Second place success for George Richardson with NGK Spark Plugs RaciNGKTeam at Nürburgring

Joining RaciNGKTeam for the first full race of the VLN season, George finished the day celebrating his second podium position of 2015.

The RaciNGKTeam stood their ground over the four-hour race through the ‘green hell’ of the Nürburgring to take a secure second place in the demanding SP8 class.

“This was fantastic result,” said George. “It was great to race for NGK alongside Robert Smith and Stephan Kuhs. The competition was strong, but we kept the pace throughout what was a tricky race with the conditions. The team worked together perfectly, and the pit crew did a brilliant job when we needed a fast repair and Pit Stops, all round a brilliant start to the season for my VLN program.”

The team started in sixth position and had pushed forward to fourth when George had to make the unplanned pit stop, to fix a loose diffuser. In the last hour of the race, George then forged ahead moving the RaciNGKTeam Ferrari 458 SP8 up two more positions to take the well-deserved second place.
