iRacing, 2010S4. Roland Ehnström rules in "The Skippy"

 

DMSv Skip Barber 2000

15 wins in 21 races is what DMSv star Roland Ehnström racked up on his way to the double crown in Skip Barber single seater racing. Roland clinched the general championship as well as the JWH championships in grand style. Add to that impressive results by Fredrik Tackman (10th) and Björn Elofsson (27th) out of 2518 drivers it's understandable why "the skippy" is a popular car at DMSv HQ!


DMSv Star Mazda
Moving up in the series to the faster Star Mazda Roland Ehnström again made it to the podium but this time in second place. What makes this even more impressive is that Roland only entered eight out of twelve rounds! Björn Elofsson again made a strong showing with a final 79th place out of 1916 racers.


DMSv Chevrolet Silverado NASCAR Truck
No final podiums where achieved in the trucks but DMSv managed to score race wins as well as podiumpositions in the severely fought Nascar Class C series.
Best of the DMSv boys was once again Roland Ehnström with a 17th with Fredrik Tackman 65th out of 3318 racers!

 Now we will rest and play for a week before it all begins again. 2011 Season 1. Perhaps NASCAR A and F1 is in the cards...

 

National Historic GT- Roger Wennström champion again!

One of the the most difficult series at SSR involves FIA App K aka "Historic" cars. Weak chassis, poor brakes, and tyres without grip requires exceptional skills! For the second time in a row Roger Wennstrom secured the title. Great rumble, great results!




F1BB, Johan Pesula F1 Evolution Champion 2010! 

In a hard fought championship DMSv manage to take two podium positions where
Johan Pesula got to clime all the way to the top with teammate Christian Waltgård as
second runner up!

 

Joining the season way after the mid-season mark Thomas Brevitz still managed to 
secure a top-ten overall following a string of top results ending up 9thin the final
standings.

We are looking forward to a fun 2011 single seater season! 

 

iRacing, Roland Ehnström is Champions! 

Yes, I know its not right to say "Roland Ehnström is Champions" but normal rules don't
apply when you put Roland Ehnström and simracing in the same sentence. In his rookie
season in iRacing Roland didn't win a championship. He won three! And not easy ones
at that... Magic.

First he crushed the Aussies at their own game winning the thundering V8s winning 14
out of 14 races. At the same time he also raced, and won, one of the biggest road racing
series, Skip Barber single seaters.  And on-the-fly he also clinched the Falcon time-trial
championship!

We are all looking forward to see what Roland can do in future PRO and WC events. Because
there is no doubt in my mind there is where Roland is headed. And not only as a participant.

On a side note we at DMSv management are very happy that Roland will have support in
PRO/WC by one of the premier teams in iRacing, Orion Racing! 

 

SSR GT Endurance Season 12

A little more than half of the season has been completed and it hasn't been a complete
success.Torbjörn Lindau has been a consistent front runner but will miss Spa as well as
Monza. He is currently in the top five and should still have a shot on a good finish.
Last season runner up, Roger Wennström, has had a hard time finding his rhythm but
overcame some of his bad luck winning the GT1 class in he loooong 2.4h race of Spa.
We are all hoping that this great result is proof that his mojo is back. Robert Öström
has not been able to participate in all of the events but proved his speed taking a
podium finish in the prototyped at Watkins Glen.

Keep fighting, luck will change!

 

SSR Historic Season 9

As usual the battle for the crown in historic racing is fierce! Reigning champion DMSvs own Roger
Wennstrom is in a slender one point lead following the Albi weekend. His biggest competitor this
season is Tommy Emanuelsson and odds are that the championship will be decided with one of
these two on top. But everything is still up for grabs considering the handicap system that is in
place in this league!  

Our other Historic hero, Cristian Waltgård, has produced great results, especially in the Swedish
rounds at Linköping and Kinnekulle. Missing out on races as well as an early DNF at Mo i Rana has
placed Waltgård outside the top ten but Backstig, Ershede and Härnvi are still within reach.

Roger, we are all cheering for you! 

 

What happened to DMSv?

After winning pretty much everything we entered in the spring season there were a lot of
soul searching in the DMSv camp. Do we want more of the same? How can we top this?
Where to go from here?

Well, we went all over the place! First we decided to move away from Race07/Evo/RaceOn
based sims.  It was a clear case of "been there, done that" as well as a genuine tiredness of
quirks, bugs etc with the platform. If that move is gutsy or plain stupid coming from probably
the most successful Race07 team in Europe only time will tell. 

