VLN 2016: Race 9 (October 8th)
The ninth leg of his year’s Nürburgring Endurance championship (VLN) proved to be a tough challenge for Frikadelli Racing. Despite starting from pole position the team ended up on the seventh place only. Without Klaus Abbelen and Sabine Schmitz at the wheel of the Porsche 911 GT3 R, Patrick Huisman (NL) and Norbert Siedler (A) suffered from rapidly changing track conditions in the four-hour race. Frank Kräling and Christopher Brück had to retire their Porsche 911 GT3 MR after a collision with a lapped competitor. John Shoffner, Janine Hill and Arno Klasen made it to position four in the Cup2 category. Thomas Leyherr and Herbert von Danwitz worked their way up from last to tenth place in the BMW 235i one-make category.
