Safenwil (Switzerland), 25th of May 2021
Emil Frey Racing is headed for the second Endurance Race this coming weekend, from the 29th to the 30th of May. This year as well, the infamous 1’000km race of Paul Ricard is set to kick off on Saturday evening and end 6 hours later, at midnight.
Luckily, the night race from the most recent race weekend in Magny-Cours (FR) delivered a lot of data. Since then, the team was able to carefully analyze and turn said data into valuable learnings. The drivers are pumped to take on the six-hour long fight and are ready to take their three Lamborghinis over the finish line as successfully as possible.
The following program will be in place this weekend:
Currently, the Safenwil squad places third in the overall ranking (Sprint- and Endurance Cup). In the Endurance Cup ranking, the team also sits in third place. The goal for Paul Ricard is to score podium finishes in order climb to second or even first place in the overall ranking.
Norbert Siedler, who endured a crash in Magny-Cours, had been able to recover, is back in shape and ready to get back on track for Emil Frey Racing. Therefore, the driver lineup is back to how it was in Monza at the beginning of the year:
At the season kick off and first ever Esports event in Monza, Rougier took home a solid win for Emil Frey Racing, which was rewarded with three valuable points. In Paul Ricard, the Esports Championship is set to resume for its second round.
However, with regards to the virtual race in Paul Ricard, Rougier’s victory comes with a disadvantage: According to the sporting regulations, he will have to race with an additional weight of 30 kilograms. The team is still hoping for excellent results and has high expectations.
The qualifying and the race itself will be streamed live on Youtube.
