Stefan Mucke 2011 at double adoption - FIA GT1 World Championship and Intercontinental Le Mans Cup - The Berlin faces big challenge and good chances.
Berlins 007 in fast mission: German sports car pilot Stefan Mucke is right before a double adoption in this year's motor sports season that will take him all over the globe. The 29 year old Aston Martin works driver will be on track at the FIA GT1 World Championship in the Aston Martin DBR9 like last year for the Team Young Driver AMR (Paderborn). And the Berlin that has been the champion of the Le Mans Series (LMS) in 2009 finds his self back in the cockpit of a LMP1 sports car prototype. In the brand new AMR-One - that's the first completely self-build open sports car prototype of Aston Martin - Stefan Mucke will contest the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup (ILMC) that includes the famous 24 hour race of Le Mans middle of June.
"This season will be very interesting. I see a big challenge for me and the whole team but also good chances to be at the front of the drivers field", tells Stefan Mucke, who will share his cockpits of both cars with his British Aston Martin works driver colleague Darren Turner. "Even if we can't make it to two out of ten racing weekends at the GT1 championship because of schedule overlapping with the ILMC I still think we have good chances to get to the podium in the end."
This season will be very interesting.
The Berlin sees big potential in the new open sports car prototype of Aston Martin, even if they can't start with this car yet at the first ILMC race on the 19th of March at the 12 hours of Sebring/USA. "The car shows a very good first impression, looks quite fast and should defy to the Diesel cars at the 24 hours of Le Mans", thinks Stefan Mucke. "Till then there's still a lot of work to do for all of us." The Berlin is already looking forward to the first adoption in the 540 HP strong AMR-One, which is powered by a 2 Liter six-cylinder turbocharged motor.
Besides his racing adoptions Stefan Mucke wants to be the consultant again this year for the Team Mucke Motorsport and wants to support his father Peter Mucke at his adoptions in the Ford Capri.
