The fans of the VLN endurance racing championship Nürburgring may look forward to a very special highlight at the final of the season to take place on 27th October. In addition to the race running over the distance of four hours with the exciting decision still outstanding in the Championship, the ‘Falken Drift Show’ will be in the focus at the 37th DMB Münsterlandpokal.
Seven drift experts coming from the Netherlands and from Great Britain will put the heat on the spectators in the Mercedes Arena between the practice and the race. In addition to Remmo Niezen, the winner of this year’s drift challenge during the Tuner Grand Prix of VLN partner Sport Auto at the Hockenheimring, Lars Verbraeken, Michel Ditmarsch (all in BMW E30), Matt Carter (Nissan Sylvia S15), Paul Cheshire (Nissan Skyline G35), Alan Green (Nissan 180sx) and James Deane (Mazda RX7) will join the action. All of them have full control of their sports cars and will explore the limits of grip and beyond. This very special show will start after the timed practice at 10:30hrs and last until 11:15 – 45 minutes first class drift action, presented by VLN track commentator Lars Gutsche.
“We are usually participating in competitions, trying to score points and experiencing some kind of pressure of course,” informs Niezen. “A pure show event such as during the VLN final round at the Nürburgring is of course much more relaxed. Our main purpose is to enjoy the spectators as much as possible and this is what we are going to do. We wish to present an excellent show which nobody should miss.”
After the race start of the 37th DMV Münsterlandpokal at 12 o’clock, the drift drivers will be available for the fans to collect autographs in the paddocks. The cars may of course also be inspected there in detail.
Access to the open grandstands at the Grand Prix Circuit, to the paddocks and to the starting grid will be available at the family-friendly price of 15 Euro per person. Children up to 14 years of age are free. Tickets will be available on-site at the cash boxes.
