DMV GTC and VLN: Carrie Schreiner twice on position 2 with a strong pace
On 5th/6th June in Hockenheim, the 20-year-old woman from the Saarland already had a guest start in the DMV / GTC for her ADAC GT Masters Team HCB Rutronik in an Audi R8 LMS. The defending GT3 Champion of last year clearly won the pole position with the only time under the record of 1.39 with almost 4 tenths of a second advantage over the runner-up. Even in the race, she was clearly the fastest till the middle, despite her usual fair and clean driving style, but finally had to settle for P2 in the end. The reasons for this could be clearly seen in the livestream of the series.
Only one week later, in the 4th round of the VLN endurance championship on the Nürburgring Nordschleife she was again sitting in the Golf TCR with front-wheel drive of the sister company Volkswagen and showed that a good race driver can be fast with all drive concepts.
After the emotional appearance of the “Girls only Team“ of WS Racing and GITI Tires at the legendary 24-hour race at the same location a few weeks earlier, they started with a new driver line-up. Besides Carrie there was Laura Kraihamer from Austria, who among other series, usually starts in the German GT4. Both harmonized right away and finished second in the race in their class.
Carrie took the pole position and was by far the fastest pilot in the class. In addition, she was the first ever in the GITI Golf TCR at an official qualifying or race in the VLN, with a lap time of less than 9 minutes.
Thus, the whole team was completely satisfied with this great performance. “Considering that Laura has never driven race car with front-wheel drive before, she did a great job. Unfortunately, at the beginning of her stint, she had a lot of Code 60 phases and incipient drizzling rain. Afterwards she got more and more faster. In my last stint, I have really pushed again and have come closer and closer to the leader. Too bad that the race was shortened by half an hour, otherwise it might have been enough for the victory. With increasing track time, I feel more and more comfortable on the longest and most challenging racetrack in the world. At VLN 5 early August, I will certainly be back with my team WS Racing,“ said Carrie Schreiner very satisfied at the award ceremony in the evening.
