Remse Racing had been working flat out trying to get their machine ready for the 9 lap sprint race. They were having mechanical problems. They changed an engine between qualifying sessions earlier in the day. But they still had a problem after doing this. The pit gate had closed for the “Sprint Race”. All the team needed was another five minutes, and they would have been on the grid for the race, but it was not to be. They would not start the race. A big blow to the team, after so much hard work.
There was to be a good tussle between Janez Remse and Manfred Wechselberger and Kees Endeveld and Jeroen Remme through out the race. This was good for Endeveld/Remme, they enjoyed racing with Remse/Wechselberger, not like the lonely race they had yesterday. However, Remse/Wechselberger were to have some small mechanical problems towards the end of the race which slowed them, letting Endeveld/Remme pass and take ninth place at the end of the race, Remse/Wechselberger took tenth. They were happy, just to get a race and finish after the problems they had throughout the weekend.
Janez Remse and Manfred Wechselberger had a lonely race in seventh place, and this is where they stayed till the end. But the team are happy with the result and they did not have any problems with their machine throughout the race.
Kees Endeveld and Jeroen Remme tried all they could to get up with Remse/Wechselberger for a battle, but Remse/Wechselberger were just too far in front and were faster too. But eighth place for the team is good, they are happy with this.
We have to inform you that there will be a change till end of this season. Joining us will be Austrian passenger Manfred Wechselberger better know as Yeti.
We would like to thank Eamon Mulholland for joining us this year in the world championship. He did an amazing job considering this was his first year in world championship rounds.
