DTM Racing – …now the penny just has to drop!
September 18, 2014
The YACO Racing Team, which is sponsored by PRO-TEC, had conducted a complete overhaul of the AUDI R8 LMS during the winter season and implemented experiences gained during the last year’s racing season. AUDI customer racing representatives were impressed by the team performance and thus the experienced former DTM pilot and AUDI test driver Rahel Frey is going to support the permanent driver Philip Geipel for the season of 2014.
The test drives performed in the beginning were quite promising and proved the implemented changes to be right. This was also reflected in the fact that the team was one of the fastest right from the start. It was realized by the other teams that there is going to be strong competition and pressure increased. In four races the team was hit by three collisions through no fault of their own and thus lost any chance on a top ten positioning.
“The professional working attitude within the small team combined with a distinctive team spirit make me feel very comfortable” Rahel Frey said. “…now the penny just has to drop and the misfortune needs to give way to some luck. Then we will be among the first!”
During the summer break further improvements were implemented on the race car. “We are ready for the second part of the season and we are confident to make it onto the podium” Uwe Geipel said.
Keep on Racing!
We keep our fingers crossed for the second part of the season.
