"The life is not Hollywood!" - GU-Racing Team International at Lauitzring in Formula BMW.

Second race-weekend of Formula BMW: At Lausitzring raced Jens Höing (D), Carlos Gaitan (COL), Nikoley Varbitzaliev (BUL) and Max Wissel (D). "The life is not Hollywood" - Jens Höing presented this slogan at his home-race on his Formula BMW. But the slogan does not hit only the result of the Berlin-located. All GU-Racing pilots had trouble at Lausitzring.

The drivers went into the first race from place 8 (Wissel), 12 (Höing), 17 (Varbitzaliev) aund 18 (Gaitan). Wissel and Höing started well and they came back from lap 1 at place 6 and 9. The race runs not very dramatic: Max and Jens couldn't take a profit from fights other drivers, so they hold there positions. Just same laps before the finish both got in trouble because of his rear tyres. "I broke too late and I didn't have the exit-speed when one other driver overtook me finally. Place 7 is not bad and also not good..", said Max to his race. Also Jens had problems with his tyres. He lost speed on the straight and had a collision where he lost 3 places. "I tried to improve my position and I finished 12 now. This is not what I expected."

Better was the race for Varbitzaliev after a good performance. The Bulgarian finished 14. Not better was it for Gaitan: The Colombian who lives in Munich through out his at breaking and he knocked out.

"Worser is possible!" That the results could be even worser showed the performance on Sunday, especially from Max and Jens: Starting from place 12 (Max), 13 (Jens) and 14 (Nikokay) it were Jens and Max who fought at the first laps. So in this time the front-runners could race away. The positions after 8 laps: Max Wissel at P9, Jens Höing at P10, Nikoley Varbitzaliev at P14 and Carlos Gaitan at P16. Jens was in trouble after flying over a curb. He lost time and finished just as 13 finally. Directly behind him Carlos Gaitan saved place 14 after a good race in the last lap. Not good was this last lap for

Max Wissel. He knocked out just some meter before the finish with a dead engine. Nikoley Varbitzaliev finished on position 17 after the 15 laps.

Teammanager Günther Unterreitmeier about the weekend: "I don't want to say something better than it is - so the live is really not Hollywood. We were too slow this weekend with our drivers. The test here before was even better, I will change something in the team because of also Oschersleben wasn't perfect. We will be much more faster at Norisring, you will see."
