Engstler wins two in Yokohama trophy
"My car was not fine"
Just like in Marrakech, Franz Engstler won both the TC2T class races, counting towards the Yokohama Trophy.
However, he had to recover after a disappointing qualifying and especially after a hard crash in the second race, when he was hit by John Filippi’s SEAT.
“In the second race there were a lot of up and downs. I had a bad start with too much wheelspin, and after the contact I came back in the last position and had to fight back. After the restart I had a really good reflex, but Filippi hit me so hard and I fell back. The second safety car period helped me to close the gap, and after the second restart I had a really big fight with Pasquale Di Sabatino. My car was not fine, the steering was completely swerved to the right. But anyway, I was on the lucky side to be able to continue after the crash. Filippi hit me on the wheel, but nothing was broken, and I am very happy about it,” Engstler said.
