On Saturday, 11.09.2021, the DrivingEmotion team led by Marc Riebel won the ROWE 6 Hours ADAC Ruhr Cup Race in the SP4 class by one lap.

On Friday, the Eifel presented itself in the usual mix of rain and sun. So the team started the evening practice session with rain tyres, only to switch to slicks shortly afterwards. And the weather capers continued - only a red flag spared the team from switching to rain tyres again.

For Saturday's qualifying session, the team relied on a drying track and waited to go out on slicks. But as so often in the Eifel, things turned out differently and Daniel Jolk went out with rain tyres to set a first time. At the end of his lap it was actually already too dry for rain tyres and still too wet for slicks and so Florian Haller and Marc Riebel had to try to set a better time on a drying track with slicks - which they did not manage. But as the other teams also had their difficulties with the weather, the one lap in the wet was enough for P2 on the grid.

For the race itself, sunny weather with light cloud cover but no rain was forecast and for once, the weather in the Eifel followed the forecast.

Daniel Jolk started the race at 12:00 and handed over the car - despite electronic problems and a minor contact with a Golf TCR - to Florian Haller in P2, a few seconds behind the leader. He drove confidently as usual and finished his stint in P1 after nine laps.

After half of the race, the electronic problems - which caused a short loss of power and the activation of the ESP - disappeared and the team was already leading by several minutes.

But the victory was not yet in the bag. The pursuers in P2 had already completed their compulsory pit stop time due to a longer repair, while the team around Marc Riebel still had to pit for more than six minutes.

Now Daniel Fink's hour had come. He drove the fastest lap of the team in his stint with 10:37.814 and was able to increase the gap to P2 to one lap. So Marc only had to keep the gap to P2 constant and the team could afford a long, four-minute pit stop at the end before Daniel Jolk climbed back into the car and completed the class victory in superior style.

The team would like to thank all supporters, especially Racewerk Motorsports and Schemmann Motorsports for the preparation of the car and the convincing work in the pits. Special thanks also go to our sponsors Loos Trading GmbH, Implify, SL-Dental and Rennsport Team Südtirol, without whom this success would not have been possible.
