Some Racing Success for Ford GT

20/05/2007 First victory for a Ford GT
Once again, at the Bucharest ring, the second FIA GT3 European Championship race of the week-end was undecided until the chequered flag. To claim their first ever victory, Stefan van Campenhoudt and Romain Bera passed through all the potential traps, included difficult weather conditions, with heavy rain. After only four races, the Ford GT has taken its first victory, a great satisfaction for the whole Matech Racing team. As usual under the rain, the Porsche cars were present, despite the tricky conditions. With the nr 5 Trackspeed car second; the nr 1 Tech9 third and the nr 4 Trackspeed fourth, the Porsches managed a great result in this race.



A Great success for Matech Racing

After a first pole position in Silverstone, the Matech Racing Ford GT claimed its first race win in Bucharest, only a few months after the beginning of this project. At the end of another difficult race, Romain Bera and Stefan von Campenhoudt had a perfect strategy, both drivers did not make any mistakes, and even with a flat tyre they managed to cross the line in first place. "This project started four months ago, and we've won today, after only four races. It is fantastic, and we have to give a big thank you to Matech Racing. In a short time, they've done a great job! This victory is important for all of them" declared Stefan van Campenhoudt. After two Safety Car periods, Romain Bera was leading the race, and managed to keep the car on track, in spite of terrible weather conditions. "It was hard to use the power of the car, and I was really concentrating, I did not want to make any mistakes. I was really fighting with the car, and after the race the team told me that I had a flat tyre at the rear" he said.

Second in the first race with Martin Bartek and Thomas Mutsch, first today with Romain Bera and Stefan von Campenhoudt, Matech Racing had a perfect week end, on a track not really suited to this car, as Stefan von Campenhoudt explained: "Our car is longer than the others, and it is quite hard to manage the car around the corners and to keep the pace in this street track. It is really not that easy, so we are even more proud of our result." The team is now extremely motivated for the next round in Monza, and they will work hard in order to be ready to surprise everyone again.
