Sims (GBR). The subsequent miracle on a approach to a start of a WEC
deteriorate is a voluntary during Le Castellet (FRA) on
Three questions for… Martin Tomczyk.
Martin, what are your feelings brazen of a 2018/19 FIA WEC season?
Martin Tomczyk: “For me, it is a good honour to contest in a WEC.
We put a lot of bid into building a new BMW M8 GTE that made
a entrance during Daytona dual weeks ago. The 24-hour marathon showed how
arguable a automobile is. we am unequivocally looking brazen to a new challenge.”
How do we consider we will perform?
Tomczyk: “Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Ford all paint very
clever competition. You can supplement Corvette to that list for a 24 Hours
of Le Mans. We are informed with these manufacturers from other series
and know that they will have rival cars out on a track. we know
a drivers unequivocally good too. They are all unequivocally quick so it will be
anything though easy to make a symbol in a WEC. We are good prepared and
a BMW M8 GTE is a illusory competition car. we also have some great
team-mates alongside me. we am assured that we have a possibility of doing well.”
How many are we looking brazen to continuation racing?
Tomczyk: “After 16 years in a DTM, we am beholden that we now have
a event to combine entirely on continuation racing. we competed
in North America final year, in a IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar
Championship. That was a good knowledge for me. we have also been in
movement a few times during a 24-hour competition on a Nürburgring Nordschleife
– and we unequivocally like this race. we will contest in a Le Mans 24-hour
competition this year, a many critical continuation competition in a world. we am
looking brazen to this new challenge. The tragedy is rising,
generally as we will be adult opposite my closest rivals in Paris. we can
frequency wait for it to get started.”
