Walkenhorst Motorsport triumphs in the heat

BMW Sports Trophy, Germany, July 7th 2015: The Walkenhorst Motorsport powered by Dunlop team will never forget one of the hottest races in VLN history at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.

With temperatures well above 30 degrees Celsius, BMW Motorsport Junior Jesse Krohn, Michela Cerruti and Felipe Férnandes Laser clinched victory in the BMW Z4 GT3. This was the first win in the VLN Endurance Championship for the team and its principal Henry Walkenhorst, and also marked the first success in the BMW Z4 GT3 for Krohn. The 2014 BMW Motorsport Junior of the Year has been involved in BMW Motorsport’s GT programme since the start of the current season. Cerruti becomes only the second female to have won a VLN race. “We can hardly believe our luck – it is a crazy feeling,” said Walkenhorst, who finished ninth in the team’s second car. “We have been racing in the VLN for many years, and have won our first race today. This is a moment we will remember for a long time.” The 46th Adenauer ADAC Worldpeace Trophy was generally a happy stomping ground for BMW privateers. In total, they claimed seven class wins.
