    At the 24 the Maser would have real fuel consumption issues requiring a lot more pit stops than we will. Two minute stops add up.

    I'd love to see it race there but to be honest the only ones I think are in the same class as us are Porsche/BMW/MB and Audi.

    We shall see...

    A copy and paste

    Canceled VLN season opener due to an accident
    In the opening round of the VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring an accident happened on Saturday, in which several spectators were injured. One of them died despite immediately initiated rescue operations in the Medical Center of the circuit. The other injured spectators were taken for further medical care to the hospital. The race was stopped to allow quick access to the scene of the rescue services and not restarted. In the stretch airfield a participant vehicle drove off yet unknown reason from the track and came out from behind the safety features of the circuit to a halt. The VLN and the organizer of the race are deeply saddened and her thoughts are with the families and friends of the victims.

    oh man that's terrible :(

    My guess it that this is after Flugplatz, very fast, long right hand turn before the approach to Schwedenkruez? Or Maybe Kesselchen? High speed section wherever it is.
    Best wishes for the injured.

    That sir would be truly amazing (especially if the entire course was used). Of course that would entail refueling and a double allotment of tires but hey it would be awesome!
