I.S.R. RACING HEADING TO HUNGARORING TO LEAVE ITS MARK IN THE BLANCPAIN GT SERIES SPRINT CUP
22.08.2017 - I.S.R. Racing will get back on track this coming weekend for the penultimate round of the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup 2017, that will take place at the Hungarian circuit Hungaroring, near Budapest.

The Czech outfit has shown a remarkable growth during this season, putting in a bold performance in Zolder last June, as I.S.R. racing claimed a great second place in that occasion. The two Audi R8 LMS run by the team will be driven by the usual driver pairings in Budapest, with Filip Salaquarda (CZ) and Clemens Schmid (AUT) on the n.75 car and Kevin Ceccon (ITA) and Frank Stippler (GER) on the n.74.

On paper, the Hungaroring should suit I.S.R. racing's cars, as its features are similar to those of Zolder. The circuit is relatively fast in the first sector, but a series of chicanes and corners make it difficult to overtake. Starting positions will be crucial and teams will gear up for the challenge in the two free practice sessions.

The racing action in Hungary will get underway on Friday with the two free practice sessions at 10:40 and 14:15 (GMT +2). Qualifying will open the challenge on Saturday at 9:40, while the Qualifying Race will follow at 15:50. The Main Race will get green lights on Sunday afternoon at 14:20, after the warm up held at 09:25.

Eurosport and Motor TV will provide TV coverage in Europe, showing both races live and highlights in some countries. The official web page of the championship www.blancpain-gt-series.com offers live streaming with English and French commentary for the two races and qualifying.

Igor Salaquarda (I.S.R. racing, Team Principal):
"Resuming the season after the summer break is always quite exciting and, the great result scored in Zolder at the end of the first part of the year, gave us a lot of motivation to repeat such a performance in Hungary. Both driver pairings have been strong in the rounds run so far and everyone is craving to get back on track. Hungaroring is a tricky track and the balance of the car must be perfect to get a good speed, especially in the most twisty sector. We are all ready and will try to convert our motivation into a strong result".
