RJN took two Nissan 350Z’s to the Nurburgring for a shake down test and VLN race prior to the 24 Hours of Nurburgring.The brand new VLN Auto Zeitung and Power Car 350Z had its first roll out on the Grand Prix Circuit Friday 25th April, it immediately proved to be as fast as last year’s GT4 type car and the drivers adapted very well to the right hand drive configuration. Both cars retired with minor mechanical problems but the Auto Zeitung car driven by Holger Eckhardt and Harald Muller was stranded at Flugplatz and could not be retrieved until the end of the race.

The black GT2 car driven by Kurt Thiim, Vincent Vosse and Alex Buncombe was retired as a precautionary measure due to engine misfire after 2 laps but had been timed at 9.07 min in qualifying which equated to third in 3.5 litre SP6 category. All the drivers indicated that a sub 9 min lap is now very close.The team are now very much looking forward to the 24 hr race on May 25th.
