ALL-INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport looks forward excitedly to the start of the FIA GT1 World Championship in Abu Dhabi - Thomas Jager from Chemnitz replaces the France Christophe Bouchut in the team at the prelude

Friedersdorf/Abu Dhabi (rol/ot) Finally the Team ALL.INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport from Friedersdorf (Saxony) is immediately aiming the premiere of the new FIA GT1 World Championship that starts at Friday and Saturday (16th /17th of April) at the new racing track Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi. This is going to be the first two races out of 20 altogether. On Wednesday (14th of April), Marc Basseng (Germany/Leutenbach), Nicky Pastorelli (Netherland/Italy), Dominik Schwager (Germany/Munich) and German Thomas Jager from Chemnitz drove the first laps on the 5,518 Kilometer course in scorching heat. The racing team from Saxony starts with two Lamborghini Murcielago LP670 RS-V with the racing numbers 37 and 38.

"We're aiming immediately on the prelude. In the heat of more than 35 degrees Celsius this is going to be an acid test for humans and materials", what the team leader Rene Munnich is sure of, which is driving this year again in the German and European Rallycross championship. He is showing the same big ambitions with the GT1 world championship. ^AWe have four professional drivers with a big wealth of experience and great results in our team. We don't have to hide between the 24 drivers peloton with a lot of aces. We want to rank in top positions".

At the prelude in Abu Dhabi Thomas Jager (33) - the former Mercedes pilot at the DTM (German Touring car championships) and now ADAC GT Masters driver was champion in the Porsche Carrera Cup in 2009 - replaces the France Christophe Bouchut at ALL.INKL.COM Muennich Motorsport. The 43-year old Bouchut, that has already been FIA GT Champion three times (2000 to 2002), will be missing out on three weekends of this season at the GT1 championship in the team from Saxony because of other commitments.

"That was unfortunately not avoidable", tells team manager Marc Basseng, which is sharing the Lambo number 37 with Bouchut. ^ABut we found a very good alternative in Thomas. We both know each other a long time and will do everything to drive in the front field in Abu Dhabi", underlines the 31-year old.
