Martin Kuzma, Team Owner:
“Preparing for the race in Oschersleben went smoothly, everyone in the team felt great responsibility and pressure, as we experienced many difficulties in to this EWC season.
Everyone was ready and motivated to 110 percent. The skill plan was not to push hard just race with comfort and with confidence we took overall the 15th place at the starting grid.
We have planned the races in very small details. In the beginning we had a bit of a problem with the tire grip, but I knew that as the air temperature would cool, it would be okay. The goal was to place in the top 6, so the goal was certainly fulfilled. Thanks to our partners and fans for great support!”
