Ens round 2 is in the books. The race started at thursday with free practise in groups. It was the first time we used the brand new 988 Prototyp car. The first day we all must learn the car and how to handle it. So after the first day i find myself on 20th position. After a few meetings with the whole team we found a good setup after practise but the difficult and everytime different track conditions made it not so easy for us to have the right setup at the right time. The competition was again on the highest level and but it was possible for me to reach the final direkt on 9th position. I was not almost happy with my setup, so we discussed after the qualifikation and changed some small things for the training in front of the final. Maybe this time i was the only serpent car in the final, because my mates had some troubles in their finals. But for sure the potential was there to have two or three cars in the main.
The final went okay for me at the first half of the race. I could drove constant laptimes without mistakes and after the tire change i was in 4th position only 1 lap behind the leader. But after 30 Minutes my glow plug broke and i lost 4 laps in the pits. Bad luck this time. Maybe a podium position would have been possible. So only a dissapointed 8th position for me.
We had a lot of fun on and beside the track with the whole team and the teamwork made this final possible. The 988 showed great performance for the first rollout and we are very close to the top guys.
Also my 1:8 skills improve step by step.
I want to thank my pitman Tobias Kerler this time and Michael Salven for an excellent tire stop and brillant refuelings. Also thanks to all my sponsors which made this all possible and for the trust in me.
Next race is the european championship 1:10 for me with my 748 Natrix WC.
See u on the track.
