Harzring 9th and 10th races at IDSM 2008


Here is a short report from the IDSM race weekend on the Harzring.

On the Harzring took place on 12/13. July the 9th and 10th races for the IDSM 2008 take place.

Saturday morning didn't go well for our driver Thomas, as he had to change the engine after just a few laps in free practice! The engine block on the Hebo engine had cracked.

He finished just in time for qualifying, which he finished with 5th place out of 19 starters.

On race Sunday Thomas missed the start of the first race a bit, but was able to quickly work his way up to 1th place until he slipped on an oil trail half a lap before the end.
Fortunately, the crash went smoothly and the engine stayed on, so that he could jump up again quickly and cross the finish line in 5th place.

The start of the second race then went very well. Thomas was able to stay in 2th position for the entire race and drive in 4th place just ahead of Ole Wulf at the finish.

With these two good results, Thomas has improved to 102th place in the overall ranking of class 5 with 2 points! (Race results and rating under www.idsm-online.de )

Incidentally, Thomas also drove the 3-hour race on Saturday with a 180 runner in preparation for the 24-hour race in August. Here he was able to take a great 2nd place with his team Torben Heinrich, Philip Hasemann and Thomas Heck!
