KC Motorgroup Ltd. (KCMG) is set to take on the ADAC 24h Nürburgring Qualifiers this weekend (22-23 April), as the outfit looks to continue its momentum following their dominant Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie victory last time out.
The Hong Kong-based squad put together an excellent performance to take SP10 class victory in NLS3 and now aims to replicate that form as preparation continues for the Green Hell’s most famous race.
The team will compete on both Saturday and Sunday, looking to optimise the performance of its #47 Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO. Edoardo Liberati and Josh Burdon will take part in a two-hour contest on Saturday followed by a four-hour event on Sunday.
The Qualifiers will be the squad’s last opportunity to race on the Nordschleife ahead of the ADAC TotalEnergies 24 Hours of Nürburgring, on 18-21 May.
“The ADAC 24h Nürburgring Qualifiers is our final opportunity to collect valuable data and improve the car ahead of the 24 Hours, which is obviously the main goal this season. We also want to remain competitive at the Nordschleife and continue the form that saw us win at NLS3, so hopefully we can get another strong result.”
“I’m really looking forward to the Qualifiers. As it’s the last meeting before the N24 there is an extra level of importance, and we will be working hard to fine tune our set-up, allowing us to be as competitive as possible.”
MATT HOWSON TEAM MANAGER
“After claiming victory at NLS3 we head into the Qualifiers with high expectations. It’s an important weekend as it serves as the final chance to prepare on-track for the 24 Hours of Nürburgring in May. We’re aware that the competition will be strong, so we’ll need to maximise the performance of the #47 Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO ahead of the event. KCMG is now an experienced team at the Nordschleife, so the goal is to succeed at the Green Hell’s most famous race. Martin’s absence will be a big miss, but we look forward to welcoming him back into the fold for the N24 itself.”
PAUL IP KCMG FOUNDER
“I’m really excited to see KCMG compete again at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, it’s an event with an incredible history and it’s always a special moment to see our car on track here. We have been very competitive throughout the NLS season so far, and naturally the goal is to take that into the qualifying races and beyond. This weekend is all about continuing our preparation and understanding of the #47 Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO. If we keep making positive strides, as we have done all season, then I’m optimistic we’ll be competitive.”
