Laura Kraihamer returns to NLS with KTM in 2022
Austrian ace Laura Kraihamer will return to the NLS in 2022 with Teichmann Racing. Kraihamer will alternately share the KTM X-Bow with Hendrik Still and permanent teammates Constantin Schöll and Stephan Brodmerkel, also competing at the 24 hours of Nürburgring.
Teichmann Racing will be back at the Nordschleife with two KTM X-Bow GTX cars for the 2022 season: George Teichmann continues his endurance commitments with his team, together with two full-time entries for the whole Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie (NLS) and the upcoming 24 hours of Nürburgring.
The first KTM will be driven by Georg Griesemann, Maik Rönnefahrt, Yves Volte and Felix von der Laden. Behind the wheel of the other car we will find Constantin Schöll, Stephan Brodmerkel and, alternately, Hendrik Still and Laura Kraihamer.
The talented Austrian will enter selected rounds of the NLS season and the 24h Nürburgring from 28th to 29th May, in her green-black KTM.
Laura is no newbie in motor racing as she started karting at the age of 12 and immediately fell in love with motorsport. When the budget didn't allow her to jump into the next level of single-seaters, she had to sit out a few years before making her return behind the wheel of a GT car in the KTM X-BOW Battle. As she joined the Reiter Young Stars program, Laura's next step was a GT4 seat: in 2017 and 2018 she scored her first podium finishes, which followed her biggest step to date in her career - the announcement as factory driver for KTM.
Laura joined the ADAC GT4 Championship in 2019 and took the Sunday's race victory at the opening round at Oschersleben together with teammate Reinhard Kofler.
Following the class victory in the Barcelona 24H race and more solid results in GT4, Kraihamer competed in the very popular NLS championship in Germany in 2020, also sharing the seat with Carrie Schreiner and Célia Martin at 24 Hours of Nürburgring in a VW Golf GTI TCR car prepared by the WS Racing's Giti Tire supported project "Girls Only".
Last season she joined Teichmann Racing for some rounds of the NLS season at the Nordschleife including the 24h Nürburgring in a KTM X-Bow GTX. Laura also competed with True Racing and Reiter Engineering in the DTM Trophy with a KTM X-Bow GT4 EVO.
While Kraihamer wasn't in the driving seat of the NLS season opener last weekend, the next event is scheduled for 9th April, for the 46th NIMEX DMV 4 hours at the Nürbugring.
