First official title for Black Hawk Racing:
Yesterday was the 12th and final round of the GT Pro Series Season 6 and it took place at Road America.
Before we go through the race, we would like to congratulate Alex Bräutigam for winning this championship. The title was almost certain, but after this race it is official! He showed a strong performance through the whole season and therefore the title is well deserved.
Black Hawk Racing was founded 171 days ago and after this long period, we managed to get our first title! In addition to that, huge congratulations to our Black Hawk Racing Team 1 with Alex Bräutigam and Markus Walter who won the team championship!
Now a short summary of yesterday's race:
James Duku and Bernd Schmidt did a really good job and finished the race on P4 and P6. Both of them confirmed their good performance in the second part of the season and finished the championship on P9 for Bernd and P11 for James!
Our champion Alex struggled a lot with his success ballast, without a chance to get a good position and finished on P10. Martin Swaczyna had a short season debut and couldn't finish the race.
Unfortunately Markus Walter had a DNF as well. He was involved in a crash and decided to park the car into the garage. The consequence of this was, that he lost his 2nd place in the championship and was falling back to P4.
It was a long and hard season for our guys, but it was an absolutely amazing performance with a lot of success. Here are some stats:
8 Pole Positions
5 Fastest Laps
Impressive performance and once again huge congratulations to our champion and to the whole team! Hopefully we will see the team in the GT Pro Series Season 7! Until then good luck for the last races of 2016 in our other series.
