BWT Lechner Racing Looking Forward to Zandvoort After Historic Victory
Just less than a week after the impressive one-two victory in the historic 300th race of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup at Spa, BWT Lechner Racing is already looking forward to the upcoming challenge at Zandvoort in the Netherlands. „Of course this great win last weekend at such a historic track under extremely demanding weather conditions was very emotional and extremely important for all of us”, says Lechner Racing Team Principal and CEO Robert Lechner.
“While we very competitive from the start of the season, we had to live with the fact that our results not always reflected that. Now at Spa finally everything came together and we got a well-deserved reward for our hard work and for never giving up in any way. We always believed in our success, in our ability to get back to the the top – and now we did it”, he is still in the mood to celebrate the great achievement. “You can literally feel how much that meant to everybody in the team, to drivers, engineers and mechanics. It was also great to see the positive reactions we got from everywhere within and even without the racing world. So I would like to express a big thank you to all our partners and sponsors – without you this success would not have been possible!”
Spa winner Dylan Pereira and his BWT Lechner Racing teammate Ayhancan Güven, runner-up in the Belgian Ardennes, would love to repeat their great performance of course, being familiar with the track situated in the majestic dunes at the Dutch seaside resort from different races mainly in the German Porsche Carrera Cup. Güven just scored his second win of the 2021 season in this series at Zandvoort. Third BWT-Lechner Racing driver JB Simmenauer and Tio Ellinas from Team Lechner Racing Middle East especially hope for a good qualifying to be able to make even better use of their well-known race pace this time. Nicolas Misslin celebrated his third win in a row after the second Spielberg race and the Hungaroring at Spa, “which of course improved my title chances significantly. Now the aim has to be to continue on this path while not taking too many risks and staying out of any trouble.”
The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup premiere at Zandvoort is a result of the return of Formula 1 to the circuit where it held its last race 36 years ago in 1985, with legend Niki Lauda claiming his final F1-victory. Since then, the track has changed quite a bit, especially by the addition of two banking corners, but has not lost any of its fascination, Looking forward to the special challenge, there is nevertheless one fact that means some relief to everybody, including Lechner Racing Team Manager Michael Schöch. The weather forecast for this weekend predicts no rain at all, “so hopefully we will get away again with not bigger damage to the cars, which will be very important with the final double-header at Monza coming up in already one week´s time.”
