Albert von Thurn und Taxis / Tomas Enge spooled off a perfect sprint race at the Slovakia Ring on Sunday. The tenth race of the ADAC GT Masters started from the second row for Reiter Engineering squad. Tomas Enge was at the wheel of the SaReNi Camaro GT3 and picked up a place on the start-finish straight in spite of the strong competition.

The Reiter Engineering driver then closely followed the competitor running immediately in front and looked for the ideal place to overtake. In the first corner on lap 4 Enge stayed glued to the rear of the Corvette in front and used the additional momentum from the slipstream to drive around the outside in turn 2 in an impressive move.

Tomas Enge pulled away slightly in the first half of the race and held a solid second place before handing over to Albert von Thurn und Taxis at the mandatory pit stop. Thanks to the team’s slick pit work, von Thurn und Taxis was able to maintain second position. What appeared to be a certain podium finish was thrown into doubt again just before the end of the race.

After a car parked at track side in a dangerous position, the race stewards deployed the safety car, which in turn cut Albert von Thurn und Taxis’ advantage down to nothing. Recovering the vehicle took unusually long, so that the result of the race would be decided in a dash to the flag over one lap. Von Thurn und Taxis kept cool, defended 2nd place and crossed the line effortlessly in this position. After third place at the Red Bull Ring, this is the second podium finish with the Camaro GT3 in the ADAC GT Masters for Tomas Enge, Albert von Thurn und Taxis and Reiter Engineering.

"I simply can’t understand why we were second today," said Team Boss Hans Reiter. "We’ve tested here for a few days earlier in the season and the track didn’t suit us at all. Also, our lap times were never as slow as today. However, it would appear that our competitors had even more problems with the high ambient and track temperatures. Compared to the tests, they lost more time per lap than we did. The key to success today was definitely Tomas’ good start, which gave us a good position from which to build in the race. In any case, we showed today that the result at the Red Bull Ring was not a flash in the pan."

Round 11 and 12 are on the agenda in three weeks at the event at the Nürburgring. Both Saturday’s and Sunday’s races are broadcast live on the German language TV channel Kabel1.
