Siedler on the victory lane for ADM Motorsport again?

Three weeks after his fantastic win on the tricky street circuit of Porto Austrian hotshoe Norbert Siedler is looking forward to the upcoming IFM-Event in Sweden.

"The International Formula Master Series is a perfect addition to my race programme in the Le Mans Series", said the 24-year-old on Wednesday before take-off from Munich Airport, "and I am ready to give my very best again for ADM Motorsport."

Round nine and ten are taking place at the biggest of all Scandinavian tracks, Anderstorp, which is not the newest one anymore but at least promises plenty of overtaking. The former Grand Prix track was built in 1968 and became an extremely popular venue in the 1970s, just as Swede Ronnie Peterson was at the height of his career.

"I have been told that Niki Lauda won the last Grand Prix here in 1978 so it looks like if this is a good territory for Austrians. We will focus on a perfect setup as a compromise of the several medium-fast corners and a very long straight. It will be interesting."

Over ten million people have already tuned in to watch International Formula Master's racing on Eurosport. An incredible success for the brand new series and its promotor Mauro Sipsz.

Live coverage of IFM's race weekend will begin on Eurosport Saturday 28 July at 12.00 p.m. followed by Sunday's coverage on Eurosport 2 starting at 10.15 a.m.
