We could not say that we did not have enough to do last weekend during the third race of the Porsche Carrera Cup 2004 as well as the first race of the Mini Challenge. We could not say that we did not have enough to do last weekend during the third race of the Porsche Carrera Cup 2004 as well as the first race of the Mini Challenge.

The week before the first race of the Mini Challenge ex- DTC champion Markus Gedlich contacted us in order to find out if we can do together with the Baiersbrunn based team "Top Premium Cars" the preparation of the three Mini Challenge cars for himself, the actor Wolfgang Fierek and Cora Schumacher, the wife of Formula 1 driver Ralf Schumacher. After looking on our race schedule we certainly said yes we will do. So at Lausitzring we had to prepare five cars.

At Lausitzring our Porsche drivers Christopher Brueck and Thomas Riethmueller reached there best results this season so far. After qualifying in 9th position for Christopher and 12th for Thomas both did a no mistake race and finished in the top 10. Christopher reached the chequered as 5th and Thomas as 8th, so we managed to step on 3rd place in the team championship at the moment.

Team owner Sven Schnabl has been quite happy with the result. "a lot of testing we did during the single races shows first results, the performance of the drivers is getting better and better! "

Even with the debut of the first event of the Mini Challenge we could be happy, actor Wolfgang Fierek just finised last in both races, but his lap times improved by 5 seconds. Cora Schumacher finished 18th in the first race and 13th in the second race. Bad luck had Markus Gedlich who in both races had to fight with ABS problems and so just finished 10th and 8th.
