HUNGARIAN RACER SET TO FOR HOME SUPERSTARS DEBUT
Norbert Michelisz and his BMW M3 literally took off at Franciacorta, as the Hungarian racer turned his first laps yesterday aboard a SUPERSTARS car and left an incredibly strong impression at the venue close to Milan. Michelisz proved to be at the top of the game and ready to line-up for his maiden race in the FG GROUP-promoted series on July 1 at the Hungaroring.The day provided everybody with some great first impressions as the Milan-based squad looks forward to its first win of the season in Hungary.
"It's been great to be behind the wheel of this type of car - told Michelisz - the engine's sound is really loud, and matches the power which is impressive even when you just touch the throttle. The team has been satisfied with the early laptimes scored today which proved in-line with the other SUPERSTARS car. The BMW is a bit of a monster, you need to be measured with the gas. Although it's pretty small in size, the Franciacorta circuit is perfect for testing. At the start, I tried to gain the right amount of confidence with the car even though I was clearly able to perceive its full potential. Adapting the car to the characteristics of the Hungaroring will be key and I'll be advantaged because I know the track really well. It won't be easy because there are a lot of great drivers and cars ready to make our life tougher, but we'll do our best to be on top."
