Giti’s all-girls team wins big at the 2019 Nür­bur­gring VLN race fi­nal

Muscat Daily - - CORPORATE NEWS -

Not only did Giti suc­cess­fully de­but the first ever all-fe­male Nür­bur­gring racing team ear­lier last year, but they also claimed top spot as well with their all­girls team in the VLN race fi­nal.

Led by Team Chief Ellen Lehmann, the team is the first allfe­male squad to fea­ture in Nür­bur­gring’s long and il­lus­tri­ous his­tory. Through­out the nin­er­ace high-pro­file VLN se­ries held at Nür­bur­gring last year, the ‘Giti’s An­gels’ driv­ers and crew were very com­pet­i­tive and came away with a spec­tac­u­lar per­for­mance dur­ing the last VLN week­end.

Af­ter a strong start dur­ing the qual­i­fy­ing rounds, the Sun­day race started off a bit slow, but the Giti’s An­gels team steadily ad­vanced. Célia Martin got be­hind the wheel af­ter eight laps and ad­vanced to sec­ond place with an amaz­ing per­for­mance.

Car­rie Schreiner then took over the reins for the fi­nal lap with light­ning speed, build­ing up pres­sure on the lead­ing car.

Corinna Schäfer, Race En­gi­neer de­scribed the fi­nal lap say­ing, “We saw on the GPS that Car­rie could do an­other lap, if she crossed the fin­ish line in front of the over­all leader.

That was pretty close. But we cal­cu­lated that the fuel was enough and we also no­ticed that the lead­ing car had some prob­lems. That was our chance and we had to strike.”
