Constance in Saturday's race - Mini Mamba on the podium
The nervousness increased immensely this weekend and if you had put a heart rate monitor on the mechanics, the team boss and the drivers, it would have shown immensely increased values. No spin and no failure - that was the motto of these days. Bring the Mini-Mamba safely to the finish and take as many points as possible with you. Snake tamer Luci Trefz was the first driver to get into the AMG. In the starting tumult he was thrown back to rank 20 in the first race. He pushed back to 16th place and handed over to Marcus Paverud, who fought his way up to twelfth place. In the end, the Mini-Mamba-Duo finished second in the PRO/AM ranking and celebrated their first success.
In the sister Mercedes-AMG GT4 Jan Kisiel and Max Koebolt fought for the championship title in the Silver Ranking. Max Koebolt was also taken by surprise by the turmoil at the start and lost three positions at the beginning before he handed over to Kisiel after the half race distance. Kisiel pushed hard and crossed the finish line as ninth overall. After this race they were leading with two points!
With third place to the Championship title - Vice-title in the Silver-ranking!
On Sunday, for the last time in this European GT4 season, it was time for "Gentlemen, start the engines". For the last time the lights switched to green. Now it was all about everything. Marcus Paverud in the yellow-green Mini-Mamba struggled at first. He didn't want to take any chances and he wanted to take points. On twelfth place he handed over to Trefz, who crossed the finish line as eleventh overall and third in the PRO/AM ranking and made the championship complete. Crossing the finish-line was enthusiastically cheered by the team. This season they had worked so hard and fought again and again. A Grand Finale!
Kisiel and Koebolt also fought bravely in the second race and wanted to win the championship title in the Silver Ranking. From 13th place they moved up to seventh place and crossed the finish line just a few seconds behind the new Silver champions. With the same number of points as the other driver-pairing they are ranked first. But when it comes to the number of wins in the season, they end up in runner-up position. Vice-champions after a hard season! They fought hard. Chapeau to both of them!
