Lechner Racing Porsche Supercup

Solid Weekend for BWT Lechner Racing at Zandvoort

One week after their impressive one-two victory at Spa, BWT Lechner Racing had a solid weekend at the sixth round of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup 2021 at Zandvoort.  The challenging track situated at the seaside in the Dutch dunes saw Ayhancan Güven and Dylan Pereira finishing in P4 and P6 respectively, scoring valuable points for the team again. 

Güven from third on the grid immediately lost one position to Simone Iaquinta,  “who had a superb start, while mine was not perfect. Then I tried to put pressure on him, but he did not make a mistake. But P 4 is not too bad, we still have the final weekend in Monza coming up with two races where a lot can happen with a lot of points to be gained”, the Turkish Porsche junior was not unhappy with  the result. 

His BWT Lechner Racing teammate Dylan Pereira started from P6 and got past championship leader Larry ten Voorde on the first lap, but after nicely defending his position for four laps, he finally had to give in and let the Dutch local hero pass again. “Unfortunately we did not find the perfect harmony in the set-up this weekend. Especially at the beginning of the race, I had too much understeer, so there was not much I could do today towards the front, the main focus had to be to bring home a solid result”, said the 24-year-old from Luxembourg.

Due to the very difficult overtaking situation at Zandvoort, the third BWT Lechner Racing driver JB Simmenauer as well as Tio Ellinas from Team Lechner Racing Middle East could not improve much from their qualifying results and finished in P20 and P17 respectively.

On the contrary Pro-Am driver Nicolas Misslin from Monaco had a perfect weekend: Pole position, race victory and fastest lap in his class, “with a car that was really perfect, big thanks to the team for that!” His fourth victory in a row meant that the Frenchman extended his already comfortable championship lead in the Pro-Am class significantly, “so now it´s just to stay calm and focussed in Monza next weekend, to bring the title home.” 

Lechner Racing Team Manager Michael Schöch was especially pleased by the discipline of his  drivers: “All the cars stayed intact, no damage, nobody took unnecessary risks -  that´s very important with the upcoming double-header at Monza.” 

“Zandvoort was a great event with a fantastic atmosphere, enthusiastic fans – even if the race itself was rather quiet”, Lechner Racing Team Principal Robert Lechner stated. “As I had already expected, due to the characteristics of the track, qualifying, start and the first lap where already decisive, with not too much happening later on. Generally, we can take the weekend as a good basis for a  new attack next weekend in the two final races at Monza, where we are looking forward to a successful end of the season.”
