more Alex Job Racing wins
Alex Job Racing drivers keep winning, even when the team isn't on track. Three of the team's four German drivers, who usually drive the McKenna Xybernaut Porsches in the American Le Mans Series, competed in European races last weekend.
Timo Bernhard and Lucas Luhr both drove Porsche 996 GT 3 cars in the 24-hour race on the daunting 25.947-km Nürburgring circuit in Germany. Bernhard and his co-drivers won the A7 class and finished second overall in the H&R Spezialfedern Porsche. Luhr drove two stints for Manthey Racing, but wasn't able to finish the race due to an engine failure.
Bernhard's car lost its power steering early in the race, making the 73-turn Nordschleife course even more challenging. "It's the best track in the world, absolutely. It's amazing to drive," he said. "Without power steering it's very tough, but it was better than I expected. Second overall is good!"
Sascha Maassen joined Freisinger Motorsport for the FIA GT Championship race on the 3.8-km Circuito del Jarama in Spain. He won the N-GT class pole position and co-drove to the class win in a Porsche 996 GT3-R.