Leaving Simracing Team Challenge meant that most of the team were without a ride so we
decided to cross the pond to America and iRacing (and not entirely without success as
another story will tell...). Another big effort from the team is Endurance and FIA Historic
racing with Swedish Simracers and single seaters over at F1BB.

Follow us in iRacing, GTR2 Endurance, Historic racing, F1 and much more!

 

Best season ever!

With the spring season of 2010 over, it’s time to reflect on the best season of Danielsson
Motorsport Virtual so far. The results have exceeded all expectations with a huge number
of race wins, podium positions and championship wins.

Not that bad, ey..?!

DMSv whishes everyone a long relaxing summer in preparation for the fall season! 

 

Simracing Team Challenge Blue Cup 2010- The fat lady sang at last! DMSv1 crowned champions, DMSv2 on the podium!

 

The long and difficult spring season in the Simracing Team Challenge is over and DMSv has come out on top. WAY on top! DMSv1 completed the last race under strict order to "Bring the cars home. No heroics" and that was exactly what they did!

The championship winning team: Roland Ehnström, Fredrik Tackman, Torbjörn Lindau, Ludde Andersson, Tony Gunnarsson, Roger Wennström & Ola Garmer

But it doesn't end there!

DMSv2 made a fantastic last couple of races surpassing TBR in the final standings to put the second team on the third step on the podium! This means that DMSv2 managed to beat 8 out of 9 "first ranked" teams in the most prestigious team championship in Europe. Fantastic!

The 3rd place team: John Westerlund, Peter Kull, Johan Pesula, Robin Johansson, Thomas Brevitz, Christian Waltgård, Peter Melin, Robert Öström

It remains to be seen if we will be back after the summer break to defend our crown as  possible changes to the format may make it impossible for us to participate. Time will tell...

 

Simracing Team Challenge Round9 - all four cars top8 with Roland as King of Spa!

Difficult conditions, rain and sun. Add Spa and there can only be one outcome. Roland Ehnström. For the 14th time in a row in GT cars. Torbjörn Lindau finished 5th in the second DMSv Ford only offering RPM a minuscule chance of stealing the championship trophy away at LeMans. But the champagne is still unpacked in the basement because it can still go sour.. remember last season anyone..?  Great results form DMSvII (Robin Johansson, 4th and Christian Waltgård, 8th) put DMSvII in striking distance of a total podium as well.

Simracing Team Challenge Round7 - Wow!

An administrative penalty against DMSv forced all four cars to start at the back of the grid following a ban on qualifying. The winner of the race was Dragos Haba of RPM but the stars where the DMSv lineup. Roland Ehström made his way to 2nd(!), Ludde Andersson 4tth(!), Johan Pesula 5th(!) and Peter Kull 8th(!). All this on a tight Canadian street circuit. This is nothing short of amazing!.

On another note it was really great to see that the server problems that has plagued this STC season finally solved. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it wasn't temporary when racing starts again on thursday.

RDTCC Round 5 - Barcelona 

Ever raced the GP track in Barcelona? Well, its big. And long. And has a strange chicane near the end. Perhaps its not the best track to race the slow-ish WTCC-cars on but boy does it ever give close racing. In division 1 RPM took their second win when Rami Kaukula and Marcin Skrzypczak made it 1-3 for the team. But more importantly from our point of view was that in between the RPM twins was championship leader Roland Ehnström securing his fifth podium out of five races.  Also in division 1 Fredrik Tackman suffered in qualifying but drove a great race to finish titth while Rikard Javanainen finished 13 th. In divistion 2 Rickard Trange climbet thru the field from an 18th qualifying position to a final 10tj place. In division 3 John Westerlund finished 15th after early problems forced him to make an early pitstop for repairs and Robert Öström finished 18th. DMSv was represented in all divisions as Ludde Andersson had been relegated to division 4 from missing the last few races. Ludde in division 4? Well that could only yield one result.. Division victory by almost a minute..

