After several postponements and cancellations due to poor weather conditions early this year, the VLN 2013 season was finally able to start on April 13 at the Nürburgring circuit with the VLN race.

It was the first opportunity for the 8 winners of the project 208 GTi Racing Experience to meet up since the International Final of La Ferte Gaucher, and start working together as a cohesive team to face the 24H Nürburgring 2013.

The learning program of the circuit having thus been condensed, the pilots were quickly confronted with the realities of the Nordschleife: merciless route and heavy traffic. On four 208 Racing Cup participants, two have fallen into these traps. The other two cars reach the finish and allow their pilots to make a double in their category.

The 208 GTi Peugeot Sport, still under development as designed in a very short time, has meanwhile proved in this first competitive outing it was well born and reliable signing a very convincing 40th place in the general ranking that placed it first in its category.

The next deadline for the 8 "208 GTi ambassadors" is set for April 27 for the VLN 3 race, the last step before the 24H Nürburgring 2013.
