NLS 7: Carrie Schreiner and Peter Terting narrowly missed the overall podium
With P4 overall and P3 in the GT3 Pro class, the "fastest couple in Germany" achieved their best result so far in the Nürburgring Endurance Series on the longest, most beautiful and most difficult race track in the world. As so often on the Nordschleife, the more than 130 starters had to struggle with very changeable weather conditions.
In the qualifying the fastest laps were driven at the very end when the track was drying and just before the start of the race, it started to rain slightly again. Starting from P4, Peter Terting decided to use cutted slicks. But it turned out that rain tyres would have been the better choice, as it was partly really wet on the Nordschleife. He therefore fell back to P9, but then fought his way back up to P5 during his stint as the track was drying more and more and handed over to his teammate Carrie Schreiner. The 24-year-old racing amazon returned to the track on slicks. Shortly afterwards it started to rain again, and it became a real "slide" for Carrie. In her relatively long stint, she lost one position and on P6 she handed over to the experienced former DTM professional for the final sprint. He then had a completely dry track and was able to regain P5. Due to the disqualification of the fourth-placed driver, the team ended up in an excellent fourth place overall behind the new Porsche from Manthey Racing. No Mercedes AMG has ever finished better in this year's NLS season!
After the race, Carrie was of course very happy: "It was the first time I drove a GT3 with slicks in the rain on the Nordschleife, so I was very cautious at the beginning. But things got better and better and I only lost one position in the leading field during my long stint. Peter did a mega job in all conditions, which is why we deserved to finish so far ahead and were the best-placed Mercedes AMG in the field at the end. Many thanks to Schnitzelalm Racing for the perfectly prepared car. We can go on like this!
