Vršecký´s Victorious Fantasy!
The double European Champion celebrated his first victory in a cup race in the role of pilot and constructor in one in Le Mans. Chris Levett ranked seventh!
David started the cup race from the first row following penalisation of the pair Bösiger – Östreich, together with Adam Lacko. However, David only “enjoyed” the second rank during the first series of curves. Then he squeezed his truck along his countryman ´s to take the lead. "When I achieved the quickest lap time in the super field in Jarama last week, I began to suspect closeness to a cup race victory,” said the enthusiastic Vešecký after the race. I knew Nittel was behind me. That dictated my tactics. The tactics was simple: to keep Uwe within a safe distance behind me.”
In the course of the rest of the race David kept a safe advantage of around two seconds over the “destructor” Uwe. And therefore could drive at absolute peace. “Today I returned two years to the past, when in Le Mans I won both cup races and thus made an important step towards defence of my champion title won the year before. Although I cannot think of the champion title this year any more, regarding the past two seasons devoted to development of a new vehicle, I rank this triumph to the most important in my career,” laughed David. “Of course the victory is a present to all that have remained by my side in the hard times all the time until now.”
Chris Levett also fought bravely, ranking seventh and winning the first row in the starting grid of the handicap race. Chris Levett: "I would say this was not bad. Every score point counts."
