The return of the podium to the "hardest weekend" for our team and our pilot Georgi Donchev. Georgi returned to the Porsche Sports Cup Germany after the Oscarsleben Motorsport Arena this weekend and his teammate Marvin Deinst finished third in his class. In the seventh start of the season, the two athletes managed to compensate for a serious technical problem with the gearbox because Overdrive Racing team (SCHUTZ Motorsport) did not start the second race of the Porsche Sports Cup Series Endurance Series 5d-991 GT3 Cup. "This was our most troublesome weekend since I competed, but I'm glad we managed to get out and we even scored a first-place winner," said our pilot after the final. Because of the bad weather, he and Marvin missed the free practice on Friday, and the next day the car started to run off. The mechanics found a gearbox seal problem, but failed to remove it, only to ensure that the first launch was seamless. Donchev started from sixth position and, despite the damage, managed not to lose any place until the middle of the race when he returned to boxing. We finished fourth in the start and third in the 5d-991 GT3 Cup. Thanks to the third place of this weekend, Georgi Donchev already takes fourth place in the overall standings.
