What the drivers said on Sunday at Autodrom Most

What the drivers said on Sunday at Autodrom Most

Race 3

1st Jochen Hahn – Team Hahn Racing | IVECO

"We did a lot of testing here at Autodrom Most in dry conditions and we love the circuit here and I can drive around here with my eyes closed, when it’s dry. I knew that when I’m in front, I can handle it and win the race... and I did just that, so I’m very happy.

We’re looking forward to Race 3 now and I hope Steffi [Halm] can come forward and we can both get a good result for IVECO."

2nd Adam Lacko – Buggyra International Racing System | Freightliner

"I had a really good start but Jochen has a stronger engine and there was nothing I could do on the straight. After, we touched a little bit with Sascha [Lenz] going into the chicane but it wasn’t anything major. I’m happy with another podium finish."

3rd Sascha Lenz – SL Trucksport | MAN

"I think so far it’s a very good weekend for us. In this race, I had a really good start and I could overtake Adam, but going into the following corner Adam had the better line and a better traction as well and managed to repass me. All in all, it was a very good race and the truck is beautiful. We’re very happy with third position."

Race 4

1st René Reinert – Reinert Racing | MAN

"It was a good race. I had a little bit of luck at the start and going into the first corner and I gained a place. Then I had José Rodrigues in front of me and we had a good fight for two laps, then I over took him and all I had to do was not to make any mistakes. I tried to open up a gap but Norbi [Kiss] is a very good driver and he closed up the gap. The last to laps he was directly behind me and this time a had a bit more luck than yesterday and finished first."

2nd Norbert Kiss – Team Tankpool24 Racing | Mercedes-Benz

"It’s good to be back on the podium but it’s again the reversed grid race which is not the aim. We lost out on the podium in the first race today, which would have been much better. I tried to maximise the points in the second one.

Few people came together going into the first chicane, so I could overtake a couple and I went side by side with Shane [Brereton]. He pushed me a little off the circuit, but I couldn’t break on the wet grass so I didn’t want to give up and wanted to stay on the circuit, which I did, so we came together a little bit. He went straight and I could keep it on the circuit. Then I was very close to René. He allowed me to go very, very close but just not close enough."

3rd José Rodrigues – Reboconort | MAN

"I’m very happy and very proud to finish on the podium again. Now I’m going to finish the championship, contesting rounds at Zolder, Le Mans and Jarama. Hopefully, it’s not my last podium this season."
