With the FIA GT3 European Championship racing at the Czech circuit of Brno this weekend Fischer Racing and their two driver Christoffer Nygaard and Mikko Eskeilinen are looking a brand new challenge.
However, the team, which started their season well at Silverstone earlier this month, are hopeful that the choice to test at the flowing 3.4mile circuit will help them when it come to the race weekend.
“We tested at Brno in March and it went really well“, says Christoffer Nygaard, who will once more perform 'double duty', also racing in the GT1 World Championship for the Fischer run Young Driver AMR team. “I like the track very much and it should also be well suited for our car. We were successful at the first races at Silverstone, so I'm quite confident we can carry this over to Brno.”
“Brno will be a little bit easier for me then Silverstone,” insists Eskeilinen. “At Silverstone the track was new for me as was the championship, also the car was quite new to me. We tested at Brno, so I know the track already and can fully concentrate on my driving and didn't have to learn the track.”
It is unclear whether the weekend will see one, or two, of the team's Ford GTs on track. The opening rounds saw only Nygaard and Eskeilinen, and drivers for a potential second remain unconfirmed ahead of Brno.
The two race for the FIA GT3 European Championship will be shown live on MotorsTV in Europe, and are also available on the series' website www.fiagt3.com.
