GLOBETROTTING Andy Meyrick continued his flying form at the weekend.
Fresh from success at the Algarve Historic Festival, the Delamere-based racer produced a top display in the final round of the VLN Endurance Racing Championship at the Nürburgring, Germany.
The 26-year-old, teaming-up with James Appleby and Ant Scragg in a Aston Martin Vantage GT4, finished second in class and 28th overall out of 176 entries.
It was Meyrick’s second crack at the infamous Nordschleife track set among the Eifel mountains and nicknamed ‘The Green Hell’ by Jackie Stewart.
The former Chester King’s School thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will return to the circuit next May to take part in the 24 Hours Nürburgring race.
Meyrick said: “I’m really happy with how this weekend has gone. Track conditions were pretty tricky at times but the team did a great job and we can be satisfied with second place.
“The Aston Martin V12 Vantage has been a real pleasure to drive. I was able to push the car hard in my first stint to get us into the lead and the car was both consistent and great fun to drive.”
Next up for Meyrick is a trip to China to represent Aston Martin Racing in the Six Hours of Zhuhai, the final round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup.
Two weeks ago Meyrick, alongside his father Peter, wrapped up the Group C Racing class two title with victory in the season finale staged at the Algarve Historic Festival in Portimão, Portugal.
