Day 1 of WEC Test at Nurburgring

Monday, July 27, 2015

In preparation for the fourth round of the 2015 World Endurance Championship some twenty cars from across the LMP and GTE fields have converged on the Nurburgring circuit for a two day test.

Aston Martin Racing has sent a two car - eight driver line up for the test with the #95 Young Driver GTE Pro car running alongside the #98 GTE Am car. Nikki Thiim, Christoffer Nygaard, Marco Sorensen, Fernando Rees and Richie Stanaway will run the the Pro car whilst Paul Dalla-Lana, Mathias Lauda and Jonny Adam will run in the Am car.

As today featured a closed to the public and media paddock little information is known other than what can be sourced from social media. Day two tomorrow should see the media being allowed into the paddock along with public access beyond that of the main pit straight stand.

Marco Sorensen posted a nice little video clip from the test on Instagram today showing the 'challenging' conditions of the track here. Another video clip available on Youtube showed the #98 car being returned to the garage (undamaged) upon a flat bed so all did not run to order.

Hopefully more information and pictures shall become available tomorrow.
