Mcchip-dkr has ended its campaign with the KTM X-Bow GTX in the VLN Nürburgring Endurance Series for the time being.

In a short statement ahead of NLS3, team principle and driver Danny Kubasik gave a short but vague explanation.

“Unfortunately, this is currently not the kind of motorsport that we as a small private customer team would like to see,” Kubasik said.

“We do motorsport with the aim of being successful and the basic conditions have to be right.”

The Cup X class winners of NLS2 refused to cite any details, but did later put out a video statement rebuking a multitude of rumours such as the loss of sponsorships (the KTM X-Bow GTX project was originally announced as fully self-funded), a change of plans from the actual car owner, discontent between mcchip-dkr and KTM X-Bow dealer and fellow Cup X competitor Teichmann Racing or VLN, or technical issues with the car.

Objections to the current Balance of Performance were also dispelled.

Mcchip-dkr does not rule out bringing the X-Bow back later in the year. The original plan was for the team to make the car Nordschleife-ready during the first NLS races for the car owner who would then use it for track days ahead of a possible race appearance.

Mcchip-dkr will continue to run a customer BMW 325i E90 in the V4 class.
