car looked worse than it really was in the beginning. Nevertheless I have to compliment my team on repairing the car so fast. Alex, Felipe and I now want to thank the team with a good result in VLN 3”, says Abbelen.
As every time the #962 Porsche Cayman GT4 will be driven by Hendrik von Danwitz and “Jules". The goal of both drivers is to finish as the best 981- Cayman in the Cup-3 class.
The third VLN race will begin at Saturday the 27th of April at 12 o'clock. In front of that the qualifing takes place from 8:30 to 10:00 o'clock.
