PMSC ZANDVOORT : LACK OF PERFORMANCE AND HOPING FOR BETTER
In the summer series of Porsche Mobil1 Supercup, from September 4th to the 6th , took place on the Zandvoort circuit, a circuit redone to accommodate Formula 1 with slopes and bankings. The stands were packed by Thursday with an armada of overheated spectators. The weather was good all weekend.
This atypical and very technical circuit by the sea, gave a lot of trouble in the search for performance. The constant presence of sand on the track provides very little grip.
Following the free practice session, the results were quite encouraging. Read more...
PMSC SPA : FROM DISILLUSION TO DISILLUSION
After participating in the 24 Hours of Le Mans last weekend, Florian had a meeting at SPA on August 28th and 29th . Indeed, Florian has made every race driver's dream come true: to experience the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was Team DEMPSEY-PROTON that offered this opportunity and Florian made the most of it in each of his outings on the track, but unfortunately the mechanics forced the crew to retire after 5 hours of racing. Despite everything, it remains an extraordinary adventure.
Florian took some bad luck with him this weekend to SPA.
The weather was wintry this weekend in the Ardennes, but the free practice session would be the only outing on the dry track. As the name suggests, a free practice session is meant to try out both mechanics and driving. After the summer break, all of the team's cars are in the middle of the timesheet, but that’s irrelevant and we had to do better the next day. Read more...
PMSC BUDAPEST : THE RISE IN POWER IS CONFIRMED WITH A PODIUM
This weekend at the end of July marked the return of the Porsche Supercup for the 4th meeting which closed the first half of the championship. Despite the menacing weather and thunderstorms, each outing on the track was on perfectly dry asphalt.
Once again, Florian discovered the Hungarian circuit with the new Cup during the Friday practice session. Getting started was quickly effective and the team, which is increasingly proficient in its subject, allows for rapid progress during the session. It will finally be third place after forty minutes for only two tenths.
Saturday is traditionally reserved for the qualifying session should allow confirmation, but nothing is ever taken for granted at this level of the competition. On the first set of tires, Florian is among the best but we know that it will not be satisfactory. Some alterations to the setup and we leave with the second plan. Read more...
PCCF MONZA : GREAT WORK BY A GREAT TEAM
The race weekends continues this time back at the French Porsche Carrera Cup Championship on the Monza circuit on the 10th and 11th July . As is often the case at this time of year, the weather in the Milanese region is very hot but there was no rain this weekend.
The few days of tests carried out by the team in pre-season on this circuit, as well as the experience that has accumulated with this new car has enabled the level of performance to be raised to the top.
The two sessions on Friday allowed Florian to climb to the top of the times and to foresee good opportunities for the 2 races to come.
The qualifying confirmed the potential from the first set of tyres with the best time of the laps. Read more...
PMSC SPIELBERG 2 : A GREAT COMEBACK
After last weekend, which was difficult for the whole team, a lot of work was done by everyone during the week in order to have a better run for this second meeting in Spielberg. Still under the threat of the mountainous clouds of Styria but still with dry weather.
The traditional Friday practice session reassured everyone with the second fastest time, 32 thousandths of a second off the best time. Florian was perfectly positioned but as always in a test session all proportions are kept in mind regarding the state of the tyres used by everyone. However, the work was rewarded and the absence of testing on this circuit began to be forgotten.
The time trial starts perfect, Florian is in the first place with the first set of tyres but unfortunately 10 minutes later his time was cancelled. A marshal took a very severe and questionable decision. Read more...
PMSC SPIELBERG 1 : DIFFICULT WEEKEND
On the weekend of the 26th and 27th June, the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup was back for the second time since Monaco. The stifling heat and thunderstorms in the heart of the Austrian mountains did not disrupt the meeting.
The Red Bull Ring in Spielberg is a fast circuit which traditionally has very little gaps between the competitors. It is therefore necessary to prepare the circuit well in order to not to be too far behind on the starting grid. Nevertheless, the team arrived in Styria without having done any testing compared to most of the teams, who had driven for several days and done races during the German Cup.
The practice run session was therefore crucial because Florian had no reference points with this new car and no data for his engineer. Read more...
PCCF SPA : LACK OF SUCCESS BUT GOOD PREPARATION
Third Porsche Carrera Cup France 2021 meeting, the SPA meeting took place under summer weather conditions with heavy thunderstorms which did not impact the program.
The three-week time off allowed the team to prepare the cars well and Florian to take a well-deserved break after a succession of three intense meetings. Friday's practice session showed this, even if the state of each of the drivers tires are still unknown.
As usual, Saturday started off with the qualifying . Following the storms from the previous night, the temperature conditions had changed and as a result, Florian had difficulties on the first set of tires. Benjamin, his engineer, quickly corrected the data and allowed Florian to get back into the swing of things on the second set of tires, obtaining two second places. Read more...
PMSC MONACO : AN ENCOURAGING START TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP
After the deadlock in the 2020 Championship, the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup returned to Monaco this year for the opening round of the F1 Grand Prix. The temperatures weren’t scorching hot, but the 27 drivers had to deal with a dry track.
As with any city circuit, test runs are not possible, so they had to make the most of the allocated 40 minutes to get this new Porsche set up as well as possible. The traffic didn't allow us to be at the top of the time sheet but the work from the team discovering this track was very good and all the ingredients seemed to be there for a good performance.
With the first set of tires, Florian got the second fastest time but the car and the driving still need to be perfected because, as usual, it is the second set that will count. Florian was among the first and did a very good lap which confirmed his position of second at 57 thousandths from pole position... Read more...
PCCF PAUL RICARD: THE PERFORMANCE, THE FIRST GOOD OMEN PODIUM BEFORE THE SUPERCUP
This May, the meetings have followed one another. After Magny-Cours, it was time to go to Paul Ricard on 15th and 16th May, with cloudy and cool weather for the season but that didn’t spare the competitors.
The two days of practice highlighted the teams very good performance and work, earning first place in three out of four sessions. The winter try outs and the start of the season in the French Championship enabled a very good preparation for the Supercup which is on the horizon.
On Saturday, was the timed trial. While all the indicators were green and the whole team was imagining the two poles, unfortunately the judges didn’t want it that way... Read more...
PCCF MAGNY-COURS : WHILE WAITING FOR BETTER DAYS
For this new season, the hostilities resumed on the Magny-Cours circuit with the Porsche Carrera Cup France championship on 7th and 8th May 2021. This year, Florian remains loyal to the CLRT team of Côme Ledogar and will once again take part in the French Championship and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. The new Porsche 992 has stirred things up between the drivers and teams, as all the previous achievements must be rebuilt. This first round allowed us to measure up the level of every drivers performance.
The two free practice sessions on Thursday took place in wet conditions with particularly encouraging results. Nevertheless, very little information could be gathered to prepare for the weekend which took place on a dry track. Despite this, we will remember the performances and the quality of the set-ups put in place by the team for rainy meetings in the future. Read more...
