P2 and 3 makes Lechner Team Happy

Where the beautifull track of Monza was the scene for the last race of the season in 2004, this year it is the second last. Next week in Monza the Porsche Michelin Supercup will race at the last event of the season in Belgium. The Lechner racing School teams 1 & 2 were coming to Monza knowing that 2 drivers are still able to take the championship back to Austria after the last race of the season. For Alessandro Zampedri this chance is bigger than for 4 times winner Patrick Huisman, but both are very much dedicated to win and to win the title.

Qualifying

Belgian driver David Saelens put the quickest time on the clocks during Qualifying. Patrick grabbed second, while teammate Alessandro Zampedri put his Porsche GT3 on third position. While the sun was burning at 28 degrees, Zampedri had to see how Patrick Huisman was 2 hundreds of a second faster.

Patrick Huisman (second fastest): "I am very annoyed - some of the backmarkers really don't look in their mirrors. On both sets of tyres I was held up by a slow driver, even though the marshals were frantically waving the blue flags. Something must be done about this. For tomorrow's race it will be absolutely crucial to handle the tyres sensibly. I'm sure those who attack to wildly in the beginning won't see the flag."

Alessandro Zampedri (third fastest): "On my first set of tyres my lap wasn't perfect. So I changed one little thing in the set-up, but then I noticed understeer in Lesmo and Parabolica. An improvement wasn't possible. Still, I'm happy with how things are. My wish for tomorrow: a clean, good, fair race."
