Homerace DeWalt Racing brings 12th and 16th place

The Grand Prix of Germany at the Hockenheimring this weekend was the venue for the ninth round of the Porsche Michelin Supercup. DeWalt drivers Patrick Huisman and Alessandro Zampedri started the race from a 7th and 11th position. \

Qualifying

Saturday's qualifying session took place under sunny, dry and warm weatherconditions when the two Porsche GT3R cars entered the track for their \'d3flying laps\'d3. J\'9frgen Alzen, Team Chef at the DeWalt Racing PZRO JAM team was confident that a compettitive gridposition should have been possible: \'d3We changed every single thing on the car that we could change. The car is maybe better than new. At the Spa test last week we found some progress eventhough it is very marginal. \'d3 A 7th place may not look very promising on forehand, but as Patrick said: \'d3I have done a tougher job before and I won here 3 times so I know the track as you might say. Lets see what happens. Some guys who are in from of me are not eligible for points so from that point of view there is a good change to score some points. \'d3 But that was before the race.\

Race

It was probably not the best race of the season this round in Hockenheim. Patrick started good, but couldn't manage to keep his position throughout the race while Alex who started 11th lost one position during the race to 12th.\

Alex: "The setup of the car was quite ok, but at the start already I lost the clutch. While my tires wore out I had to shift gears without a clutch which was very hard. There was no way to be quicker in these conditions.\'d3\

Patrick: "I had a good start and I could overtake Renauer right away. After a few laps Werner and Maassen were actually quicker so I had a hard time to defend my position. When Werner overtook me Maassen came along but Werner couldn't stay in front of me when I overtook him in a great move. From that moment on I couldn't get the pace in my car and ended up 15th. I am looking very much forward to Spa because I love that track.\'d3\
