Four Mercedes-AMG GT3s and one Mercedes-AMG GT4 competed in the six-hour race of the Nürburgring Endurance Series last weekend.




Philip Ellis (SUI) in the #11 Schnitzelalm Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 reacted smartly to the lights going out and pulled off an inch-perfect manoeuvre along the pit wall to take the lead before the first corner.



The Mercedes-AMG driver, who was alternating in the cockpit with Marek Böckmann (GER), Miklas Born (SUI) and Marcel Marchewicz (GER), then went on to defend first place in his stint and handed the car over to Miklas Born.



However, a patch of spilled lubricant at Adenauer Forst was the undoing of all three front-runners who were obliged to retire one after the other at the two-hour mark. This also dashed any hopes Schnitzelalm Racing had of taking their first NLS overall win.


Meanwhile, Julien Apothéloz (SUI), Patrick Assenheimer and Luca-Sandro Trefz (both GER) in the #55 Mercedes-AMG GT3 of Landgraf Motorsport drove a flawless race to finish the official fifth round of the 2022 NLS in fourth place. The Haupt Racing trio of Lucas Auer (AUT), Jordan Love (AUS) and Arjun Maini (IND) in the number 6 Mercedes-AMG GT3 crossed the line in sixth.

 

 

In only their second outing with the #177 Mercedes-AMG GT4 on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, Waldow Performance also claimed a second victory in class: Max Lamesch (LUX), Andreas Patzelt and Janis Waldow (both GER) won in the SP10 category as they did in the previous round of the season.
