Kisiel celebrates double victory in Audi Sport TT Cup

On the tradition-steeped Eifel circuit, Kisiel was again not to be beaten. In round one of the weekend, the 21-year-old young talent started the race from position two, but on lap four took the lead that he would not relinquish again. Following an accident on lap eight, the race was stopped but fully classified, as more than 50 percent of the distance had been completed. In Sunday’s race, Kisiel started from the top spot and went on to clinch a lights-to-flag victory. In the race for the remaining podium positions, the crowd witnessed spectacular position battles and premium-class motorsport. Dennis Marschall (D) ultimately prevailed and relegated Loris Hezemans (NL) to third place. The 19-year-old had finished Saturday’s race as the runner-up.

Rolf Michl, Project Leader of the Audi Sport TT Cup, made a positive assessment after the fifth of six race weekends: “The round on Sunday was pure suspense. As a motorsport fan, you can’t expect more than this. Unfortunately, the race on Saturday had to be stopped. Most important, however, is the fact that the two drivers involved in the accident, Christoph Hofbauer and Joonas Lappalainen, did not sustain any serious injuries and were only taken to the hospital for a check-up. On Sunday, they were able to join us in watching round two live at the race track.”
