ADAC GT Masters – Van der Linde keen on Nurburgring charge

South Africa’s 2014 ADAC GT Masters champion Kelvin van der Linde heads to the Nurburgring’s fifth round of the ADAC German GT season 9-10 August looking to keep on improving his Car Collection Audi R8.

“Nurburgring was our happy hunting ground last year,” Kelvin pointed out. “That’s where we turned our season around and when the results started getting better, so hopefully we can repeat that. “We were also on the podium for the first time there last year so with a little luck we can repeat that as I really enjoy driving at the ‘Ring.

“We have been struggling a bit of late – we do not have the budget to test as often as we would like, but we are working hard with the Audi Sport engineers to get all the help we can get our car up front. “Nurburgring is not too technical a track to set the car up for, so that will also help us versus the big budget teams that have an advantage through better infrastructure, more testing and the like, so let’s see what happens this weekend.”

Race fans can follow Kelvin and Spanish teammate Isaac Tutumlu’s progress through the Nurburgring weekend through live streaming via the ADAC GT Masters website www.adac-gt-masters.de/uk, where the weekend program and live timing can also be found
