Simon Reicher wants to fight for podium places at Nürburgring
12. Juni 2019 Zurück zur Artikelübersicht »

Next weekend Simon Reicher is going to participate in his second DMV-race this year. Of course, he will drive for his old racing team Yaco Racing because two weeks ago they already had a very successful cooperation at Red Bull Ring. The Schaufler Paravan Race Weekend at Nürburgring is already the fourth race weekend of DMV GTC and Dunlop 60. Simons’ goal there is especially one thing: Together with his team, he really wants to attack. “I am already so excited about the race weekend at Nürburgring. I am normally used to drive the short Grand-Prix-route, but this time we actually drive the whole distance. That is to say 5 kilometers“, the Kirchberger explains euphorically. 

The 19-year-old believes that he can take the next step in the right direction with Yaco Racing at Nürburgring. “It has already worked so well at Red Bull Ring. So we will obviously try to accomplish an amazing performance again. It will probably be even better because this time we drive with a bigger restrictor than at Red Bull Ring. We will give our best and hopefully manage to deliver a top performance. Plus, we want to enjoy a beautiful race weekend“, Simon looks at the upcoming event with pleasant anticipation. Who decides which restrictors are being used? “The races are usually organized after FIA-regulations. Thus, you have to use a restrictor according to their norm. Otherwise, there will be consequences, and you get punished“, Simon agitates the subject. He sees a big advantage in the bigger restrictor, especially during the next weekend. “I am one hundred percent sure that we will be able to attack easier with the bigger restrictor – particularly in comparison to Mercedes on the straight line.  There will be a different route-layout at Nürburgring, and we will try our best to give them a hard time“, the likable Austrian expresses confidently.  

Does Simon have a specific aim he is working towards at the race weekend at Nürburgring? “At Dunlop 60 and especially at the two separate half-hour races it is our goal to be on the podium. I really hope it is going to be a successful weekend“, the Kirchberger sums up.

The Motorsports-Talent also has reason to celebrate aside from the race track: He passed his written and oral A-level. That also means that from now on he can on completely focus on motorsports. “I am incredibly happy that I graduated so well. Now I have got something that I can fall back on after my racing career. Furthermore, it was really important to me to be well-educated“, Simon raves.
