Finnentrop. The Eibach Group is pleased to announce that several partners made it onto the podium with Eibach components at this year's 24-hour race at the Nürburgring and congratulates the winning teams. The top ten saw no fewer than eight vehicles with Eibach Race Springs in places two to nine, which was a remarkable success. The performance of premium partner Black Falcon, who finished in the Top 5 three times in an AMG GT3 and saw two class wins in the SP10 and V6, is also particularly pleasing. Last year's winner, Audi Sport Team Land Audi R8 LMS, can also be congratulated on sixth place overall in the face of a particularly difficult race.
Truly breathtaking race
The race this year was again marked by the dreaded weather caprices of the Eifel. First a thrilling race with plenty of action throughout the field developed in bright sunshine. The overall lead changed a total of eight times in the first five hours alone. The night then made for an even more exhilarating race with the onset of rain, from which the Black Falcon Mercedes AMG GT3, which had been perfectly adapted to the extreme conditions, emerged as the leader shortly after three o'clock. But the Winner over all – with a relatively small margin – was the Manthey Porsche, running on Suspension Components by our customer KW.
Our very best congratulations also to Porsche and the Manthey Team.
The victorious Eibach partners:
Victory by Black Falcon Team IDENTICA in a Mercedes AMG GT4
Victory by Black Falcon Team TMD Friction in a Porsche 911 Carrera
Victory by Bas Koeten Racing in a Seat Cupra TCR
Victory by Tim Schrick with Subaru Tecnica International in a Subaru WRX STI
Double victory and 4th place for Securtal Sorg Rennsport in a BMW 325i
Successful in the overall standings
In addition to the winning teams and those placed in the top ten, Eibach also congratulates the third-placed driver in the AT class Patrick Brenndörfer from Bremotion in his zebra-look Ford Mustang GT. Racing cars also equipped with Eibach Race Springs finished in respectable positions in the overall standings with 12th place for Audi Sport Team BWT in an Audi R8 LMS and 14th place for Mücke Motorsport in an Audi R8 LMS. Congratulations also go to Securtal Sorg Rennsport for the class victory in a BMW M235i.
Eibach wishes to thank the partners involved for their trust and is eagerly looking forward to many more mutual racing highlights and successes!