RDTCC Round 4 - One-two overall after Donnington

Is it dry? Or wet? Or drying? Or raining? Track conditions were difficult when RDTCC visited England on Sunday night. Division 1 had a new winner for the first time this season when Roland Ehnström had to settle for the runner up spot when RPMs Marcin Skrzypczak took the checkered flag first. But it still was a good day for over all as Roland maintaind the championship lead and Fredrik Tackman with a good fifth place finished climbed to a shared second place in the overall standings. The Rickards, also in division1, Trange and Javanainen barely made it to the race but failed to register a qualifying time. They managed 21st and 15th respectively. Team Manager John Westerlund made his debut in touringcars joining the championship for the fourth round and placed his borrowed BMW on the podium with a 3rd in division4. Last man from DMSv to compete was Robert Öström who scored a 7th place in Division4.  Ludde Andersson was unavailable to race this round.

Fredrik Tackman rounded out the podium in third climbing to third overall. Rickard Javanainen won division 2 with Rickard Trange in 5th.

Simracing Team Challenge Round5 -Race cancelled

Due to server failure round 5 of the STC had to be scrapped. A new date is not yet determined.

National Historic GT- Wennström on top !

Say "Mount Panorama" or "Bathurst" to a true racer and a chill raises along the spine. The long straits and terrifying corkscrews was the venue for last nights race in SSR Historic GT S8. DMSv driver Roger Wennström, in a Ferrari 250, best managed the difficult track to take his third win this season solidifying his lead in the championship.  Christian Waltgård, who always is happy when driving an Alfa Romeo selected the miniscule 1300 GTA Bertone coupe and finished the race in 13th, Christian is currently 12th in the championship.



Simracing Team Challenge Round5 - Ovalracin', heck no!

American flavored racing is next for the teams of STC Blue Cup 2010. Two turns and one strait of the classic oval is used together with some fiddely bits on the infield. A tricky chicane along the strait has been augmented with killer curbs so expect some cars to scratch the roof on that one.. This is probably not a great course for us especially for the speed-challenged Fords...

RDTCC Round 2- Roland, the king of Spa!

Spa in the rain? Well, in the in-team betting pool the odds on Roland Ehnström winning barely passed money-back. After 12 consecutive GT-car wins on Spa confidence was high in the DMSv camp going in to the second round of the 4th international touring car championship hosted by RaceDepartment. Roland managed to convert the pressure to a race winning pace. Brilliant!



Also in division 1 Fredrik Tackman finished 9th. Richard Trange and Ludde Andersson had been relegated to div2 and div3 respectively by missiong out on round 1. Trange finshed 18th while Ludde Andersson won division 3 advancing him to div2 for next round. Rickard Javanainen was off racing for real and missed this round.

Simracing Team Challenge Round4 - Japan was tough!

The fourth round of the STC was a difficult challenge since the track wasn't suited for the mammuth Fords of DMSv I. Qualifying and the race was dominated by the nimble midget cars of Black Visor Motorsports (Ultima) and the Marcos of RPM. Ludde Andersson and Fredrik Tackman did a stellar job maintaining our championship lead and continuing our podium streak by finishing 3rd and 8th respectively. In DMSv II team junior Robin Johansson drove a fantastic race that despite two stops gave him a 6th place finish. Less said about Team Manager Westerlunds race the better... Well at least the combined score of Johansson/Westerlund was enough to stay in fifth overall. .

Roland Ehnström got a perfect start to the 4th international touring car championship hosted by RaceDepartment that took place sunday night.



Fredrik Tackman finished 4th with Rickard Javanainen in 12th. Richard Trange and Ludde Andersson both were unable to attend the race.

Round 2 of RDTCC will take place Aprill 18 at Spa Francorchamps. The meteriologists are promising rain...

 

 

Simracing Team Challenge Round3 - Another one for DMSv!

The third race is now in the books and DMSv once again had a great trace when Roland Ehnström once again brought the Ford home for a win! That makes it Rolands second race win in a row. Fantastic! Torbjörn Lindau got bumped early on losing momentum and positions but managed to battle his way back up the order to en the race in 6th. The boys in red extended the championship lead over RPM to 18 points. In the green camp spirits were a bil lower after the race as a network outage at one of swedens broad band suppliers, Bredband2, ment that not only were the regular race engineers ofline but also debutant driver Christian Waltgård was disconneted durin warmup. Johan Pesula in the lone BMW Z4 ended the race in 11th but that sent DMSvII from 3rd to 5th in the general classifications.

Simracing Team Challenge Round2 - Perfect score at Algarve!

