Porsche drivers ready for home track

Postat av Johan Meissner kl 15:34

Porsche drivers Roar Lindland, Prince Carl Philip and Matte Karlsson are ready for the Carrera Cup races at Karlskoga this weekend, the home track of Flash Engineering.
”It is all about maximum attack now. I am going for a podium finish this weekend, it is time for it now,” said Lindland.

The Norwegian is fifth in the championship ahead of this weekend’s races and says that the summer break has given him new energy.
”The break makes you extra ready to get going. I have the same feeling as ahead of the season start and it feels inspiring,” said Lindland.

Team mate Matte Karlsson has prepared him self with extra tests at Karlskoga last week.
”Things worked well at the test and we found some new things that I think are going to be useful,” said Karlsson.

With less than three race weekends left of this season, Karlsson is eleventh in the championship.
”I think it has been all right so far this year. But we need to take one step further this weekend. Karlskoga is the track that I have got most experience of and I can promise you that I am going to go flat out this weekend,” said Karlsson.

Prince Carl Philip is nine points ahead of Karlsson in tenth position in the championship and is looking for revenge from last race weekend’s zero points.
”I like it at Karlskoga and I have claimed my best results here in the past. The goal for the weekend is to be within the top ten and score a lot of points in both races,” said Prince Carl Philip.
