Last week was the first round of the newly founded GT3 Trophy, presented by Simracing United. Let's take a look through the result of this first race.
Fatih Demirci, Ralf Stingl and Thomas Schmitt has started from P5, P7 and P14. The start of the race was the worst case scenario for our team! Ralf was involved in an accident after turn 2 and Thomas after turn 4. Both of them have fallen back to the end of the field! In addition to that, Fatih who had a good start and
was running on 5th place, crashed on the start finish straight into the safety car. He couldn't react to the standing car, crashed massively and had to retire from the race.
Ralf and Thomas tried to fight back and were able to gain position after position with great overtakes. Flying in formation they were able to get back into the top 10 and finished the race on P8 for Ralf and P9 for Thomas. Despite their innocent first lap incidents, they can be really proud of their performance. They have definitely potential for good results, maybe for podium spots in this strong field.
We wish our drivers good luck for the next round on the Slovakia Ring!
