One very exciting race in the Opel Astra OPC Cup is the VLN Endurance Championship at the Nürburgring. The event has become more popular over the thirty-plus years that it’s been around, and we think that trend should continue based off of what we see in this video – which is some very solid racing.
Between the rain and it being an endurance race, the drivers faced quite a challenge. The man behind the wheel of this Astra is Alexander Shula with the Kappeler Motorsports team, and he doesn’t appear to be holding anything back. What makes the video more exciting to watch is the added suspense of a slick track, as you’ll see a few of the other race cars slipping and sliding, and at 9:35 you see a Porsche completely off-track.
Opel hasn’t officially released the results for this race, though current standings show that the Kappeler Motorsport team received only one point for the race. But that one point puts them in the 4th place position for the cup with 101 points instead of being tied with Lubner Motorsports which is currently in 5th place with 100 points.
That’s enough chit-chat for now. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the race.
