Yesterday the overtake and today the breakaway. James Weiland arrived at the Nürburgring in second place in the general standings of the Coppa Shell but, thanks to his double-win on the German circuit, returns home in first place with a 10-point margin over his season-long rival Ernst Kirchmayr. It should make for an exciting finale.
“I can’t complain about how I conducted the race as the conditions were not the best: it was quite cold and so it was difficult to get the tyres to the right temperature. I risked hitting the barriers but, luckily, I avoided the worst and got back into the swing of things, but I had to remain behind Ingvar Mattsson.”
