Land-Motorsport celebrated the 25th NLS victory

29.08.2020: Suspense right up to the end - this is how the ROWE 6h ADAC Ruhr Cup race can be described precisely in just a few words. It was not until the last lap that the decision was made at the season highlight of the Nürburgring Endurance Series.

Suspense right up to the end - this is how the ROWE 6h ADAC Ruhr Cup race can be described precisely in just a few words. It was not until the last lap that the decision was made at the season highlight of the Nürburgring Endurance Series.



In the end Mattia Drudi, Christopher Mies and Kelvin Van der Linde in the Audi R8 LMS GT3 celebrated the 25th NLS victory for Land-Motorsport. At the finish, the lead over brand colleagues Mirko Bortolotti, Robin Frijns, Christopher Haase and Markus Winkelhock from Car Collection was just 3.988 seconds after 41 laps.


Luca Ludwig and Björn Grossmann in the Ferrari 488 GT3 of Octane 126 with a daring pit strategy trembled to third place.



The Octane 126 Ferrari had a total of 14 leading laps, but in the final phase the Swiss team had to tremble and fear. "From the third lap of my stint on, fuel saving was the order of the day. We chose a bold strategy. In the end the race literally got longer and longer. About one minute before the time expired, I was over the start-finish line after eight laps. After that I really had to let it roll," says 31-year-old Ludwig.


"On the last lap I couldn't push any more and had to let both Audi cars go. But in the end I prefer third place to having to park on the side of the track without fuel.



The two Audi teams were surprised by the Ferrari without a fight. "To get past Luca was somehow too easy", said Mies "Nevertheless I am happy about the victory. The last laps were a lot of fun to race over the Nordschleife in pairs with Mirko". Drudi added: "I am contesting my first Nordschleife season - so a victory is of course fantastic.


In qualifying, Van der Linde secured pole position for the team with a time of 7:56.253 minutes - the fastest practice lap of the season.



The runners-up were also satisfied with the result. The quartet was also able to book the fastest race lap (7:57.777 minutes). "We certainly didn't unpack the crowbar at the end, because our goal was to get both cars safely to the finish," said Winkelhock. "We are satisfied with the result. We have the right pace for the 24h race - we want to be at the top of the podium in the end".

 

16 changes in the lead made for excitement



The lead changed 16 times during the race. In addition to the three first-placed teams, the Mercedes-AMG Team HRT also collected leading kilometres, as did the Frikadelli Racing Team (Porsche 911 GT3 R), GetSpeed Performance (Mercedes-AMG GT3), Konrad Motorsport (Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo), Falken Motorsports (Porsche 911 GT3 R) and Manthey-Racing (Porsche 911 GT3 R).



In fourth place overall was the Mercedes-AMG Team GetSpeed with Raffaele Marciello, Maximilian Götz, Maximilian Buhk and Fabian Schiller. The BMW M6 GT3 #99 of ROWE RACING with Philipp Eng, Alexander Sims, Nick Catsburg and Nick Yelloly finished the "home race" in fifth place.



The fastest Pro-Am car was driven by Klaus Abbelen, Lance David Arnold and Alex Müller for Frikadelli Racing (Porsche 911 GT3 R). The fastest SP9 Am team was Hella Pagid - racing one with Christian Kohlhaas, Nikolaj Rogivue and Mike Jäger in the Ferrari 488 GT3.



The two debutants in the Nürburgring Endurance Series - FFF Racing Group (Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo) and 10Q Racing Team (Mercedes-AMG GT3) - took positions 17 and 23. The Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus prototype, the 004c, completed only 33 laps in the 6h race and was ranked 98th in the end.



The victory in the Cup 5 class (BMW M240 i Racing) went to Heiko Eichenberg and Moritz Oberheim from the AVIA Sorg Rennsport team. The Cup X (KTM X-BOW Cup powered by MICHELIN) went to Georg Griesemann, Reinhard Kofler and Yves Volte.





Rink, Brink and Leisen defend their lead




The leaders  so far still have a clean slate. Christopher Rink, Danny Brink and Philipp Leisen in the BMW 325i of Pixum CFN Team Adrenalin Motorsport celebrated their fifth V4 class victory in the fifth race.


Thorsten Jung, who finished second in the Mühlner-Porsche in the Cup 3 class (Cayman T4-Trophy by Manthey-Racing), remains in second place. After six hours he, together with Peter Terting and Oskar Sandberg, had to concede defeat to the victorious Team Ravenol Performance with drivers Horst Baumann, Ivan Jacoma and Kai Riemer by 9.857 seconds.



 In the ROWE Speed Trophy the BMW with the starting number #34 from Walkenhorst Motorsport leads the Mercedes-AMG GT3 of the Mercedes-AMG Team GetSpeed Performance. Car Collection takes third place with the Audi R8 LMS #32.



The seventh race of the Nürburgring Endurance Series takes place on 24 October. The 45th DMV Münsterlandpokal leads over the usual distance of four hours.


One week before, it continues virtually in the Digital Nürburgring Endurance Series. A large part of the NLS teams will compete in the 24h race at the Nürburgring (24th to 27th September).



 In the past four years, traditional teams from the Nordschleife championship - Phoenix-Racing, Manthey-Racing, Land-Motorsport and Black Falcon - have left their mark on the Eifel classic.