Roland Ehnstrom and Ludde Andersson collected maximum points available in the second race of the season. With Roland winning the race and Ludde finishing second.
In the pre race preparations Ludde has showed good pace and put some pressure on Roland. In qualiy Ludde put together a quick lap that put him in pole position. Roland was driving on the safe side during qualifying and that did cost him some positions on the grid. Quote from Roland,

“I was just too nervous and too afraid to get a cut-track penalty in T1, so I lost quite a lot of time there driving way too conservatively, and then later in the lap I again braked too early for a bend because I was overly nervous, and this caused me to turn in too early, hit the apex too early and run out of road on the exit, touching the gravel and losing a lot of speed. In the end my time was over 1 second slower than my personal best, and I was very disappoited with myself.”

No question that Roland is one of the greatest simracing drivers, from third position on the grid he manage to get passed the two cars in front, get the fastest lap of the race and taking home the victory for the team..

algarve 


The rookie Robin Johansson in the DMSv BMW Z4 started from 4th position and managed to outpace his teamie Peter Kull in the race. Peter had an incident in the beginning of the race. Qoute from Peter,

“As always for me it’s key to stay out of trouble in the beginning of an endurance race but unfortunately Johannes Norberg in the Ultima was of a different opinion and hit me from behind on lap 3 and that put me down to 18th position.”

Robin finished in 8th position in his first endurance race and the senior, in the “green” team, Peter finishing in 10th position.

SSR GTR2  Round 4 - Wennström on a roll!

Up-down-up-down-right-left. Add rain. Welcome to the fourth round of the SSR GTR2 endurance race at Bathurst. Put Roger Wennström behind the wheel of a Porsche and it summs up to Victory in division 1! Teammate Björn Elofsson took pole, his first for the season, and finished the race a strong sixth. Robert Öström suffered an early crash after qualifying in a strong 3rd in division 2 while Jonas Lindberg managed to wrestle his TVR thru the rain to a nice 4th place finish.  

International touring cars - RDTCC - End of qualifying

Sunday night marked the end of qualifying for Racedepartments fourth installment of a touring car championship. The 100 fastest touringcar drivers qualified to four divisions. DMSv will be represented by five drivers who all qualified in division 1. Fastest qualifier was DMS 2009 JTCC driver Rickard Javanainen ahead of his DMS 2009 JTCC teammate Richard Trange. They are followed closely behind by reigning V-WTCC champion Roland Ehnström, Ludde Andersson and Fredrik Tackman. The season till take off Aprill 11th.

 

Simracing Team Challenge Round1 - Questions! And answers?

With the first round of the STC in the bag a few questions have been answered and some more remains. On a good note the cars were competitive, everthing worked out on the technical side and overall the results were good. Ludde Andersson made his debut with a solid third after qualifying second. Torbjörn Lindau was delayed in the pits for non technical reasons closing out the top five. Nothing could be done about Vincent Staal who took defending champions DHR SimCrafts first win for the season. In the championship standing Roaring Pipes Maniacs, helped by bonus points for pole and fastest race lap by Dragos Haba, took the lead followed by the two DMSv teams. 

In the BMWs Johan Pesula bettered his qualifying position by seven bringing the car home in 7th place. John Westerlund was hit from behind on the first lap having to rejoin the race dead last. Great work from the race engineers saved some of his day finishing in 11h.

So, whats unclear? Tires for one.. How will the different compounds last during different conditions? Telemetry is another. With the demise of some crucial software we need to strengthen our efforts in finding a working solution for drivers on W7-64. Not having live telemetry on the drivers forces the race engineers to guess and that is not a winning strategy in the long run.

Testing has already started in earnest at the undulated track at Algarve where race operations will commence on the 25th of march. See you all there!

Simracing Team Challenge Round1 - Who's who and what's what?

It's time for the STC Blue Cup 2010 to start at the desert track in Bahrain. Things are quite open as car selection for the season was in reverse championship order and no one is really sure what this will mean in the race. At least we can look forward to great battles and hopefully a close, fun championship.

DMSv will take to the track in the red-white-black Ford GT with Torbjörn Lindau and series rookie Ludde Andersson while DMSv II in the green-white-black BMW Z4 GT3'a will field John Westerlund and Johan Pesula.

Wennström wins again !

DMSv driver Roger Wennström took his and the teams second win for the season driving the Ford Falcon in a field full of Alfa GTAs!  Roger is leading the championship by 12 points coming up to the season half way point. Christian Waltgård is currently tied for 11th



Busy times at DMSv!

