KC Motor Group Ltd. (KCMG) showed solid pace in round 3 of the Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie (NLS) as they continue their preparation for the ADAC TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Nürburgring next month.

After a promising start to the season with a podium at NLS 1, the team was eager to build on the momentum from the opening round. Dennis Olsen and Josh Burdon returned to the legendary track at the wheel of the #18 Porsche 911 GT3 R, joined by two-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Earl Bamber.

The Hong Kong-based team made strong progress through the field during the first two hours of the race, moving up 10 positions and into seventh overall, until Burdon got caught up in an incident on the straight of the Döttinger Höhe. The Australian had to return to the pits for repairs, but despite the unscheduled stop, the team rejoined the race and finished 17th, collecting more data on the 25.378km track.

KCMG will return to the iconic Nordschleife for two three-hour races as part of the ADAC TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Nürburgring Qualifiers on May 6-8, ahead of the main event on May 26-29.

“It was a tough weekend for us, but we certainly learned a lot. We were a bit unlucky in the race as we were involved in an incident, but Josh managed to get into the pits and the team was able to repair the damage, allowing us to improve and make more progress. The car was great, the team is doing a great job, so we have to keep working hard.”

“All in all, it was a positive weekend on the Nordschleife. We have gathered new information and our preparations are progressing well. It was a shame we got caught up in an incident, but we still managed to learn and improve. The car was fast again and the team is doing a really good job of making sure we keep making progress every time we go out on track.”

“It was great to return to the Nürburgring with KCMG. In the end it wasn’t the result we wanted, but that’s racing, especially on a track like the Nordschleife. It was a good weekend overall as we were able to make progress, so the goal now is to maintain this momentum.”

“Although the final result was affected by an incident involving other cars, the team was able to make excellent progress behind the scenes. I was delighted to welcome Earl back to the team who have done a fantastic job alongside Dennis and Josh. We can now focus our efforts on qualifying, which will be the last chance to test and develop our car for the 24-hour race in May.”

“After the postponement of NLS 2, I am delighted that the team has returned to re-record the incredible Nordschleife after their success at NLS 1. Unfortunately, it didn’t go our way this time after the incident, but the crew still worked hard to keep going and keep learning in the rest of the race. I was happy to see Earl return to the team and he did a great job with Dennis and Josh. Now the focus is on making sure we are ready for the qualifiers and the main event itself.
