The seaside town of Zandvoort on the coast of Holland has a long history in motor sport, and many fans came out to welcome the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup to its first-ever appearance at the re-vitalised circuit. A premiere that was celebrated in Huber-style.
From Friday’s Practice Session until the chequered flag fell on Sunday’s race, Team Manager Christoph Huber of Nebulus Racing had a smile a mile wide. It wasn’t only due to the weather, which was as much of a contrast to the previous weekend’s miserable clouds and rain at Spa-Francorchamps as one could imagine.
The sun was shining on the Austrian, a former Team Manager for Walter Lechner (senior) in more ways than one. The team’s two principal cars had the edge throughout, and were able to make a clean sweep of Practice, Qualifying and the Race.
For the home crowd, with nine local drivers to cheer for, it meant merely that they would focus their attention on the more illustrious Dutchman that would be starting the afternoon’s F1 Grand Prix from pole position.
