KC Motorgroup Ltd. (KCMG) took a superb victory in Round 3 of the Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie, fulfilling the potential the team has showed throughout the 2023 campaign so far.
Racing in the #47 Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO, Martin Rump started third in the SP10 class, immediately taking the lead on the opening lap. A strong strategy from the team and excellent driving from Josh Burdon established a comfortable gap to the car behind. Despite a fuel pump issue at the second and final driver change, the squad’s advantage was large enough to allow Edoardo Liberati to exit the pit lane in first and the Italian used his pace to extend the lead and complete a dominant victory.
The next time the Hong Kong-based squad competes at the Green Hell will be in this weekend’s ADAC 24h Nürburgring Qualifiers, the final official event before the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring on 20-21 May.
“We finally got the result we deserved and I’m really happy for every single team member, who have all been working so hard since the beginning of the season. We’re making progress every time we hit the track so this win in a great reward for the whole crew.”
“A race full of positives and a deserved result. Thanks to the entire team for their great work, this win is exactly what we needed. Now, we have to keep the positive momentum going ahead of the Nürburgring 24 Hours. Wishing Edo, Josh and the team the best of luck for the Qualifiers this weekend!”
“We had a strong weekend in NLS3 and it was fantastic to bring home a win for the team and continue building momentum towards the N24. We’re learning a lot in every outing with this new car and I’m really happy with our progress. Thanks to the team for their continued hard work and I can’t wait to be back in the car this weekend.”
MATT HOWSON TEAM MANAGER
“To take KCMG’s first NLS victory is a great feeling and a deserved reward for the drivers and crew after their efforts throughout this season so far. The SP10 class is a challenging one to compete in, but we had a clean race and great speed, making it the perfect way to build up to this weekend’s Qualifiers ahead of the N24 in a month’s time. Congratulations to everybody, and now we continue to be hungry for further success at the Green Hell.”
PAUL IP KCMG FOUNDER
“I’m so happy for the entire team. We’ve been proving the pace of the Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO all season, so to now take victory is a great feeling. We’ve been building at each event and this is perfect preparation for the Nürburgring 24 Hours next month. All three drivers showed good pace and clearly the crew knows how to get the best out of this car, so we’ll look to continue this momentum into the Qualifiers this weekend.”
