First test drives for Frikadelli Racing after the 'Corona break'
During the week, the district administration of Ahrweiler approved a comprehensive hygiene concept and gave the green light for the start of the Nürburgring long-distance series (VLN). Frikadelli Racing will return to the Nordschleife as part of the test and adjustment drives on 15.06.2020 and will contest it with both Porsche 911 GT3 R.
The steering wheel of the Neunelfer with the starting number 30 is shared during the first test drives after the long "Corona-Pause" Sabine Schmitz, Alex Müller, Lance David Arnold and team leader Klaus Abbelen. On the sister car with the starting number 31, the two Porsche factory drivers Kévin Estre and Michael Christensen take turns at the wheel.
"The test drives next Monday are incredibly important for our team. After testing in Barcelona at the beginning of March, it is now also a matter for us to collect the first data for the 2020 season at the Nürburgring Nordschleife," explains Abbelen.
The third vehicle, the Porsche Cayman GT4 (718 Clubsport) by Hendrik von Danwitz and "Jules", will be used for the first time at the season opener of the Nürburgring long-distance series on 27.06.2020.
