MAHLE RACING TEAM leads BMW to quadruple triumph in DNLS presented by Goodyear

Hot start in cold outside temperatures in the Digital Nürburgring Endurance Series presented by Goodyear: The first winners of the winter season 20/21 are Sami-Matti Trogen and Alex Arana. The duo from the MAHLE RACING TEAM crossed the finish line at the Nürburgring with a lead of 6.29 seconds ahead of the second-placed Laurin Heinrich and Rainer Talvar.



The podium at the H&R 3h race was completed by Jesse Krohn and Dominik Staib for Williams Esports. Last year's champions Bruno Spengler, Nils Koch and Kay Kaschube completed the virtual BMW dominance in fourth place. The fastest Mercedes-AMG GT3 was driven by Philip Ellis, Jack Sedgwick and Aleksi Elomaa for the MANN-FILTER Team HTP-WINWARD in fifth place.



"That was a great start into the new season. Our BMW Z4 GT3 worked very well," said rally cross driver Trogen, who also completed his first race kilometres in the real Nürburgring endurance series this year. The MAHLE RACING TEAM changed from Audi to BMW for the new season.



"This change will pay off", said Alex Arana. "The two GT3-bolides can be driven completely different. In the simulation iRacing the BMW is simply the right car to be in the DNLS in the fight for the championship. This is our goal, that's why we switched."



Simracing star Laurin Heinrich, who drove his first season in the real Porsche Carrera Cup in 2020, had good chances for victory together with Rainer Talvar until a few laps before the end. But then he was involved in a collision in the Aremberg curve while laping over and could not start a final attack with his damaged Z4.



"The consequences of the crash cost us a lot of top speed above all. That was around 5 km/h, which is of course enormously noticeable on the long Döttinger Höhe", he says. "That's why I'm very satisfied to have finished second".

Williams Esports also switched from Audi to BMW. "That was a very interesting race for me," said Staib. "It took a lot of preparation to get us ready for this race. We got the maximum out of it. In the end we were about two seconds faster per lap than with the Audi. A huge compliment especially to Jesse, who joined our team only two days ago and delivered a flawless job".




Ascher Racing once again faultless



Ascher Racing dominated the Cup 2 class (Porsche 911 GT3 Cup) and took a commanding victory. "That was a lot of fun again," said Martin Ascher, who contested the race together with Marcus Jirak. "Our qualifying ran perfectly and we secured pole position in our class. However, I was unable to break away in the starting phase.


Over the distance it worked out better because we stayed clear of errors. Especially at the beginning of the race Keanu Buschmann and Till Norwig from Buttler-Pal Motorsport were able to keep up with the speed of the later winners, but in the end they had to settle for second place.



Third place went to Lucas Lippert and Thomas Asmussen from H2 Performance SRT.





Surprise winner in the SP10



In the GT4 class SP10, Team RSO celebrated a surprise victory. Nils Lorenz and Nils Carstensen won with their Porsche Cayman 718 GT4 against SimRC (BMW M4 GT4) and CoRe SimRacing (Porsche Cayman 718 GT4). "We did not necessarily expect to be at the top today and to win with such a big lead", Carstensen confessed.



"In the starting phase I looked at what SimRC and CoRe were doing in front of me and just waited for a mistake to happen. And in the end it came. Not only did I pass them both, but I was also able to pull away. A great start to the season." SimRC pilot Marcel Fassbender explains the collision of the two leaders: "It was a tough fight.



With the BMW we have disadvantages in the corners compared to the Porsche, but with strong torque and the good top speed we are fast out of the corners and on the straights. In the corners CoRe always came very close and I made myself wide, then there was a touch."



SimRC triumphs with opening victory for the fourth time in a row

 
They become the series winners in the SP3T class: Jürgen Frank and Felix Luding from SimRC picked up where they left off about four weeks ago in the final race of the DNLS debut season and celebrated their fourth consecutive victory. "Our Audi RS 3 LMS worked great again today," said Frank.


"In the end, the race was not quite as tight as in the previous races. But in the first half we had a nice duel with Team Heusinkveld. But they were involved in a collision, so that we were able to gain an advantage".



Unlucky guys, Marcel Tie, Patrick Kubinji and Michael Schoettler, had another accident in the last corner. Steen Ledger pushed Kubinji off the track in the Hohenrain chicane and received a 5-second penalty from race control for this avoidable collision. This left the Heusinkveld trio at least in second place ahead of Ledger and Lard Bol.



The second round of the Digital Nürburgring Endurance Series presented by Goodyear will take place on December 19. On the fourth weekend in Advent, the MAHLE 3h race will conclude the motor sports year 2020 shortly before Christmas, but the DNLS winter season will by no means be over.



Before the season opener of the real Nordschleife Championship on 27.03.2021, three more digital races are on the programme from January to March.
