Zwart wins season opener
Reigning BOSS GP Champion Klaas Zwart dominated Saturday’s season opener at the Hockenheimring and left his opposition chanceless.
Zwart led an action-packed race from start to finish securing himself the first 25 points.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better start into the new season. Hopefully, it will be dry again tomorrow, because our cars are pretty expensive and I don’t want to end up in the armco”
the Dutchman said.
Austria’s Ingo Gerstl battled his way back from the end of the field to finish runner-up.
“Our qualifying was rubbish, as I didn’t have a clear track. And what’s more, my fastet lap was cancelled. So I had to risk a lot in the race, but it worked out eventually”,
Gerstl was happy, but exhausted.
His fellow-countryman Bernd Herndlhofer completed the podium, while Gary Hauser capped his comeback by winning the Formula Class event.
“I am not entirely happy, as my chances would have been better in rainy conditions. Maybe it will rain again tomorrow”,
On the other hand, Hauser was delighted saying:
“It is great to come back with such a result. I can’t wait to get back into the car and attack again tomorrow.”
