Good forecasts for the delayed NES season opener, livestreaming

14.04.2021: After snowfall made the season opener of the Nürburgring Endurance Series impossible three weeks ago, the forecasts - not only in terms of weather - for the NIMEX 45th DMV 4h Race are positive for everyone involved. Now it's finally getting down to busine

After snowfall made the season opener of the Nürburgring Endurance Series impossible three weeks ago, the forecasts - not only in terms of weather - for the NIMEX 45th DMV 4h Race are positive for everyone involved. Now it's finally getting down to business, drivers and teams of 147 cars are eager for the first ride through the Green Hell.

Most of the cars are in the GT3 class SP9. 20 cars from Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche fight for the day's victory. New on the grid compared to the opening race are Michele Beretta and Nicki Thiim, who drive a second Audi R8 LMS for Phoenix Racing.

Also fielded by the team from Meuspath in 2021: The Wochenspiegel Ferrari. Georg Weiss, Daniel Keilwitz and Jochen Krumbach celebrate their comeback in the unique Nordschleife championship under the application 'WTM powered by Phoenix '.

Also new in the GT3 class of the NLS is CP Racing, the team around the US American Charles Putman and Joe Foster. In the absence of his established HRT team, Nordschleife specialist Adam Christodoulou will contest a guest start for the debutants.

Fast ladies enrich the field of participants in the Nürburgring Endurance Series, with Team GITI Tire Motorsport by WS Racing leading the way. Carrie Schreiner and Célia Martin will start under the motto 'Girls Only' in the Audi R8 LMS GT4.

Team AVIA Sorg Rennsport will also be fielding an all-women crew. Pippa Mann, a driver with an Indycar background, and Christina Nielsen will take the wheel of the BMW 330i in the VT2 class. Simona De Silvestro drives a Porsche Cayman GT4 for Four Motors in the alternative fuel class.

In the Hyundai i30N from ROJA Motorsport by ASL Lichtblau, Jessica Sofia Elisabet Bäckman is in the mix and Fabienne Wohlwend starts for Adrenalin Motorsport Team Alzner Automotive in VT2. Sophia Gachot is competing for rent2drive-FAMILIA-racing in a production-based Porsche Cayman in V5.

Two teams with female participation will duel in SP3T. Michelle Halder will compete with her Seat Cupra against Jasmin Preisig in the VW Golf GTi TCR of Max Kruse Racing, among others. Katharina Lippka ventures the step up from the RCN performance test to real racing at the NLS.

The banker from Neuss will start with a BMW 325i in the SP4 class. The only woman in SP9 is Janine Shoffner. She shares the cockpit of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 from GetSpeed Performance with Moritz Kranz and is aiming for class victory in the Am classification of the premier class.

Matthias Malmedie celebrates his comeback in the Green Hell. The Cologne-based presenter already raced on the Nordschleife in the early years of the millennium. Since 2007 he has presented the format 'GRIP - Das Motormagazin' on RTL II, which he played a major role in developing. He will tackle the race together with Markus Flasch and Jörg Weidinger in the BMW M2 CS Racing of the Adrenalin Motorsport Team Alzner Automotive.

Strongly contested Cup classes

19 cars can be found in the provisional list of participants in Cup3. Constant dripping wears away the stone - in the sixth year of the Cayman GT4 Trophy by Manthey-Racing and in keeping with the 25th anniversary of the racing team from Meuspath, the class is celebrating a record number of entrants.

The two production car classes VT2 (18 cars) and V4 (16 cars) are also well represented. With twelve M2 CS Racing cars, the BMW Cup of the same name is also well represented in its debut year. And seven vehicles in the CupX, KTM X-Bow Cup powered by Michelin, are also impressive.



Hygiene concept further refined

Race two of the Nürburgring Endurance Series will also take place under special conditions due to the pandemic. Spectators are not allowed on the race track and only a limited number of people per team have access to the paddock. All team members entering the paddock have to prove a negative Corona test.

There is a general obligation to wear masks on the entire event site and people are required to observe distance and hygiene rules. The course of the event has already been organised in advance to minimise contacts.

For the NIMEX 45th DMV 4h Race, for example, the procedure for submitting Corona test results and issuing tickets to drivers and team members will be completely digitalised and implemented without contact.

The NIMEX 45th DMV 4h-Race will start punctually at 12 noon on Saturday over the distance of four hours. Prior to this, the positions on the starting grid will be determined in qualifying from 08:30 to 10:00.

The livestream on, YouTube and Facebook will show the race action from the Green Hell from 8:30 a.m. - by the way, in 2021 at all races with spectacular live pictures from the ROWE-Heli.
