Thanks.

I'm always surprised by the number of people into the Nürburgring's pits.

Just on my way to the airport.

In short: very foggy morning which delayed the qualification and the race itself was shortened a bit. Dry and good conditions.

We where 21 cars In the very competitive V4 class.

We ended up in 10th place which surprised us. Such a good result will probably not happen again.

Gotta go to FRA

Back home after a let down from Scandinavian Airlines. They thought is was better for me to sleep on Clarion Hotel on Arlanda Airport than home in bed.

We did a pretty good race for our standards. Avoided possible bad situations on track. Unfortunately the hood came loose on the first lap which costed us about 2:45 min.
This was bad as we where on a one stop strategy and most of our competitors on a two stop.

I had a small incident when a GT86 thought he would improve my front right fender even though I gave him a lot space - I think

We qualified as #157 of 169 cars in total.

We ended up as #118 in total and 10th in class.

Random picts from the Friday before race.



Friday had wonderful weather 16-17°C(!) Saturday: Cold and foggy.


New for this yea in VLN is that we have a button on the car where we select which is the current driver. We also must have a data logger so that race director can extract data from us in case of a protest. The cell phone is used for contact with the team. It is connected to a box over Bluetooth and the box is connected to my helmet headset. A rather cost effective solution for smaller teams.

Drivers briefing #1, there is two more. 170 cars, 2-3 drivers gives 400-500 drivers.

Race day started a bit foggy: qualification and race was postponed.




Dorint Hotel in the background and the front straight of the GP track almost visible.

The winning teams race control. We shared the box with Rowe BMW.

Our teams race control, Ours is cheaper






Ready to go.

Sealed engine.

Normal tank station pumps are used in VLN, RCN and N24. Because of this you are allowed to change driver, wheels and refuel at the same time.
