Trial and hiring day on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife canceled
Due to bad weather conditions with snow and sub-zero temperatures, the trial day on the Nürburgring scheduled for Saturday was cancelled.
The start of the season on the Nürbugring-Nordschleife falls victim to the weather. The trial and recruitment day planned for Saturday was cancelled on Thursday morning. The reason for this is the weather forecasts, which are consistent in predicting permafrost and snowfall for Saturday in the Eifel.
“We would have liked to have staged the event, but according to current forecasts we do not believe that this is realistic and would like to save you and the teams from having to cancel your trip at an early stage,”the Nürburgring announced as organizer.
The day of trial and adjustment will be used by the teams of the VLN Long Distance Championship and the RCN Circuit Challenge to subject the vehicles to a first functional check on the Nordschleife after the winter break and to adjust the set-up after parts of the track have been newly asphalted in winter.
But this dress rehearsal falls victim to the predicted onset of winter this year. This means that the teams and drivers will have to jump into the cold water next week, as the 24th day of the race will be the first day of the week. The first race of the VLN season will take place in March.
