Scherer confident ahead of first race in the USA

26.01.2022: This weekend Fabio Scherer will make his debut with High Class Racing in the IMSA. For the first race, the legendary 24 Hours of Daytona, Scherer will start from the second row of the grid in his class, the LMP2.


This weekend Fabio Scherer will make his debut with High Class Racing in the IMSA. For the first race, the legendary 24 Hours of Daytona, Scherer will start from the second row of the grid in his class, the LMP2.



Fabio Scherer (22) has successfully completed the first week of the 24 Hours of Daytona/Florida with his new team High Class Racing. Four practice sessions, a pre-qualifying session and the qualifying race lasting over one hour and 40 minutes, which decides the starting grid for the 24-hour race next Saturday, are done.



"I am very happy with our performance," said Scherer after finishing fourth in the qualifying race. "The car is very fast. Unfortunately, we had to do a reset during the pit stop. As a result, we lost around 20 seconds. We would have otherwise finished second in our category, LMP2."
 


"I am very happy with our performance. And I am therefore very confident for the race this weekend!"



The Swiss racing driver, who is supported by STOBAG, ATS Banding System and new sponsoring-partner Wexler, completed the qualifying race, in which only two of the four drivers per team are allowed, with his team-mate Dennis Andersen.


Scherer's other teammates for the 24-hour race, Anders Fjordbach and his compatriot Nico Müller, watched the race from the garage. "We have a very strong and almost equal line-up," says Scherer. "I am therefore very confident for the race this weekend."



The start of the 60th edition of the 24 Hours of Daytona will be on Saturday (29 January) at 13:40 local time (19:40 CET). Compared to last year, the race has been moved forward two hours.

21:20 - 23:05 hrs: 2nd free practice session
