“This weekend sets the scene for 2019” Big weekend ahead for Pittard at the Nurbrugring

“This weekend sets the scene for 2019” Big weekend ahead for Pittard at the Nurbrugring

David Pittard will return to the Nurburgring for VLN8 this weekend in October (The same weekend as in 2017 where he wasn’t driving), to face the 2019 competition!

With the 2018 European season coming to an end, both Audi and Aston Martin will debut their 2019 GT3 cars at VLN8 with a host of other manufacturer drivers making it a big weekend for David as he looks to continue his recent run of incredible form at the world’s most challenging race circuit.

Walkenhorst motorsport will be trying for their 3rd pole position in a row having topped the times previously at VLN6 & VLN7 with both Total and Playstation supported cars.

Having already proved his pace, ability and consistency against Porsche who debuted their 2019 911 GT3 R at the previous 2 VLN races at the hands of works drivers, David will continue to push against the 2 new manufactures and their works talent back at the Ring.

“It’s great to see such a healthy SP9 entry list. Now that there are less clashes with other European championships, the drivers and teams are back at the Ring starting their preparations for 2019, including the 2019 Nurburgring 24hrs. While they have been away I have been pushing hard to learn the circuit and I have had some great results, so I hope to continue that run of form against them this weekend as well!”

Raceday starts at 08:30 CET with qualifying for 90mins. Live German coverage starts at 08:15 here, before the 4hour race starts at Midday until 16:00. Live English coverage from 11:15 can be seen on the VLN’s YouTube channel here