There is not a slow moment in the DMSv organisation at the moment! While the cars for STC are being prepared for the upcoming 2010 Blue Cup (more about that in a moment) racing has commenced in ernest in the Swedish Simracing League  in both GTR2 and Historic Racing.

Historic racing (GTR2 P&G)
After four races in the historic cars Roger Wennström is in 2nd place overall with 1,4,2,10 winning the first race in the great Porsche 911RSR IROC. Christian Waltgård is 12th in the standings.

National endurance (GTR2)
The GTR2 season started with "The elephant trophy @ Kyalami" and Björn Elofsson immediately placed DMSv on the division1 podium with a nice 2nd place. The GTR2 drivers are currently on the third leg of "The Aussie Walkabout" with races at Hidden Walley, Oran Park and Bathurst. Australia has been good to DMSv so far with Roger Wennström winning the latest race at Oran Park. Roger Wennström is currently 2nd overall with teammate Björn Elofsson in 3rd. In division 2 Jonas Lindberg has made a comeback to simracing after scheduling conflicts robbed him om the last two seasons. And he has made the best of it. Three races, three podiums has put him first in the division. Robert Öström after missing one race is in 11th in the standings.

International Touring Cars (Race07)
For the first time DMSv has gotten really into touring cars with the upcoming season at Racedepartment. Qualifying has turned into a great fight between the DMS JTCC boys in Volvo C40 STCC and the DMSv endurance crew in the BMW E90s. As of this moment DMSv is 1st) Rickard Javanainen, Volvo 2nd) Roland Ehnström, BMW 3rd) Ludde Andersson, BMW 5th) Rikard Trange, Volvo 11th) Fredrick Tackman, BMW. Qualifying ends in about one week but so far so good!

International endurance (GTR Evolution)
The STC season is beginning in about a week at the F1 circuit in Bahrain and DMSv has been really busy with car selection and tuning. We are trying to better last seasons 2nd (DMSv) and 5th (DMSv II) overall and our trackweapons will be the Ford GT and BMW Z4. Keep your fingers crossed!

 
DMSv test day at our home track Mantorp Park Raceway

  

 

 

DMSv licensed for STC 2010!

DMSv have been granted licenses for DMSv I and DMSv II for 2010. We are looking forward to better our 2nd place overall in the spring Blue Cup!

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

To all our friends in real and simulated racing we wish you a great holliday season!
See you back on the tracks in 2010!

 

Simracing Team Challenge 2009 Black Cup - Close, but no cigar...!

The challenge was over when the starter released the field in the final round of the simracing team challenge last thursdag. Both front row qualifiers, Dragos Haba (RPM) and Fredrik Tackman (DMSv) as well as John westerlund (DMSv II) had been given wrong tires by GTRE forcing early extra pitstops.

Simracing Team Challenge Round8 - It's getting closer!

The DMS home track of Mantorp Park was not available for the8th round of the Simracing Team Challenge so the race was moved to the former F1 track at Anderstorp. The team had spent a lot of time at the track and spirits were high. Our testing showed early on that the Corvette was the car to beat but Roland Ehnström and Torbjörn Lindau still had the pace for top positions.
 Anderstorp
Roland qualified 2nd and was the quickest car on the track in the wet conditions but an attempt to pass the leading DHR Corvette cost dearly. Roland made a fantastic recovery to bring the car home in 2nd place behind the DHR Corvette of Vincent Staal. In fact all top six positions were filled with DHR and DMS cars with Torbjörn Lindau 5th and John Westerlund 6th. Peter Kull finshed 11th.
 
It's still close at the top of the podium and everything is still up for grabs!

Simracing Team Challenge Round7 - Roland did it again!

The DMSv aces Roland Ehnström and Fredrik Tackman took two great podium finishes when the 7th round of the STC brought the series to Italy and the track at Mugello. The 1-3 finish combined with points for pole and fastest race lap extended our lead in the championship.
 Spa
Johan Pesula had to fill in at the last minute when computer problems plagued the DMSv II Corvette of Thomas Brevitz who as a secret weapon had been consistently fastest of the green vettes during  all pre race preparations. Giving a stellar performance Johan gave the team a top 10 finish. John Westerlund suffered from miss communications with the pit crew who sent him out on rain tires after the pit stop as well as gearbox problems ending in a disappointing 20th place.
 
It's still close at the top of the podium and everything is still up for grabs!

