Ready for the "Double Header" of the Nürburgring long-distance series
For the first time in the history of the Nürburgring long-distance series (formerly: VLN), two long-distance races over a distance of four hours each will be on the program on a weekend. The Frikadelli Racing Team will tackle the double event with all vehicles. In addition to the pilots who have already reached into the steering wheel at the start of the season, Felipe Fernandez Laser will be strengthening the driver's squad.
"After we started the new season well with the victory in the Pro-Am class and the podium place in the Cup3 class, we want to get more success on the "Double Header". To be able to compete in two long-distance races over four hours each in one weekend is a welcome hardship and will certainly take us enormously forward in terms of the setupwork of our vehicles," says team leader Klaus Abbelen.
Lance David Arnold, Alex Müller and Klaus Abbelen will share the cockpit with the starting number 30. After the trio of drivers travelled together with the version 991.2 of the Porsche 911 GT3 R on the Nürburgring Nordschleife for the first time at the season opener, the focus will be on gathering further important experience and repeating the victory in the Pro-Am category of GT3 vehicles.
On the sister vehicle with the starting number 31, the two Porsche factory drivers Kévin Estre and Michael Christensen alternate together with Felipe Fernandez Laser. After the technical problems at the start of the season, the first top ranking is targeted in the 2020 season.
The #962 Porsche Cayman GT4 will started in a proven constellation. Hendrik von Danwitz and "Jules" want to build on their successful premiere with the new vehicle model and ride again on the podium in the Cup3 class.
