South African Bentley star Jordan Pepper is looking to go one better when he heads to the Nurburgring for the fifth round of the 2016 German ADAC GT Masters 9-10 August following his fine showing at the red Bull Ring last time out. Pepper, who moved across to the yellow #7 Deutsche Post Continental GT3 alongside Daniel Abt following a reshuffle in his ABT squad, rewarded the team with pole position and a second place in Austria and he’s now determined to go all the way next time out.
“Nurburgring is definitely a special place on the motorsport calendar, so I always look forward to going there every year,” Jordan admitted. “What makes it even better is that I scored my first international win there back in 2013, then I won again at the ‘Ring to wrap up the 2014 Scirocco Cup championship and then of course last year, where we took a dominant 18-second win in the rain only to be docked a 30 second penalty for a safety car infringement.
“So I definitely want to keep that cycle going and take my first race win of the season this weekend. “It will be a tough ask though – the Nurburgring’s tight and twisty first sector doesn’t suit the Bentley all that well, but I think we will have enough pace over the rest of the track to make amends. “Coming away from Red Bull Ring with my first GT racing pole position and a hard fought second, I think we can keep the momentum going.
“I am super eager to get back on track in my Bentley and go to battle – this will definitely be an exciting weekend for the fans at the track and those of you watching the racing elsewhere.” The Nurburgring ADAC GT Masters races will be live streamed via the ADAC GT website where you can also find live timing and the race program to follow Jordan throughout the weekend.