Simracing Team Challenge Round6 - Back on top!

The 6th round of The STC took place at the ever spectacular Spa Francorshamps track in Belgium. DMSv star driver Roland Ehnström dominated the event in spectacular fashion. Pole position by 1.3 seconds, fastest race lap by more than one second and a win where no one even was close! In short the perfect race! The second DMSv BMW was driven by Tony Gunnarsson to a very solid 8th position taking back the championship lead from DHR GP who had it on loan for a week.
 Spa
Johan Pesula and Peter Melin brought the DMSv II Corvettes home in 12th and 13th position respectively. Good to have all four cars crossing the finish line again!

Simracing Team Challenge Round5!

The STC crews stayed in France for the 5th round of The Simracing Team Challenge. The race was held at Rouen Les Essarts in dry conditions. The venue proved itself to be an unfriendly place for the DMSv teams. Roland Ehnström qualified 2nd after the ultra quick DHR GP Corvette of Vincent Staal. We were robbed of a great race when a stray RPM BMW came across the grass and collected Roland with excessive aerodamage, and loss of top speed as a consequence. In the second DMSv BMW Björn Elofsson suffered from lagg fighting all the way to a 14th place across the finish line.
 Rouen
Things were not going any better for the green Corvettes of DMSv II. Björm Andersen gathered aero damage early on which sent him to the back finishing in 16th. Things where even worse for the second DMSv Corvette when Robert Öström suffered computer problems and disconnected just prior to the crucial 75% mark rendering his efforts null and void.
 
Unfortunately this is evident from the championship standings. But there is still half the season to go and we are not giving up! Not by a long shot!!

2-4-6 is still a great result for the team.

DMSv on site when Trange gets 2nd in JTCC (and Fredrik Larsson wins PCC)!

 

DMSv and DMS got together today at Falkenberg raceway for a IRL meeting between the virtual and traditional racing teams.
It was very intresting to watch how the team works in real race conditions and we picked up a few pointers from Alx particularly
about driver development

 

 

 

In the JTCC event Richard Trange scored a career best 2nd place with the Seat Leon while Rickard Javanainen was the victim of a spinning car and ended the race on the first lap.

In Porsche Carrera Cup our fingers were crossed for Fredrik Larsson, brother of DMSv's Peter Larsson, who went on to take a dominant win!

Mixed fortunes for DMSv in STC


The team has now participated in its first three races in Simracing Team Challenge.  The main goal this year is to get to know the organization and let as many drivers as possible get their feet wet (some got really really wet..). Entering the league after the midpoint, contending for series accolades was never a reasonable goal.


The first outing was at the Donnington Grand Prix circuit where Torbjörn Lindau and Peter Larsson on very short notice placed the Corvette C6R on 5th and 9th  place on the grid. Lindau had a good race with an excellent strategy and, aided by others misfortunes, finished in 2nd place for DMSv’s first ever STC podium. Larsson was struggling thru out the race  and had to watch the end of race from behind the pit wall.

The second outing was in Corvette C6 GT2 at Dijon where Björn Elofsson and Thomas Brevitz  used an unconventional strategy to finish 7th and 8th.

Third time the charm? Well, it was time for our resident world champion Roland Ehnström together with Tony Gunnarsson to tackle the appalling conditions of a flooded Dijon circuit.  A somewhat extended practice session showed 6 cars being the class of the field. Roaring Pipes Maniacs in their Koenigseggs, GMT-DH Racing in their Aston Martins, Tim Hoogendoorn in a Black Visor Saleen and Roland in the DMSv Corvette.

Roland ended up on 4th place on the grid with Tony on 9th. Both DMSv drivers started with heavy cars and had problems contending with the lighter cars of the competition. Tony was early on the victim for the traitorous conditions damaging the front of his C6R trying to avoid spinning cars. Roland took it easy in the early stages only keeping in touch with the leaders in anticipation of the pit stops. Taking advantage of strategy Roland took over the lead when all top drivers had pitted. Unfortunately his race was spoiled by contact with a lapped car.

In the end Roland finished 5th and as the owner of the fastest race lap while Tony soldiered on to a final 12th across the finish line.

With only the races at Moirana left on the schedule the entire DMSv organization is looking forward to STC Black cup in the fall.

Pending sponsor negations there might be not two, but four DMSv cars on the grid. Keep your fingers crossed!

The STC races are broadcast with live commentary every Thursday at 21.10 CET
