At the moment I am satisfied with the overall result of the team and especially I am happy and proud for the pole position of Tomas Koreny. For tomorrows race, everything is open and all our drivers have the chance to fight for the podium.”, said team principal, Mr. Josef Krenek after qualification.

Drivers words:

Petr Fulin, 2nd place: “Because of the high temperatures, the tires lasted only one hot lap in qualification. At the beginning I had a problem with my power steering, at the end of the qualifying I suffered under the red flag because of the crash from Kris Richard. I really like the circuit and the atmosphere around here is amazing.”

Chirstjohannes Schreiber, 5th place: “Fifth place is not the result I was hoping for, so I can not be satisfied. I think I have a fast car, but today I could not fully exploit its potential. Later I have to work on the data and see what I can do to improve tomorrow.”

Tomas Koreny, 1th place: “I am very happy with the result. In practice I had problems with shifting and even in the qualifying the gearbox made some trouble. In my pole lap I made a small mistake, but fortunately it was still enough for position one. At the beginning I thought that I would be second or third. It’s my first season in the ETCC and I still have a lot to learn, but so far I really am enjoying it and that is good.”
