I’ve had an incredible weekend which I want to talk more about today. The fourth run of the Porsche Sprint Challenge Central Europe took place in Most and it was the second to last stop of the series this year.
Without a doubt also due to my experience on this track (last year I celebrated a double victory with Patric Niederhauser), I was able to drive in the front pack in free practice, even though some other drivers had the chance to test on Thursday already.
In the first qualifying I wasn’t quite able to find the perfect lap which resulted in P6 for the start of the first race. A long safety car phase lead to a short time to improve any places in the race. Which is why I finished on second position in my class, resulting in a fifth overall position.
In the second qualifying it worked a lot better and I secured the third grid position which I was able to keep throughout the entire race. This didn’t just mean another podium success but also the victory in my class!
With these results I went more than happy to the Endurance race. But this one proved to be another story. I shared my car with Robert Sulma, who wasn’t able to compete in his own car due to a crash earlier in the weekend.
In my stint I started from P4 and also handed over the car on that position. In the end, it wasn’t enough for another podium.
I look back at the fourth race weekend of the Porsche Sprint Challenge Central Europe and am very satisfied. Backed with the recent success, it’s almost time for the finale event in Hungary, which is on October 4th and 5th.
At the moment I’m on the fourth place of the overall championship and on the second in the ProAM-class. With only four points behind the leader, I’m of course eager to fight for the title!
We ended the weekend on Sunday at Hockenheim, keeping my fingers crossed for my boyfriend who was fighting for the championship!
I’d like to congratulate the HCB-Rutronik Racing Team, with its drivers Patric Niederhauser and Kelvin van der Linde, to their ADAC GT Masters Championship Title!
