Müller Magic As Ammermüller Off in Spa Supercup Thriller

1 Mins read

Sven Müller emerged victorious in the first of this weekend’s two Porsche Mobil1 Supercup races at Spa-Francorchamps, but his Lechner Racing Middle East teammate Michael Ammermüller rolled spectacularly out of the race.

It was the latter who was leading from pole position when his car suddenly slowed and veered towards the barriers. The proceeding role over was scary to watch but thankfully the German clambered unhurt from his stricken machine.

Following the safety car necessitated by such a large incident, championship leader Philipp Eng inherited the lead for Team Project 1. Yet, in a most unusual occurrence, the Austrian made a minor mistake mid-way into the race and allowed a bemused Müller to claim a second successive success.

In third was early season star Christopher Zöchling for Fach Auto Tech. Although he benefited from the poor luck of his rivals, Zöchling was more than deserving of his success, as is any driver who is able to tame the fierce Belgian venue.

Eng’s nearest title rival Christian Engelhart finished fifth for MRS-GT Racing, while Britain’s Ben Barker did a great job for MOMO-Megatron Team PARTRAX in sixth. Ditto Martinet by Almeras driver Côme Ledogar, who took fourth at the flag.

After a dramatic race one, Eng seems little disturbed by the new weekend format for the Supercup. From pole position tomorrow, don’t bet against him increasing his championship grip.
