No surprises as VLN resumes for Rd 2

Thursday, April 05, 2018

Just about 180 cars reassemble at the Nordschleife this weekend for the second round of the 2018 VLN season for another four hour enduro around the toughest race track in the world.

With other world and european series all holding some significant events this weekend, that has seen a drop in both the overall number of entries as well as whom has entered! For example, we see no aspiring Nordschleife GT3 runners collecting another one of their required VLN race signatures aboard a lower specification car like in time for the 24hour event in May like we did last time out but we do see the return of the Vantage GT8 and the Avia Racing GT4 Vantage.

Looking at the driver line ups, both cars list a revised line up compared with two weeks ago when the GT8 finished third on the SP8 podium whilst the #188 Avia car failed to finish.

Again as an AMR Performance Centre customer entry, the #134 GT8 features the return of Heinz Jurgen Kroner who will be reunited this time out with Kiwi Tony Richards and American David Thilenius who previous all shared a Vantage S together last year. The Avia car meanwhile only lists just two drivers in Wolfgang Weber and Thomas Krebs.

The race begins a noon (local) and is streamed live via the series webpage.
