VLN announced on Thursday it has cancelled next week’s Nürburgring Endurance Series doubleheader season finale planned for 7th and 8th November in light of the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases in Germany and Europe.
“We worked for as long as possible to be able to hold our event with a hygiene concept adapted to the development of the pandemic,” says Christian Stephani, Managing Director of VLN.
“The measures adopted by the federal government on Wednesday to contain the Corona pandemic, after consultation with the responsible authorities, leave no space to organize our races. Among other things, all contacts should be reduced to a minimum. We take this into account with the cancellation.
“Our season ended prematurely, and we are now putting all our energy into planning for the 2021 season.”
The cancellation of the final two races as well as last week’s sixth NLS race means the 2020 season came to an end on 29th August after just five races. The schedule was already reduced to eight races after the initial start of the season was cancelled in March and April.
2018 champions Danny Brink, Philipp Leisen and Christopher Rink (#701 Pixum CFN Team Adrenalin Motorsport, V4 class) stand atop the charts in the Nürburgring Endurance Series championship, while the #34 Walkenhorst Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 (regularly driven by David Pittard, Mikkel Jensen and Christian Krognes) leads the Rowe Speed-Trophäe.
