Patrick arrived very confident to this race, after a great second place with lap record during the TOS held one week before the ETS round 2. His E4RS III Plus worked really great in similar conditions (ETS carpet, with same tires and additive) during this TOS race; so he knows his basic setup is working great.

During the first qualification, Patrick obtained a fantastic 2nd place, which has been the key-round to enter the A-final, combined with a 7th place in qualification two. Other rounds have been more difficult with traffic and grip change.

In first final, he obtained a lucky fifth place, with a difficult car and an “unclear” race with many contacts at many levels. Second final was also very difficult due to hard battles.

For the third final, Patrick decided to be really careful in the start, as the two first finals was a bit chaotic; so, he started really smoothly and found a way to pass many cars after a crash involving three cars in front of his Team Magic car. So, at the end of the first round, he pointed on third position, and decided to manage this nice place without taking risk !

This is a very nice for Team Magic and our E4RS III Plus, and of course for Patrick who deserved this fourth place.

Patrick worked a lot to develop Team Magic TC cars, and is a very loyal and appreciated driver; it’s great to saw him one more time in A-finale, to get it’s third fourth place in ETS (Luxembourg 2015 / Slovakia 2016). We know wish him to finish on the podium !

As Team Manager, I’m very happy to had 11 Team Magic cars participating this ETS round, and of course to have a car in A-final, with the great 4th place of Patrick Gassauer. I’m very proud of the team-job made by all our drivers. I saw many discussion between all the Team Magic drivers, with a nice information exchange between the most experienced and the less ones. I’m happy to have a so nice team.
