Mercedes-AMG E-Sports Team HRT is DNLS Champion in SP9 after today finale

07.03.2022: Finale in the Digital Nürburgring Endurance Series presented by Goodyear: literally at the last meters the championship in SP9 was decided between Mercedes-AMG E-Sports Team HRT and Mahle Racing Team.

Finale in the Digital Nürburgring Endurance Series presented by Goodyear: literally at the last meters the championship in SP9 was decided between Mercedes-AMG E-Sports Team HRT and Mahle Racing Team.

While Team BMW Bank in the BMW M4 GT3 with Bruno Spengler and Kay Kaschube drove towards their first victory of the season in the LEGO Technic 3h race without any danger, the Hungarian Norbi Kiss, Florian Denzler and Danny Giusa were crowned champions after a nerve-wracking final phase.

"I am very happy, the last laps were very exciting. We had a very good qualifying, unfortunately we then lost some time at the start," said new champion Kiss. Denzler added: "When you're watching, it's always a bit more stressful than when you're driving yourself. Danny drove the thing home at the end and pushed incredibly." Giusa was particularly in the spotlight, "I don't want to say much about the finish and the decision, it is what it is. I'm very proud, last season we had barely gotten a cut."

Phil Denes in the Mahle Racing Team's Porsche 911 GT3 R launched an impressive chase to catch up with Giusa in the Mercedes-AMG GT3 in the final laps. He came ever closer to his rival in the title fight. Shortly before the end of the three-hour race, a slight contact occurred on the Grand Prix circuit. The US boy pushed past Giusa. The title fight seemed to be decided in favor of Mahle. Race control ordered a place swap because the Mahle team had already been warned earlier. When Denis ignored this, the result was corrected retrospectively.

The Mercedes-AMG E-Sports Team HRT became overall winner in the third DNLS season with 43 points ahead of the Mahle Racing Team (39). Team BMW Bank (36) moved up to third overall thanks to the day's success. The pole setters from Coanda Simsport SP9 with Laurin Heinrich and Makk Backum in the Porsche 911 GT3 R were ultimately disqualified for failing to show up for a penalty.

"The race was very awesome and a lot happened. Kay did a sensational middle stint without any mistakes. We're really happy to have won the last race, we had a lot of bad luck with accidents during the season," said race winner Bruno Spengler.

In Cup2, a third place would have been enough for David Williams and Zachery Campbell from Coanda Simsport to win overall on Sunday. But the Englishman and the US-American played it safe and they also won the final race. They thus triumphed in four of the five races.

With the maximum points score of 60, they thus prevailed in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup ahead of Ascher Racing with Marcus Jirak and Martin Ascher (45) and Peter Bonk Performance (33). "We are very satisfied. We did our job brilliantly to secure the overall title. We won four races in a row, we couldn't have done much better," said Williams.

In the SP10 class, the decision for the championship title had already been made earlier in favor of CoRe Simracing SP10. But Austrian Pascal Stix and Swede Carl E Jansson also held their own with the fourth win of the season in the Porsche Cayman GT4, which made 60 points. Team RSO 397 with Nils Carstensen and Nils Lorenz took second place for the third time and ended up with 48 points overall.

In SP3T, the champion, Team Heusinkveld 404 with Marcel Tie, Fabian Siegmann and Patrick Kubinji had to give way to the toughest competitor in the Audi RS3 LMS 53, Team CoRe SimRacing SP3T, in the final race. Nevertheless, Frenchman Corentin Guinez and Briton Kieran Harrison finished with only 52 points in the final standings, four points short of the title. Marshmallow Racing with Moritz Weinrich and Dennis Ronsdorf finished third with 34 points.

In the "Deutsche Payment DNLS-Championship" there were two teams with equal points after the season finale. Coanda Simsport Cup2 and Team Heusinkveld 404 ultimately had 26 points. Due to the better individual results, the title went to Coanda Simsport Cup2. They were followed by CoRe SimRacing SP10 (23) and team RSO397 (22).

In this special classification it was worth to be fast and to complete the race without any special incidents. Points were awarded across all classes for the top 3 in the race, pole position, fastest race lap and the lowest iRacing incident.


In the real-sim classification, the most successful teams from the three smaller classes with a driver from real motorsport are rewarded with bonuses. Peter Bonk Per4mance came first with 23 points, ahead of Team Deutsche Payment eSports DNLS #310 (15) and Walkenhorst Motorsport GT4 (13).

In just under three weeks, it's back to the real world. The 67th ADAC Westfalenfahrt will open the 2022 season of the Nürburgring Endurance Series on March 26.
