Different than usual, but no less entertaining - the digital annual award ceremony of the Nürburgring Long Distance Series 2020 was a great success. Especially for the fans, as they were able to attend the ceremonial - albeit virtual - trophy handover for the first time.

More than 7,000 spectators switched on the stream live from the "Gläserne Studio" at the Nürburgring on Friday evening during prime time. Here the presenters Patrick Simon and Lukas Gajewski personally welcomed, among others, the master maker Matthias Unger and junior champion Marcel Marchewicz.



However, most of the cup handovers took place via video link. Among the prominent guests who joined in the action were rapper Smudo and professional footballer Max Kruse.



In addition to the overall ranking - in which Christopher Rink, Philipp Leisen and Danny Brink with the BMW 325i of the Pixum CFN Team Adrenalin Motorsport were ahead for the second time after 2018 - pilots were honoured in the following rankings: VLN Production Car Trophy, VLN Junior Trophy, ROWE Speed Trophy by VLN, VLN Class Winner Trophy, NIMEX Team Trophy, BMW M240i Racing Cup, Cayman GT4 Trophy by Manthey-Racing, KTM X-BOW CUP powered by MICHELIN and Digital Nürburgring Endurance Series powered by VCO.



Interesting revelations from the NLS participants



The presenters Patrick Simon and Lukas Gajewski were answered by innumerable drivers via video link and some of them already gave a preview of the year 2021. Carrie Schreiner, for example, revealed that the Girls Only Team will in future compete with the Audi R8 from WS Racing.



Junior champion Marcel Marchewicz plans to drive a GT4 race in 2021. Max Kruse Racing will field the two juniors Marek Schaller and Marius Rauer in the Nürburgring Endurance Series. The three champions also already have plans for the new season and are flirting with a BMW M2 CS.


 

VLN-Orga satisfied and full of anticipation


The two leading heads behind the Nürburgring Endurance Series, Christian Stephani (Managing Director of VLN VV GmbH & Co. KG) and Ralph-Gerald Schlüter (General Representative of VLN e.V. & Co. oHG) looked back on the past season and gave an outlook for 2021: "We can be satisfied with what we have achieved in 2020 together with many partners.


Our thanks go to the Nürburgring, the ILN, the district administration of Ahrweiler, the Institute of Hygiene of the University of Bonn, our participants and the sports control rooms of the track security. When we planned the season, there were many unknowns. We started with a risk that was difficult to calculate. This applies especially to the nine organising clubs.


I would also like to thank them explicitly. Looking back, the year has gone more than well", said Schlüter and Stephani announced a great innovation for the fans: "We will have spectacular pictures from a helicopter for our live stream at all races in 2021. This will allow us to capture the fascination of the Nürburgring Endurance Series and the countless duels around the Nordschleife even better".





BMW M2 CS and KTM X-Bow GTX - two new racers for the Green Hell


The broadcast also focused on two new vehicles that will celebrate their premiere in 2021 in the Nürburgring Long Distance Series: the BMW M2 CS and the KTM X-Bow GTX.


"Together with the VLN, we have fixed the BMW M2 CS Cup for the next three years," said Nico Amende, Sales and Marketing Customer Motorsport BMW M. "The racing car not only incorporates the experience gained from seven years of the M235i and M240i Racing Cup, but also incorporates many components from the BMW M4 GT4."


Michael Teichmann gave an outlook on the use of the new GTX: "The vehicle sets new standards in terms of safety and has 170 hp more power than the GT4-X-Bow. So the gap to the GT3 vehicles is no longer large".



Adrenalin cleared away many trophies



The PIXUM CFN Team Adrenalin Motorsport was the winner of the evening. In addition to the championship, the titles in the VLN Production Car Trophy, the class winner trophies SP10, V5 and VT2 and in the same classes the titles in the NIMEX Team Trophy also went to the team from Heusenstamm.



"The year went super from a sporting point of view," said team boss Matthias Unger. "We took up the challenge in the Corona season and it worked. Of course, we gave a lot of thought at the beginning of the season. In the end it was important for us to be able to race at all. The circumstances were also not as bad as some had initially feared. We approached the matter optimistically - you don't always have to see everything in a negative light. For the third year in a row Adrenalin Motorsport is the champion car.



Unger continues: "Being at the front is not as easy as it may seem. It will certainly not be a walk in the park to defend the 2021 title again. Sometimes it is easier to hunt than to be hunted."




Honour to whom honour is brewed: the champions of DNLS




A premiere was the first honouring of the successful teams of the Digital Nürburgring Long Distance Series powered by VCO. For the simracers of the teams BMW Bank, SimRC and CoRe SimRacing it was not only a great honour to race in front of a large audience in 2020, but also to be honoured for their successes.



"Simracing offers an excellent opportunity to tell a second story alongside real motorsport," said VCO Managing Director Florian Haasper. "We have to thank the fans who have given Simracing a chance. Of course, not everyone likes eSports, but there are thrilling races and in the end it is real emotions that play a role".





A Christmas present for the fans: On 19 December the second DNLS race starts



The waiting period until the 2021 season opener is not that long at all: already in 112 days, the starting lights of the Nürburgring Endurance Series will turn green again and bring the Green Hell out of hibernation at the first race on 27 March 2021.


One week before that, the rehearsal and set-up day (20 March) gets you in the mood for the new season. But that doesn't mean that the fans have to do without thrilling racing action until then. The DNLS presented by Goodyear is already in full swing again. On 19 December, the MAHLE 3h race is already the second race of the winter season 20/21 on the programme.
