The Technical Regulations for the 2023 season of the Nürburgring Endurance Series are finalised. The version submitted to the DMSB – which is subject to approval – is now available online. The Sporting and Organisational Regulations will follow shortly.
The aim of the VLN technical team consisting of Wolf von Barby, Sebastian Schuricht and Mario Hermani is to simplify the regulations. As part of this, for example, the vehicle classes will be reduced, deadlines for applications submitted by participants will be extended or abolished and the approval process for technical installations will be enhanced. Another main focus is cost reduction. The VLN has successfully approached the DMSB for a postponement of the compulsory installation of FT3 safety tanks. In addition, data loggers will in future be waived in the V-Classes.
“Our new technical trio has done a brilliant job in putting together a coherent set of regulations within a very short time and many of the requests of our participants have been taken into account,” says Mike Jäger, Managing Director of VLN Sport GmbH & Co. KG. “Our main concern is to give the teams planning security. We have improved many areas that had caused discussions in the past. All in all, however, we are talking about a highly refined evolutionary process and not about a revolution in the Technical Regulations.”
The Sporting Regulations for the 2023 Nürburgring Endurance Series are also on the finish straight and about to be published. “Here again, we have complied with the requests of our customers in many places,” says Jäger. “For example, the 12h Nürburgring will now feature two separate 6h races – one on Saturday and one on Sunday.”
