– The Digital Nürburgring Endurance Series powered by VCO enters the last third of the season

– Motor sport equipment supplier NIMEX is partner of the seventh DNLS run

– Beitske Visser debuts in the virtual Nordschleife Championship

From the real back to the digital race track: Next Saturday (15 August) the seventh race of the Digital Nürburgring Long Distance Series powered by VCO is on the agenda. The NIMEX 3h race marks the beginning of the last third of the season and heralds the hot phase in the championship decision.

Due to scheduling overlaps with events in real motor sport, the race will be held during prime time: The live broadcast on www.VLN.de starts at 6:30 pm with the qualifying of the SP9 cars, the race starts at 7 pm over the three-hour distance.

“When we planned the DNLS calendar at the end of March, it was not yet foreseeable that the date on August 15 would collide with several events in real motorsport. The calendars of many series were planned at short notice due to Corona. Now, Formula 1, WEC, ADAC GT Masters and DTM take place simultaneously on one weekend and the motorsport fans are faced with the decision which broadcast to watch,” says Christian Stephani, Managing Director of VLN VV GmbH & Co. KG.

“Fortunately, in the virtual world there are possibilities to act flexibly. Our race now starts at prime time at 7 pm. So that it is nevertheless a visually stunning spectacle, we will simply simulate the usual lunchtime with optimal conditions”.

In the Digital Nurburgring Endurance Series, all four classes are judged separately. The MAHLE Racing Team leads the SP9 class after six of nine races. In the NIMEX 3h race, Agustin Canapino and Daniel Lafuente in the team’s Audi R8 LMS will start to defend the top of the table. After the triumph in race three, the duo is also among the favourites for overall victory. The championship in Cup 2 (Porsche 911 GT3 Cup) is fiercely contested.

Ascher Racing has won three races so far and leads the tableau. In second place is SimRC. The team from Hanover recently showed an upward trend. Third and second places were recently followed by the first class victory. SimRC also plays a role in the GT4 class SP10 title. With three podium places the team currently ranks second behind Sorg Rennsport eSports GT4.

The virtual counterpart of the successful NLS racing team from Wuppertal won the fourth round and then scored two more top 3 results. In the SP3T class CoRe SimRacing is ahead. Second place also goes to SimRC. Both teams fought thrilling duels for victory in the last three races, each with the better outcome for CoRe.

Celebrity newcomer at BS+COMPETITION: Beitske Visser celebrates DNLS debut

In the SP9 class, one professional racer from real-life motorsport is mandatory in each case. Due to the aforementioned overlapping dates, these are now missing on some vehicles in the DNLS. In order to enable the teams concerned to start in the seventh race anyway, there is an exception.

Purely simracing pairings will receive a 180-second time penalty as compensation. BS+COMPETITION takes a different approach. The racing team from Munich has found a prominent replacement for regular driver Philipp Eng. The DTM driver’s place in the BMW Z4 GT3 is taken by BMW works driver Beitske Visser. “I am very much looking forward to my first race in the GT3 on the Nordschleife,” says the 25-year-old Dutchwoman.

“After my real racing commitments in the Green Hell and countless laps in the simulator, I’m now eager to see how I will perform in the virtual competition.” Visser acquired her DMSB-Permit Nordschleife (DPN) in 2017 in the Nürburgring Endurance Series and was involved in the final test programme of the BMW M2 CS at the Nürburgring last year.

At her side will be the experienced Simracer Cem Bölükbasi from Turkey in the BS+COMPETITION Z4 GT3.

NIMEX becomes new partner in DNLS

In the world of motor sports, the name NIMEX as a motor sports equipment supplier for almost 40 years is wellknow. The company from Monheim distributes motorsport spare parts and equipment. Customers include both tough trackday drivers and works teams from well-known manufacturers. The NIMEX portfolio includes brake systems and vehicle technology for the construction of racing vehicles as well as pit technology and equipment.

In addition to sales, NIMEX also carries out engineering and product development. As a racing service, the company’s experts are on hand to provide advice and support to the active drivers on the race track. On the Internet, the new online shop at www.NIMEX.com is the number one contact point. In future, the NIMEX logo will be present in the Digital Nürburgring Long Distance Series on all racing vehicles below the start number mat on the front bonnet.

DNLS is a real popular sport – anyone can be there

The eighth race of the Digital Nürburgring Endurance Series will take place on 17 October. In the Cup 2, SP3T and SP10 classes, interested simracing teams can participate. Starting positions can be found out about the event qualification at the beginning of October. All information is available at to.vln.de/dnls.
