Frikadelli Racing with valuable test kilometers at the NLS season finale


David Pittard and Klaus Abbelen completed another successful test program with "Bella 2.0" at the season finale of the Nürburgring Endurance Series with a view to the next season. For the team from Barweiler, this marks the end of a fantastic year on the Nordschleife, which culminated in overall victory at the Nürburgring 24 Hours and was peppered with another great success with the AM championship title in the Porsche Endurance Trophy Nürburgring.

"We really have had a fantastic season on the Nordschleife, especially with the big triumph in the 24h race at the Nürburgring. We achieved something historic in our first Ferrari year and fulfilled a long-awaited dream. But the NLS races with our Porsche 992 GT3 Cup were also extremely successful and ultimately led to us winning the championship title. Many thanks at this point to the entire team and our drivers for their great work and to our partners and fans for their fantastic support," said Team Principal Klaus Abbelen.

At the NLS season finale, radiator damage after qualifying meant that the race result took a back seat for David Pittard and Klaus Abbelen in the #30 Ferrari 296 GT3. Starting from the pits, they used the four-hour distance purely as a test run with a view to the coming season. "Once again, we collected a lot of data and are therefore satisfied with the weekend.We will analyze the interim damage to the radiator in more detail together with Ferrari afterwards," Abbelen continues.

Next stop: guest start in the Prototype Cup Germany

However, the 2023 motorsport season is not yet completely over for Frikadelli Racing.Next weekend, Klaus Abbelen and Felipe Laser will make a guest start in the Prototype Cup Germany at the Nürburgring with the Ligier JS P320.Frikadelli Racing already took part in the event last year.

"At the time of our appearance last year, the Prototype Cup Germany was still relatively new, so I'm very excited to see how the series has developed since then and I'm already looking forward to the weekend," says Abbelen.

The series kicks off with two free practice sessions on Friday, before qualifying (15 minutes) and a race (55 minutes + 1 lap) take place on Saturday and Sunday.
