Ten days from now, Christopher Haase will take part in what he considers to be his personal highlight of the season, the legendary 24 hour race at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Driving the latest version of the Audi R8 LMS for Phoenix Racing together with his fellow Audi factory drivers Christian Mamerow, René Rast, and Markus Winkelhock, he will aim for nothing less than the defence of his title from last year, and his third overall victory on what is considered to be the world’s most challenging racetrack. “The Phoenix Racing team is ready as it can be, and our car is a potential winner. Now it is up to my colleagues and myself to reach that goal. Winning here will certainly take a little bit of luck, but I am very excited to face the challenge of the Nürburgring!”
A fine 2nd finish was the continuation of last year’s success at Laguna Seca for Christopher Haase and his American team mate Dion von Moltke. The two Audi drivers are now also in an excellent position in the overall points table of the United Sports Car championship: They lead the drivers’ standings by one point while in the teams’ standings, Paul Miller Racing is in an excellent 2nd place.
