Invitation race: Nurburgring

Posted on 18th Jul 2017 in The Road to Glory

I participated in the special invitation race of the FIA WEC - 6 Hours of Nürburgring.

This race was a combination of the Porsche Carrera Cup and the Porsche Sports Cup Germany.

The qualification went well:
Race 1: P2 overall 
Race 2: P3 overall

In typical Eifel conditions I had a nice battle for P2 with Thomas Preining. The speed was there, the handling was there, but unfortunately I made a mistake and lost that battle. I finished P3 overall (P2 in the Carrera class).

Race 2 was a wet race. Already in the first lap the leading Sports Cup car spun off the track, so again a battle between me and Preining unfolded. This time is was a battle for the win. It was hard, because the conditions on the track were tricky. The battle was fair and exciting, were we changed positions a few times. Then Preining made a mistake and i kept on driving. It resulted in my first win!
