FACH AUTO TECH IS READY FOR THE ISLAND

It’s not going to be comfortable at “home of British Motor Racing”. Meteorologists forecast rain for the coming weekend of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. But not only because of the weather, FACH AUTO TECH is preparing meticulously for the traditional race track of Silverstone/England.

Matteo Cairoli (I), #7: After the provisional cancellation of the result at the Red Bull Ring Matteo Cairoli should not become discouraged by this decision. Alex Fach explains: “The point is that the technical scrutineers have adjudged the car too light after the race in Austria. We have appealed. I can’t say more because of the pending proceedings.” The team chief is confident that his protégé gets back his points, but makes little hope for a quick judgment. “I’m afraid that a few weeks will go by, until we know more.”

Philipp Frommenwiler (CH), #6: Philipp Frommenwiler has every reason to be optimistically about the next championship round after the race at Spielberg. The Swiss pushed up his successful course based on a spotless race and a formidable sixth place. Alex Fach: “Philipp performed extremely strong in Austria and moved up into the top flight. This result has been long expected and I think he can do it again at Silverstone.”

The race on the 5.9 kilometres long Silverstone Circuit can be followed live on TV on Eurosport2 and Sky Sport 1 channel or online at racecam.de.
