Rainer Bastuck: „Turbo class vehicles: Their times are the new standard“

21.05.2015: After a year of development work the drivers of the new Division

After a year of development work the drivers of the new Division 1 have shown their potential in the two opening races of season 2015. Last year’s champion Heiko Hammel and newcomer Fredrik Lestrup, whose vehicle’s are both equipped with about 300 HP, were primarily the ones chasing times that were previously cracked only by the tested S2000 vehicles.

The development process of the DTC turbo bolides has reached an entirely new level in season 2015. The relatively new class, which has replaced the formerly dominant 2-litres class from this year onwards, brought change to the starter field due to its fresh appearance and the new performance level.

The permanent comparison with the long-time superior S2000 vehicles is still present. Meanwhile the turbo vehicles did indeed gain ground over the 21-aspirators. “A performance disadvantage, which many have claimed last year, was no longer a topic during the season opening.

We have seen a lap time of 1:39,358 min. by Fredrik Lastrup in a MINI DTC of Team Dombek. This is a classic S2000 time, which most likely will be undercut soon enough”, series manager Rainer Bastuck knows and further adds:

“Regarding the performance, I do see the turbo vehicles having an advantage. Moreover, there are financial benefits: lower purchase price and revision costs that remain manageable due to the frequently employed series production technology.”

After a transitional year, it is now the turbo vehicles’ turn. There are already ten bolides in the new premium class, several more are currently being set up. Especially tuners and professionally working private teams are interested in it.

“Widening the turbo vehicles allows them to also visually take a leap forward. In addition, there is a broad range of models available as almost every enterprise has a compatible model with a 1.6l turbo engine in its product range”, Bastuck sums up.

The next showdown of the turbo class will take place as part of the Blancspain GT Sprint series on June 5-7 in Zolder (Belgien).
