Win equals good championship weekend in Austria

MC5D4895

Fredrik Lestrup left Salzburgring with an increased lead in the ADAC Procar Championship despite suffering a puncture in the second race of the weekend.

At the quick Salzburgring circuit Fredrik started off great with pole position for both races and added points in the championship. He duly went on to win race 1, the sixth victory of the year to add further points in the championship. In the second race Fredrik was in a fight for another victory with eventual winner Milenko Vukovic. But out on the final lap Fredrik suffered a puncture and had to coast the car to the finish line, eventually finishing fourth. Despite the puncture he increased the championship lead from 12 to 20 points with four weekends remaining.

“We came here with a 12 point lead in the championship and left with a 20 point lead so all in all another good weekend,” Fredrik said afterwards. “I had a great fight in the second race with Vukovich so it was a shame I got the puncture. Strangely enough it also cost me a fine to bring the car back over the finish line instead of pitting here in Austria but it is what it is. We collected good points and the new engine worked great so another great effort by the Besaplast Racing team. Now I’m looking forward to the next race at Nürburgring.”

ADAC Procar continues its’ season at Nürburgring August 14th – 16th.
