Dopesheet: Blancpain Endurance Series - Round 5 Nürburgring, Germany (22 - 23 September 2012).
Prospeed Porsche trio prove to be 'Ring masters in thrilling battle
Germany?s Marc Hennerici, joined by Marc Goossens (BEL) and Xavier Maassen (NLD) in the ProSpeed Competition Porsche No.75 won a thrilling Blancpain Endurance Series fifth round at the Nürburgring today.
Goossens fended off a persistent challenge from Dutchman Jeroen Bleekemolen in the Black Falcon Mercedes No.18 to win by just 0.521s, the closest winning margin in the history of the championship.
Hennerici started the ProSpeed Competition Porsche 911 GT3 R from seventh on the grid but dived up the inside of the pack at the first corner chased by China?s Cheng Congfu in the Black Falcon Mercedes.
Hennerici led to the first round of pit stops where the Porsche was jumped by the Black Falcon Mercedes who got Mike Parisy (FRA) into the race ahead of Maassen.
Behind was drama as the championship-leading Marc VDS Racing BMW No.3 with Finland?s Markus Palttala at the wheel, was hit by Frenchman Dino Lunardi in the Sainteloc Racing Audi R8 LMS ultra No.40 and speared off into the barrier. With chassis damage the car was out on the spot.
