Description

Donkervoort Customer Racing – a division of Donkervoort Racing aimed at supporting and ‘training’ Donkervoort drivers with racing ambitions – took three D8 GTOs to the famous Hockenheimring in Germany last weekend to compete in the High Performance Days organised by German car magazine Sport Auto. After a smart fourth place in the qualification, the Donkervoort D8 GTO Bilster Berg Edition driven by Denis Donkervoort fought its way through the final race on Sunday—beginning with a reversed-grid start (fastest qualifying time at the back, slowest in front) followed by a fierce battle with competing cars, including a Porsche 991 GT3 Cup and a Viper ACR with a whopping 850 hp—to achieve victory! After the race Denis Donkervoort said, “It's fantastic to see that the GTO in a fully street legal version can compete with pure race machines such as the Porsche and Viper. That makes the kick when you pass the finish line first all the greater and once again proves the speed and potential of this car on the track!” For more information please visit www.donkervoort.com Shot with SmartyCam No copyright infringement intended
