So let’s sum-up the last few events since we haven’t posted anything since Budapest which was at the end of August. Since then we’ve had 2 more races in the sprint cup.

At the first one, on the Nurburgring, we were struggling and had a difficult qualifying session where we ended up 25th.  Bernd and me didn’t give up tough, on the contrary, we fought our way back up to P8 in the qualy race(not bad gaining like 17 positions). In the main race we crawled up even further to finish on a satisfying 3rd place.

Then our next race was in Spain at the Circuito de Barcelona-Catalunya where we were a little less fortunate. On Saturday, it was the 1st of October and my birthdayJ, I qualified and managed to put the car on P4 as the fastest Mercedes AMG GT3 on track. That made me and the team pretty happy and to be honest it was the best birthday present I could have wished for. Then on Sunday in the qualy race I made a mistake at the start and cut the track, consequence; drive trough. Eventually we finished P10 and didn’t finish the main race at all due to tyre damage… Not really the way we wanted to end the season but nevertheless we still managed to secure a fourth position in the championship. Hats off for Enzo Ide winning the thing!
