FULÍN WINS THE EVENT ON SLOVAKIA RING

2013-04-28

However, the latter emerged as the winner of the event by only one point.

Behind the BMW 1-2, the SEAT León of Andreas Pfister took maximum points in the Single-Make Trophy for the second time today by finishing third overall, holding off a determined challenge from Michal Matějovský’s BMW over the final few laps. Once again it was Kevin Krammes who was victorious in Super 1600 while Andrina Gugger was the highest-scoring of the Ladies’ Cup competitors.

There were no repeats of the incident in Race 1 that saw six cars in the gravel at the very first corner. All but one of those cars were able to start Race 2, with the only retirement during the race being that of Igor Skuz, whose SEAT ended up in the gravel at Turn 10 after an incident involving Roland Hertner’s BMW.
