Just one week after the 24h race in Spa-Francorchamps, we were on the Ardennes roller coaster from August 02 — 04. Five vehicles were entered under our application: Besides three Mini JCW Challenge in the Cup- und Tourenwagen Trophy and our Porsche 997 GT3 in the GTRS, we also participated with a Mini in the RCN.
Cup- und Tourenwagen Trophy
In the strongly occupied class of the mini vehicles, five class competitors started at the weekend. It was Pirmin Weixler who secured class victory in the first race after an exciting fight. Weixler, who starts for Heide-Motorsport, also won the second race. Manfred Siek, another pilot of our team, secured a podium position and crossed the finish line as third in his class.
GT- und Tourenwagen Racing Series
In his only second race with the Porsche 997 GT3, Michael Heide delivered a strong weekend and secured P3. The first podium in the series for GT and touring cars — it can go on like this.
Rafael Kliem and Michael Heide made a guest start with a Mini JCW Challenge as part of the RCN. The 2.5‑hour race on the almost 7km long track demanded a lot from the team and drivers. We were really satisfied with another podium place at the end of the weekend!
