Good pace, tough luck for Michela Cerruti In VLN Round 2 at the Nürburgring

The second round of the 2015 VLN Championship hasn’t been a particularly lucky one for Michela Cerruti, as the Italian female racer faced the full layout of the Nürburgring in a race that featured almost 200 cars. The 28-year-old drives was back behind the wheel of the Walkenhorst Motorsport-prepared BMW Z4 GT3 after delivering an impressive performance in the qualification race for the famed 24H Rennen.

Despite the extremely competitive pace held by the trio of Michela, Felipe Laser and John Edwards, a series of external circumstances prevented them from fighting among the frontrunners. After a tough qualifying, hampered by the yellow flag situations, the works BMW and Dunlop squad was slowed down by a small sensor issue in the first couple of laps. Nevertheless, they were able to recover up to the 6th place by running smoothly and consistently, before an alternator problem forced them to retire with just one lap to go.

“It’s been a positive race in terms of performance, although bad luck prevented us from scoring the results we deserved. In qualifying we had to settle for the 28th position on the grid due to the many yellow flags, but we recovered well and, after overcoming a small electric issue, we even made it up to the 6th place. Unfortunately, with one lap to go, an alternator problem stopped us for good with one to go. Although it was sad to stop on the verge of a good result, we were reassured that we have all what it takes to fight for the podium. Now we hope to be a little more lucky for the 24-hour race!”.
