The big finale awaits the Czech team HEICO-GRAVITY CHAROUZ this weekend at the German circuit Nürburgring, on which takes place the last two races of the FIA GT3 European Championship. The driver duo Dominik Baumann and Maximilian Buhk are currently leaders in drivers’ overall standings. The Czech team holds the second position.

Dominik Baumann and Maximilian Buhk are heading to the Nürburgring in the role of leaders of the championship. They are 36 points ahead of the other drivers. During the two races, you can score maximum of 50 points, therefore losing the title for our driver duo could only happen when their form would suddenly drop down.

You need to find the perfect balance, and it's not easy. Our goal is to win the title, of course. "

Maximilian Buhk: "We have a clear goal to win the drivers' championship. If we can win among the teams, it is clear that we will try that as well. I will do everything I can, but it will not be easy. There is against us many good drivers. "
