DNLS 2020 Round 6 Review

CoRe’s #DNLS line-ups secure another double victory in GT4 & TCR category!

It was another flawless performance by both CoRe SimRacing entries in the sixth round of the 2020 Digital Nürburgring Langstrecken Series. The winning team, Carl Jansson, Sindre Setsaas and Matti Sipilä were the squad behind the #303 CoRe SimRacing 2 GT4 entry while Patrick Kubinji was supported by Kimmo Suominen this time by who made sure to continue the success streak in their Audi RS3.

Starting from 4th position in class, Kimmo was racing in a tight pack throughout the first couple of laps. Drafting down the straights and saving fuel against Full Send Racing, T3 Motorsport, Team Heusinkveld, Sorg Rennsport and SimRC, both Kimmo and Patrick were able to lead the race after taking advantage from opponent penalties. While Carl started the race from pole position in the GT4 category, Sindre and Matti only had to keep it clean due to an already big gap the team was able to pull early on.

Sindre Setsaas : “We simply had a consistently better pace than the competition today and we were able to stretch our lead continuously. Everyone in the class has a similar tactical approach, so the secret of our success is really the speed that the three of us can achieve.” Carl Jansson : “It is really great that we can compete against the BMW M4 GT4 in our class now, even if they were a bit off the pace today. I think that their tyres wear a bit more quickly than with our Porsche. When they get the hang of that, we will have some tight battles in the next few races. I am looking forward to that.”Matti Sipilä : “When my turn came, I already had a comfortable lead. I also had little traffic to deal with on the track, which allowed me to stay calm and enjoy the race.” The complete broadcast of this race can be found here.
