Professional MotorSport World Expo Technology Forum & Workshops Highlight: How to drive the fastest VLN race lap recorded on the Nürburgring. Nico Verdonck is the current VLN race lap record holder on the famous Nordschleife circuit. In September 2016 he drove his Alzen Motorsport-entered Ford GT to a new lap record in the VLN championship.

For his second appearance at the wheel of the Alzen Motorsport entered Ford GT in the VLN championship, Nico Verdonck left a strong impression: the young Belgian treated himself to a new race lap record in GT on the mythical Nordschleife circuit.

Nico was asked again to drive for PROsport Performance in one of their Porsche Cayman’s at VLN7. For this race it was the PRO4, designed and manufactured by PROsport Performance, to race together with Jonas Carlsson, Nicola Moller Madson and Jorg Viehbahn.

In one single weekend combining the sixth round of the VLN on the ‘big’ Nürburgring at the wheel of a powerful Ford GT and the 24 Hours of Zolder behind the wheel of a BMW M235i Racing Cup, appearing on the podium in each category both at the Eifel and the Limburg, Nico Verdonck took on a major challenge and was rewarded.
