Race report – Race 1 – Nürburgring

It was time for classic grounds this weekend when the DTM and Scirocco R-cup circus visited Nürburgring. The first race was late in the afternoon on saturday. Just as we stopped our cars on the start grid, the first drips of rain started to come. It wasn’t suppose to rain, so the VW management decided […]

Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup - Nürburgring 2014
Race report – Race 2 – Nürburgring

The second race in Nürburgring was early in the morning, and would be a completely different one from saturday’s first race. Once again I was fighting Seidel. We got great speed and was batteling constantly. I could feel that I had more to give and I was eager to pass Seidel to catch up with […]

Simon at Red Bull Ring
Red Bull Ring race 2 – seasons best performance!

Simon sure did grow some “horns” to second race at Red Bull Ring. Starting at p21 Simon crossed the checkered flag as 13th car, advancing not less than 8 competitors, although briefly being even further up the field. It proved to be a hot race, not only for the thousands of spectators, but also a […]

Race report – Red Bull Ring Race 1

Simon started off Race 1 at P21 on the grid. Although the best time would’ve put him further down the straight Simon said he felt good before the race. The weather didn’t feel quite as good and it was uncertain until the very last minute if it would rain or not. Thunders and rain was […]

Simon went out on the track this morning and pushed it hard. It was a good qualification for Simon who got good lap times and wound up on p21 in both races. The best lap times however, were cancelled because he went a little, little bit out of bounds. The race is aired live at […]

Qualy on Norisring – not as planned

Even though I made some improvements in the qualy and drove consistently on low times it wasn’t quite as good as hoped. The time 1:01:243 puts me on p21, but I feel like it at least should been top 20. The race is on at 16:55. It will be intense, probably with a couple of […]

Simons practice in Norisring
1s from pole at practice in Norisring

We arrived early friday morning to the hotel in Nürnberg. Due to an airport strike we took the car to Nürnberg. A 10 hour trip. Not a perfect preparation for racing, but it mattered not. The day began with a joint track walk together with all the other VW drivers. It’s a tight and fast […]

Improvements and points in Oschersleben

I started quite well and got of the grid just fine, but got the outside track and lost one position on the inside. Determinded to get back I pushed on, but suddenly lost power on the start straight. It felt like someone just shut down the car for about 5s then, after pumping the gas, […]
