Plenty of action in the German racing weekend at Red Bull Ring
The Austrian Grand Prix track Red Bull Ring in Spielberg hosted the race meeting of several German championships – ADAC GT Masters, ADAC Formula 4 Championship, ADAC TCR Germany and Porsche Carrera Cup Germany.
We already wrote about Callaway Competition’s sweep in two races of ADAC GT Masters, now we’ll take a look at the rest of a programme.
Thomas Preining, the 19-year-old Porsche Junior from Austria, celebrated two wins in Porsche Carrera Cup Germany on his home track. In both races, he defeated Lechner Racing teammate Michael Ammermüller.
Larry ten Voorde (Team Deutsche Post by Project 1) finished in the third place in both races. Thirty-five drivers participated in two races.
The next round of the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany is scheduled for August 3-5 at Nürburgring Sprint circuit.
Enzo Fittipaldi, the 16-year-old grandson of F1 champion Emerson Fittipaldi, triumphed in the first race in which he started from pole in the #74 Prema Theodore Racing’s car. It was his maiden ADAC F4 victory. He shared a podium with Van Amersfoort Racing’s Frederik Vesti and Liam Lawson.
In the second race, Fittipaldi was on the pole again but victory went to Lirim Zendeli (US Racing – CHRS). Fittipaldi and Mick Wishofer joined him on a podium.
