Stuck / Stuck are the race one winners

A successful premiere. The KTM X-BOW Cup powered by Michelin had a promising debut at the fourth VLN race of the season. Three teams of Isert-Motorsport had submitted their entries for the race over four hours. The driver teams of Johannes Stuck / Ferdinand Stuck as well as Arne Hoffmeister / Fredy Barth and Nils Jung / Florian Wolf achieved 26th, 30th and 55th start positions respectively in the qualifying. The Stuck brothers finally won the class and became 21st overall in the starting field which comprised 144 cars. Jung and Wolf finished in a surprising 27th place. At the race finish, the two sons of racing legend and DMSB President Hans-Joachim Stuck had an advance of 4:26.812 minutes before the second-placed Jung and Wolf.

Hoffmeister and Barth in contrast were not lucky as they had to retire already in the first lap due to an accident. “Short before the section ‘Klostertal’ I suddenly lost control of the car, the track may have been wet there. Moreover, I unfortunately crashed into a Porsche during this manoeuvre, sorry once again for this, but I was just a passenger in my car. From the technical point of view, I could have continued without problems. But some bodywork parts were so loose that it would simply have been too dangerous”, said Barth.
