Pittard looking to maintain strong pace at VLN7

Pittard looking to maintain strong pace at VLN7

Pole sitter from VLN6, David Pittard will be looking to maintain his impressive form at the 7th VLN round of the year back at the 25km long Nurburgring Nordschlife aboard the Total Racing Walkenhorst BMW M6 GT3 car.

The 26year old, duly set the fastest time for qualifying on only his 3rd outing in a GT3 car in his debut year racing at the “Green Hell”, as he targets a manufacture GT3 drive.

“Last weekend started brilliantly. I achieved my aims to producing a sub 8min lap around the VLN layout of the Nurburgring, it just happened to be quicker than everyone else’s time! I knew that I had the potential to do this at some point this year, however its a huge confidence boost to have done it so early in my debut VLN season. My aim now is to work on the areas I can still improve and maintain this pace for the remaining 3 races of the VLN season”

Pittard will pair with season partner Andreas Zigler & Blancpain driver Anders Buchardt in the SP9-PRE Pro-Am class and look for another podium finish after 2 DNF’s in a row due to technical faults.

“This weekend will be mixed conditions by the looks. It means I will get to try the Nordschlife in the wet for the first time in testing which will be very useful as I’m yet to drive the track in the wet. However I hope that the track will be dry for qualifying where I can try to work on the area’s of improvement and go Sub 8 again”

Raceday starts at 08:30 CET with qualifying for 90mins, before the 6hour race starts at Midday until 18:00. Live coverage can be seen on the VLN’s YouTube channel here
