What the Drivers Said on Saturday at Slovakiaring

7 July 2019

Here's what top drivers from both Saturday's races had to say at the Slovakiaring...

Race 1

1. Jochen Hahn – Team Hahn Racing | IVECO

“I’m very happy because it was a good race and we got pole too like the last two races, so a nice job and good satisfaction. Steffi drove well and I am happy to share the podium with her and Adam too. Tough conditions but nice way to start the weekend here in Slovakia.”

2. Steffi Halm – Team Schwabentruck | IVECO

“I was lucky in the last two laps and I had a gap before because I was unable to push harder so I just tried to make no mistake so Adam could get passed. I positioned my truck on the inside line a lot so that he could not push me too much but I was glad to see the last lap.”

3. Adam Lacko – Buggyra Racing | Freightliner

“I’m very happy with this podium after the bad weekend in Hungary last time we raced. The pace was better and we could attack more but still we need to find some more pace. I was able to pressure Steffi but not quite get passed her, but the points ae nice and we can build on something now.”

Race 2

1. Sascha Lenz – SL Trucksport | MAN

“I’m very happy for my team, my sponsors or for myself. I had a very good start and was second after the first corner. I was at the back of Rene [Reinert] when he made a mistake. I overtook him and I drove my own race from then on. Tomorrow is a new day and we will see what will it bring for us?”

2. Steffi Halm – Team Schwabentruck | IVECO

“I was always to far back to attack [Sascha]. In the second race the points difference between different positions are just one point, so I was just waiting, wondering if he’s going to make a little mistake but I was never in a position to attack. When I was a little bit closer Norbi [Kiss] was coming and I had to fight him. In the end, I’m very happy with second place.”

3. Adam Lacko – Buggyra Racing | Freightliner

“I’m glad that it all ended up so well. I thought the race is going to be a lap longer. If only I had that one more lap, I would have tried something more. In the end, I think we’re all satisfied within the team. I’m glad that I finished the race and collected more valuable points.
