Unlucky debut for KIA

At the fourth VLN race of the season, the Team Bastuck had for the first time entered a KIA cee ́d GT/R at the Nordschleife with. The drivers Miguel Toril and Bernhard Wagner, though, were desperately unlucky. Bernhard handed over the steering wheel to his team mate in the timed practice, but the session was already over in the first lap of the Spanish driver due to a collision at Metzgersfeld. A repair was not possible in the short time available.

“We see nevertheless a positive result. The step in the development that we have taken despite this short test is really great,” said team manager Anke Bastuck. The VLN start shall not remain a one-off event. “We intend to be back again with our endurance racing car at the sixth round.”
