VLN complete - now the ADAC N24 Qualifying race for Aston's GT8

Sunday, April 08, 2018

Aston Martin's Vantage GT8 survived another round of the VLN Series yesterday and earned itself another class podium to boot for its efforts.

Heinz Jurgen Kroner was this time accompanied by previous VLN driver acquaintances in Tony Richard and David Thilenius around the infamous Nordschleife circuit to earn themselves third position SP8 class finishing two laps behind the class winning Ferrari in Saturday's four hour race.

Returning the car to the local AMR Performance Centre in one piece at least allows the team simple routine works to prepare the car for its next outing around the circuit for this weekend coming for the ADAC N24 Qualifying race.

Peter Cate returns to the car he won the SP8 class in last year at the N24 alongside co drivers Darren Turner, Nicki Thiim and Markus Lungstrass. He will share the car at the 2018 event with F3 racer and former GT4 Champion Jamie Chadwick and saloon racer and motor journalist Jens Dralle.

For the other Aston Martin runner at the VLN yesterday, it was yet more disappointment as the Avia Racing V8 Vantage GT4 fable dto finish the four hour race for the second time this season when the #188 car completed just 9 of the SP10 winning cars 25 lap total.
