1,000th class win for a Mercedes Customer Racing team at NLS season opener

21.04.2021: The venue for the milestone achievement could not have been more fitting: the Customer Racing programme celebrated its first ever victory on the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife in October 2010.

The venue for the milestone achievement could not have been more fitting: the Customer Racing programme celebrated its first ever victory on the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife in October 2010.



After the season opener of the 2021 Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS) last weekend, the Customer Racing teams have now chalked up a 1,000th class victory for the Mercedes-AMG GT3, Mercedes-AMG GT4 and SLS AMG GT3.



In the 45th NIMEX DMV 4-hour race, GetSpeed Performance, BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR and Schnitzelalm Racing were all winners in their respective classes, making the grand total a nice round number.



GT3 debutant Moritz Kranz (GER) and Janine Shoffner (GBR) finished 13th overall in the number 9 Mercedes-AMG GT3 fielded by GetSpeed Performance, a result that was enough to secure them a commanding victory in the SP9 Am class.

 

BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR spearheaded by Mustafa Mehmet Kaya (TUR), Gabriele Piana (ITA) and Mike Stursberg (GER) in the number 140 Mercedes-AMG GT4 picked up on their dominant form of the previous season, securing victory in the combined SP4T and SP8T class ahead of the number 141 sister car.



The thousand-victory milestone was then passed with Fidel Leib, Marcel Marchewicz and Reinhold Renger (all GER) in the number 162 Schnitzelalm Racing Mercedes-AMG GT4 claiming victory in the SP10 class.
