Highly dramatic finish to VLN2

There was plenty of drama at the finish of VLN2. The overall lead changed two times on the final lap.

When the chequered flag fell after four hours, Manthey Porsche #911 took the second win of the year out of the two races so far.

While the race was decided shortly before going onto the final lap at VLN1, the lead changed from the Manthey Porsche to Audi SPort Team Land #28 through the first few corners on the final lap. Through the four hours they had been battling hard with Haribo Racing Team Mercedes – AMG #8, Audi Sport Team WRT #49, Bentley Team ABT #37, and BMW Team Schnitzer #43 for the victory.

Only a few kilometres before the finish line we saw the Audi Sport Team Land #28 suddenly slowing down and made the green-yellow Manthey Porsche #911 retake the lead, while the Audi crawled home in fifth position.

The race was run under sunny sky, and there was plenty of battles in all 26 classes. Top three in the SP9 class for GT3 cars, and therefore the overall winners were split by only 7,4 seconds after the four hours of racing – and that without any kind of Safety Car, but only local Code-60 zones because the unavoidable incidents around the track. Fortunately there weren’t any series accidents this weekend.

The VLN series is on a break until June 24th where the third round will be held. The N24 race doesn’t count towards the VLN Championship, even though many of the teams are the same.
