Axis of Nürburgring 24

The international Axis of Awesome strikes again as our longtime favorite Italian tracktard (and GT racer) Sergio "Sergini" Negroni will be carrying the Axis colors at the 2012 ADAC 24h Rennen at the Nürburgring.

The original plan was for Sergio to drive his own Porsche GT3 Cup but last minute issues made it so he had to find another ride. He worked out a deal to drive an Aston Martin Vantage GT4 from team HRT competing in the SP10 GT4 class.

Sergio is a long time Porsche driver and I was was just teasing him asking if he still remembers how to drive a car with and engine in front. He said the Aston's engine is fantastic but the car has very little feel and communication compared to a 911. "Feels like the Playstation".

As I write Night qualifying is starting. Live timing and scoring can be found HERE along with a live video (for the race) feed with commentary sponsored by Simraceway.

Sergio promised to send pictures during the event but, I know how these things go so if you find any shots of the car in action, send them to us!
