Sports car pilot Stefan Mucke after special adoption at the DTM now at the wheel again in Silverstone on this weekend - "Aiming on points"
Berlin/Silverstone (rol/ot) German Sports car pilot Stefan Mucke is at the wheel again coming weekend (1st /2nd of May). The former DTM driver from Berlin has been the consultant for his father's team Mucke Motorsport last weekend (24th /25th of April) at the season opening of the DTM (German Touring Car Championship), as well as for the DEKRA in the position of a competent guest guide in the paddock. The Berlin starts at the second season event of the FIA GT1 World Championship at Silverstone (England). The Aston Martin works driver will drive a DBR9 again, which cockpit he's sharing with his Dane team colleague Christoffer Nygaard from the Team Young Driver AMR (Paderborn/Copenhagen).
At the GT1 World season opening in Abu Dhabi (17th of April) the 28-year old placed position 4 at the one hour Qualifying Race. He started on the piste Yas Marina from position 20 and gained 12 positions showing a furious catch-up race in the first lap already. After about half an hour he handed the car over on position six to Nygaard, which could gain another two positions. But at the second one hour Championship Race the duo was in misfortune. Already at the first lap Nygaard dropped out after a collision. He had to stable the car and Mucke didn't come to adoption anymore.
"That's been a pity of course, because we could have reached a ranking in points. That's what we're aiming for in Silverstone now", tells Stefan Mucke. "I like this track very much. Driving on this traditional piste I have had a few nice results". Last year the Berlin gained third place and perfected his championship title at the Le Mans Series (LMS). Certainly the course north-easterly of Oxford with now 5,9 Kilometers length looks a bit different. "There's still two-thirds of the old course and a few more curves. I am looking forward to the new sections", tells the Berlin.
