Race Performance and MOMO Megatron are fighting for the top in Austria

18.07.2014: Next weekend the Swiss team Race Performance on the Red Bull Ring starts into the

Next weekend the Swiss team Race Performance on the Red Bull Ring starts into the second half of the season of the European Le Mans Series. Michel Frey and Franck Mailleux, together with partner MOMO Megatron, want to tie to the great performance of the 24 hours race of Le Mans.

On the Formula 1 Circuit in Austria both drivers have the possibility to narrow the scarce gap of only eleven points to the top of the team standings.

“We have had a fantastic week in Le Mans, and in the first half of the race we were able to prove that our pace is really competitive. Unfortunately we run into trouble with the fuel pump after about six hours and had to come into the pit-lane to get it repaired, what cost a lot of time.

Although we saw the chequered flag and finished the race, we were quite disappointed with the result”, concludes Michel Frey after the race classic at the Sarthe. “However, now it’s time to focus on the ELMS and its fiercely contested title fight.

With a top result it could be possible to narrow the gap to the top. We had a quite competitive car in last year’s race in Austria, therefore we are travelling to Spielberg with confidence.”

Franck Mailleux expects a tough battle in the LMP2 classification as well. However, he is looking forwards to the race with the Oreca 03 Judd on the Red Bull Ring. “In Le Mans we could show what we are able to do, now it’s up to us to prove this upwards trend. I am really pleased and I can hardly wait for the ELMS weekend in Spielberg.”

The race with a distance of four hour for Michael Frey and his highly motivated team Race Performance MOMO Megatron starts on Sunday, 14.00 pm. The aim for the team is to succeed in the close battle for the championship.
