At the third round of the VLN endurance championship Nürburgring, two team had to be disqualified subsequently: the Team Pixum Adrenalin Motorsport, BMW M235i Racing Cup (#650) as well as Mühlner Motorsport, Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (#123).
Both of the cars did not comply with the applicable technical regulations for classes Cup 5 and Cup 2. The Adrenalin-BMW was fitted with a non-homologated fuel tank cover, as discovered during the routine after-event scrutineering. In the case of the Mühlner-Porsche, the scrutineeres became active upon a protest lodged by a competitor and they ascertained that a competent in the area of the front part of the vehicle did not comply with the regulations.
The disqualification will have an effect to the leading positions in the championship. The up-to-today championship leaders David Griessner and Yannick Fübrich in car no. 650 had been at the start as the current championship leaders; the Mühlner-Porsche was driven by Marcel Hoppe, Moritz Kranz and Tim Scheerbarth, so far holding six place in the championship before VLN race 3.
