DMV Tourenwagen Challenge, round 5

Oschersleben, 2 August 2009

Tony Ring and Torbjörn Ekstrand

Double treat for Nerorosso, both drivers on the podium! After the successful start with my new team Scuderia NeroRosso I went to Oschersleben with high hopes and I did not get disappointed. New for the race was that I shared the driving duties with Torbjörn Ekstrand and he showed that a couple of years in the super competitive European Ferrari Challenge has done him good. Torbjörn did the first race and impressed with a fighting spirit that in the end was rewarded with a second place. For race two I started in second position and initially the race was rather quiet before the rain started and made the circuit very slippery, especially because everyone was on slick tires. With eight laps to go I made a big mistake and all of a sudden the question was more if I even should make top five. The strange thing was that the more it rained, the better I drove against my competitors and in the end I was by far the quickest o the track and almost passed the eventual winner just before the finish.
The results with two podiums was the perfect result with me still on top of the championship and Torbjörn off to a splendid start in the DMV Tourenwagen Challenge.
