Double victory for volcano-Racing-Motorsport-Mintgen at Hockenheim
(Translated from German) - Mayen / Wassenach / Andernach. The two rounds of the Touring Car Challenge at the DMV this past weekend were clearly a matter for Sascha Bert and Heiko Hammel with the volcano-Racing-Mintgen Motorsport Dodge Viper Competition Coupe GT3. With two overall wins, the team triumphed in the Mayen Hockenheimring Baden.
"It has been fun today to drive the car! The car balance was really good, "praised Sascha Bert after the race, the Dodge Viper Competition Coupe Michael Mintgen developed GT3. The quality of the car was also noticeable in the race. Sascha Bert (Ober-Ramstadt) started from the second position and was able to enforce the same in the first turn against his closest rivals Jürg Aeberhard in Turbo Porsche and take the lead. The leadership he gave to the finish off no longer. The second round on Saturday, 18 June, denied Heiko Hammel (Wohlmutshausen). Kierdorf Albert took over for the first laps in a Porsche 997 RSR had the lead, but later the ever-attacking Heiko Hammel bend in the Dodge Viper Competition Coupe. Hammel confidently defended his lead until the finish.
"Today we have again shown that our slightly modified Dodge Viper Coupé GT3 is a sports car capable of winning customers. Especially the chassis and the engine worked perfectly today. This has once again done really well. Everyone in the team needed, "said Sascha Bert was happy after the race.
The two races in the FIA GT Championship at Zolder in Belgium did not result very disappointing - and not without reason. Drive through the classification according to the concept of balance of performance must be the Dodge Viper Competition Coupe GT3 with 1,360 kilograms, which is strongly at the expense of the brakes and tires. "We have slipped in the classification in the ADAC GT Masters into a corner where it is very difficult to go with the Dodge Viper Coupe race," said team leader Michael Mintgen. The race at Hockenheim on Saturday showed, however, that the Dodge Viper Competition Coupe GT3 GT3 over the other vehicles in the field is by no means overpowering, even when the vehicle gets a fairer assessment.
Also, the driver of the second of Mintgen motorsport vehicle serviced, the Ginetta G50, Marek Zuchowski and "Don Draper" experienced a very satisfactory weekend. With the seats 24 and 30 respectively, both came to the finish and were in the course of the weekend faster.
