What the drivers said on Sunday at Misano

 

Race 3

Adam Lacko – Buggyra International Racing System |Freightliner

"Today’s first race was more comfortable than yesterday’s one, because I had a bigger gap over Norbi [Kiss]. I didn’t have a problem with brake temperature and nothing else really. It was a very nice and clean race for me and I’m delighted with the first position again and really pleased for my team."

Norbert Kiss – Tankpool24 Racing | Mercedes-Benz

"Earlier in qualifying I wasn’t as fast as yesterday, so I was only able to start third. But I had a good start. Actually for quite a long time I haven’t had such a good start so it was great, therefore I could follow Adam [Lacko] very closely and overtake Jochen [Hahn] through turns four and five. I could feel that I’m faster than Jochen, but not as fast as Adam. I couldn’t really keep up with him today"

Antonio Albacete - Truck Sport Lutz Bernau | MAN

"It was an easy race for me. I was behind Jochen [Hahn], but he had a problem. I was a little bit slower than these two guys in front of me. I managed to keep Steffi behind, she was really fast and really good, but at the end we’ve got the podium, so I’m very happy for the whole team."

Race 4

Adam Lacko – Buggyra International Racing System|Freightliner

"It’s a really nice weekend for me and for my team, because we won three races and were quickest in both Super Pole sessions. Also, it’s very sunny and very hot and I’m very happy for all the fans, because the races are for them and they have fun watching us entertain."

Steffi Halm – Reinert Racing | MAN

"It was a really tough race straight from the beginning. Sascha [Lenz] spun, so I had to take evasive action and that was when Adam [Lacko] and Norbi [Kiss] and also Gerd [Körber] got close and at the front we got held back. For the next 10 or 12 laps and I knew that he’s faster here, he kept showing that to me all the time, so in the end it was a really, really nice race for me. It was not easy to finish second, but at the end the whole weekend was perfect for us and I’m happy to be here. Hopefully I can come back next time."

Norbert Kiss – Tankpool24 Racing | Mercedes-Benz

"I’m very happy to finish four times on the podium, even though one was taken away from me. It all looks good in terms of the championship. However I’m mostly happy about the performance and that we could do so well over the course of the whole weekend, we could go so fast and be so close to the top guys.

“The last race was very exciting and the fight was hard, as it always is with the reversed grid races. At the beginning I was quite lucky, as I could go after third place very fast, but then I ended up third with two different people in front of me. Later I was a little bit unlucky when it came to the fight with Adam [Lacko] and with Steffi [Halm], but still, third is very good."
