Racing driver Adam Christodoulou has admitted the Nürburgring 24-hour race was “an eye opener”. The Lichfield speedster was part of a four-man team behind the wheel of the BMW GT4, but despite promising spells during the endurance event, the 24 hours ultimately ended in disappointment.

Christodoulou had a lucky escape when the power steering failed during the race and he was forced to use all of his racing experience to keep the car on the road. But a later contact on the track eventually ended the team’s hopes and they were forced to retire. The city driver said:
“The whole team were great. They put so much effort in getting the car back on track but once it was over we were all gutted. We had the speed and consistency, and had a strong chance of winning the race in out category, but this time it was not to be. The ‘green hell’ – the Nürburgring 24 hours – got the better of the car. “The weekend has been an eye opener for me. The big manufacturers and names were racing today, and taking part in this event again is something that I plan on doing next year, and for many years to come.”
Christodoulou will be looking to put the demons behind him when he returns to the CRS Racing Ferrari 430 GT2 car in the Le Mans series. He said:
“We’ll be in North east of Italy at Imola in a six-hour endurance race where I’ll be gunning for a podium result.”
