But also the other two vehicles convinced. Niklas Kry, Brilon (D) and Ralf Lammering, Parsberg (D) drove the Audi R8 LMS GT4 confidently to P4 class.
Kry convinced the team with a superior performance, fast lap times and excellent team communication.
"I could have cracked the 9-minute mark, but it was a lot of traffic all the time. Thanks to my team, who did a great job " Niklas Kry after the race.
Ralf Lammering drove this weekend on two vehicles. In addition to the Audi he placed the Golf VI GTI CUP with Florian Böhnisch, Bochum (D) and Ulrich Schmidt, Kamen (D)on the 5th place in the class SP3T.
The Golf VI GTI Cup, which completed its last race, was pushed by Böhnisch. Böhnisch announced VLN8 that he can crack the 9: 30min mark and he realized it. With 9: 25min he set a car record and demonstrated the potential of the "old" Golf VI.
Böhnisch after the race: "Everything was just right. The car was perfectly prepared. Thanks to my colleagues for the great closing of the season. "
For the whole team that race was balm for the soul. Team Manager Fritz Rabensteiner sums it up:
"We basically had to rebuild the Audi R8 LMS GT4 three times that year. That made us crazy. The fact that we are now driving home with a class victory, a car record and no crashes was enormously important for the whole team.
At this point I would like to send special thanks to chief mechanic Sven Langenfeld, who was subjected to enormous stress this year. With VLN, RCN, 24h race, Trackdays and P9 Challenge we challenged Sven enormously and he always got it!”.
