Re: #6 GT Hungaroring 3rd February 2013
Unbelievable success for 7UP Racing.
We spend a lot of time on Hungaroring on practice weeks.
Me much more than on other Tracks of this saison.
This Track was very good drivable for us, but Turn NO-1 was very nasty and dangerous at all of the time.
A vew hours before race, my teammate Dark Man and me have a conversation with our Pitcrew for last setups and pitstop strategy
. (oh yes, this guys have crazy ideas)
They told us, to dodge dangerous turn NO-1, we cut the track by making a 5x10 min pitstop strategy.
So our cars would be safe for 5 times.
I did a very good fast lap in Qualy and saved my 2nd position on starting grid, between Reset and NSD.
Dark Man saved his 9th position between LameDuck and CoolDriving.
Out of pit, I drove on 5th place and overtook my Teammate at the end of first lap, could overtake Icke at long straight on 2nd lap, but did a mistake in turn NO-1.
Reset did a mistake in this turn too, so we had a nice side by side fight on this lap
, but he was to fast.
When Icke makes a mistake, I could overtake him and took his 3th position.
On my 4th 10 min Pitstop, I saw Reset by making a 20 min stop and came back on track in front of him and took his 2nd place.
But he drove fast as Hell and don´t made any mistakes
, so I must let him go again and fall back to 3th position.
On last laps the gap to Reset in front of me, and to Icke behind me, was big enough to drive a "little bit" safer.
So I could manage to save my 3th Place at finishing line.
Dark Man completed the success of 7UP Racing.
with his 7th place (congratulations).
I´ve made 10 little mistakes and 4 big mistakes during the race.
btw, after first pit I never saw fast guy NSD again.
To bad, there were only 15 Drivers on this race, and 4 fast guys of them did not finish.
My big Respekt to all of you !
