Our second race meeting of the year in the VLN championship in Germany at the Nurburgring was in the VLN7 6 hour race on the 3rd of September.
James was once again behind the wheel of an Opel Astra OPC Cup car for WS-Racing alongside co-drivers Peter Ludwig (USA), and Philip Schauerte (Germany). This time James drove a double stint in the race which equated to 18 racing laps of the Nordschleife, a mammoth task in ambient temperatures that ran up to the late 20’s, Perfect conditions for racing though.
The guys qualified 4th on the grid in their class and lined up on the grid ready for the next 6 hours of hard racing.
All the drivers drove hard and fast and managed to finish 3rd in the Opel Cup class and 60th overall which out of 163 cars that started the race was a massive achievement.
Needless to say we will be back for more racing at the Nurburgring next year.
