Second season victory in Detroit

Boundless joy for Mario Farnbacher – After the podium success in Laguna Seca the 23-year-old this time managed to climb on the top step of the podium. At the fourth round of the United SportsCar Championship (USCC) on the Belle Isle Circuit Mario Farnbacher and Ian James crossed the finish line as shining winners in the hard-fought GTD-Class, being on course for further success.

Podium success in the USCC

Mario Farnbacher is still on a winning track: After the victory at the Sebring 12 hours race in March, the German from Lichtenau celebrates his next podium success in the United Sportscar Championship (Tudor USCC). At the third round of the 2015 season the 22-yearl-old eked out a third place in the fiercely contested GTD-Class.

Mario Farnbacher missed to see the chequered flag

Mario Farnbacher and his team Alex Job Racing were really pursued by misfortune at the Daytona 24 hours race. Already during the formation lap for the endurance classic in the U.S. state of Florida the German experienced technical problems and was forced to head back into the pit lane again. In the further course of the race he and his team mates Ian James and Alex Riberas had to settle with some more unfortunate circumstances. Finally the trio was forced to retire from the race with an engine failure after eight hours. At least there was yet still a reason to celebrate.
