VLN Racing News Update

Race One cancelled - Test-und Einstellfahrten rescheduled

With the snow still prominently featured on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, the VLN organisation had to cancel the first round of the ten round season on Wedesday. This took away another for the teams to fine tune their machinery for this years Nürburgring 24 Hours, and with testday a rarity this year some teams were faced with a substantial disadvantage, keep in mind the next VLN round is scheduled for April 13th. On that weekend also the FIA WEC and Blancpain Endurance Series are running at Silverstone and Monza respectively.

This kept in mind, the VLN and the Nürburgring worked it out to get the VLN Test- und Einstellfahrten rescheduled for April 5th to the 6th. On Friday the teams will be confined to the GP circuit and on Saturday they’ll be let loose on the Nordschleife. This move was prominently supported by some of the teams that aren’t able to race on April 13th. Together with the next VLN race on April 27th, all teams will have a chance to do two VLN events before the 24 hours.

The VLN is still trying to find an alternative solution for the canceled ADAC Westfalenfahrt, that was scheduled for this Saturday, but a replacement date will definitely be not before the Nürburgring 24 hours. Teams that also need additional running on the Nordschleife also could enter the RCN, Rundstrecken Challenge Nürburgring-Nordschleife, which will held events on April 20th and May 4th plus on the Friday of the 24 hours.
