To prepare properlyfor the next meeting of Porsche Supercup in Valencia, Isaac Tutumlu is taking part in the GT3 Cup Challenge Central Europe at the wheel of FÖRCH Racing by Lukas Motorsport´s Porsche 911.
Tutumlu continues his busy racing agenda during 2012 season and, after his participation in the WTCC earlier this year and then competing in the Porsche Supercup, is ready for a new challenge: GT3 Cup Challenge Central Europe.
The Spanish driver of Kurdish ancestry is taking part next weekend in this championship to put experience under his belt with FÖRCH Racing by Lukas Motorsport´s Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, and in this way to become as quick as possible in Valencia – next round of the Porsche Supercup-.
Next weekend's race, held at Pannonia Ring in Hungary, “it´s a great chance for me, and I´m pleased with my team, FÖRCH Racing, because they are organizing this championship. My teammates at FÖRCH Racing, Robert Lukas and Florian Scholze, and myself will have a whole weekend to gain experience with Porsche GT3 RS Cup, a car very demanding for us as drivers. Our goal is, of course, to increase our speed with the new cars”, Tutumlu explained.
“I approach this meeting as a new opportunity to represent Kurdish colors, the country whose support is playing a key role in my motorsport career. It is important as well for increasing my experience and preparing next meeting of the Porsche Supercup at Valencia Street Circuit, whose level is very high profiled with a lot of professional drivers. Of course, I will try my best in Hungary, and maybe to achieve a good result. It would be good to compensate for the results of Monaco, where after my very good race, in my opinion one of my best during my career, a rival hit me and prevented to end up into top-ten places”.Finally Tutumlu explained that “we are also trying to race in the Hungarian and/or Polish national championship, but we are waiting to see if it´s possible and if we are authorized by the organization. If we got it, our weekend would be even better. Anyway we won´t know this until Friday, when both free practice and qualifying sessions are scheduled”.
