ADM Motorsport added another point to its championship tally when Norbert Siedler finished seventh in the IFM Sunday race on the challenging street circuit of Pau. His team-mates Michele Caliendo, Frankie Provenzano and Freitas came home in 14th , 15th and 19th place respectively.

Renato Melchioretto (Team Principal): "We can absolutely live with this result, as Norbert had to start from 7th position with the reversed grid rule coming into play. Even if we had a try track today overtaking was once again very risky as we saw in several situations. Our drivers had a relatively incident free Sunday and they all made it to the chequered flag which can never be taken as granted here in Pau. We now move on to Brno, a very different type of racetrack, and we look forward to improving the car a little further."

Norbert Siedler (car # 17, P7): "We leave Pau with valuable championship points and positive feelings for the upcoming races. I can't wait to get into the car again next week when we start our preparations for the 5th and 6th championship round in the Czech Republic. Brno is a track with good memories for me and I hope for some Austrian fans there as it is only one hour by car from Vienna."

Michele Caliendo (car # 22, P14): "I lost some positions after a mistake in the hairpin but apart from that my race performance was ok. Considering my development over the winter I am quite confident and I think it is just a question of time till I can achieve my first championship points. I just have to keep pushing."

Frankie Provenzano (car #21. P15): "I posted the 4th fastest lap in this race which was a real highlight, but the rest of the race weekend was really disappointing. It can only get better."

Octavio Freitas (car # 16, P19): "Today, I only concentrated on myself and tried to avoid any contact with the barriers. The race was not for the nervous. I had some faster cars behind me that touched my rear several times but the only result was that they lost their front wings. Racing in the city is quite a challenge."
