Snow at the Nürburgring- Race stopped

The second race of the VLN Endurance Championship 2019 – the 44th DMV 4h Race – will go down in history. During the second lap, the originally planned four-hour race was prematurely stopped due to the onset of snowfall and was not restarted.

The BMW M6 GT3’s excellent performance thus went un-rewarded at temperatures around freezing point. During qualifying, Peter Dumbreck and Jens Klingmann put enormous pressure on their competitors, their 8:01.461 lap time securing them a first-row starting position.

In the formation lap, starting driver Klingmann skilfully warmed up his Falken tyres, fighting his way to first place in the first curve thanks to outstanding brake performance. But then, the race organisers decided to cancel the race during the second lap for safety reasons.

The third race of the VLN Endurance Championship – the 61st ADAC ACAS H&R-Cup – will be held on 27 April 2019. Then, besides the BMW, the Falken Porsche 911 GT3 R will start again.
