During the race on Saturday HB Racing showed what they can do. Florian Spengler and Christopher Zanella put their Lamborghini Huracán GT3 from position 17 to nine. Factory driver Marco Mapelli started from the back of the field and reached p12 with Norbert Siedler.
What an incredible show during the Saturday race at Lausitzring: After Florian Spengler and Marco Mapelli started from p17 and p28, the attack for points started! Already in the first lap the safety car came out. The HB Racing drivers used this chance and improved.
15 minutes into the race, number six had secured position nine. Before the driver change Lamborghini factory driver Marco Mapelli took P14. “I should have overtaken the Audi earlier, then the top 10 would have been possible! The goal for tomorrow is to push for a position in the first three rows of the field. Then we can really show what we can do”, he says motivated.
Christopher Zanella even jumped to p8. The Austrian Team improved their performance even further. “I had a really good start and didn’t get involved in any encounters. Of course there were some tough fights and touching points but luckily without damage. I’m very happy with my performance and excited to have given Christopher the car within the top 10”, says Spengler proud about his race. Christopher Zanella was able to keep that position until the very last second when another car overtook him by a couple of centimeters on the finish line.
“The race was a great show! The pace was good and we secured the fantastic ninth (Florian Spengler/Christopher Zanella) and twelfth position (Marco Mapelli/Norbert Siedler). Now we are focusing on tomorrow and hope to put the cars to the front of the field”, states team boss Andreas Fuchs.
The results is great! The HB Racing Lamborghinis improved by incredible eight and 16 positions. Points for the Austrian Team – this is how we want to proceed.
