Great Britain's Adam Carroll goes into the first of two tough weeks of back to back races starting this weekend in Germany. Already on the podium at the Nurburgring earlier in the year for the European round, the German round is at the historic Hockenheim circuit.

The 23 year old from Portadown in Northern Ireland experienced another frustrating weekend at the last round in France after being hit from behind in race 1 and forced to start from the back in race 2. Could it be that the luck travels with him this weekend?

"It certainly didn't travel with me here last year, my engine packed in before the race had even started! This weekend the heat is expected to be pretty unbearable so we also have that to contend with.

"I said before France that we made some good in-roads regarding set-up in our summer test at Paul Ricard. We didn't get an opportunity to try them out last round as I was hit on the first lap, but hopefully this will be the weekend that we see our hard work come to fruition."

WHERE AND WHEN Friday 28 July 1530-1600 GP2 Qualifying Saturday 29 July 1600-1715 Race 1 - Feature Sunday 30 July 1000-1045 Race 2 - Sprint Hockenheimring 2.84 miles (4.57k) Hockeheim is a still a favourite with many drivers, despite it resembling little of the former 'classic' track after safety changes meant dramatic reductions to both the layout, speed and length of the circuit.
