Fabio Scherer from Fach Auto Tech ended the season in the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup on 19th respectively 17th places in the finale sessions at Monza. Already after qualifying it was obvious that it would be very difficult for the 22-year-old from Engelberg to achieve better results.

“During the post-qualifying check, it was discovered that I did not have the prescribed remaining amount of two litres of fuel on board,” Scherer explained. “That’s why all my times were cancelled and I had to start in both races from 32nd and last position.”

Although Scherer overtook a total of 28 cars in both races, it wasn’t quite enough to finish in the points. “The speed was there, especially in the second race,” says Scherer. “And the chases to catch up were fun, too. But of course it is disappointing when you have to start from the very back of your home race in Monza twice through no fault of your own.”

Scherer’s focus is now on the two remaining races in the WEC in Bahrain (30th October and 6th November). Before that, the LMP2 driver, who is supported by STOBAG and ATS Banding Systems, will make a guest appearance in the Swiss Kart Championship in Wohlen on September 25th. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Alexander Fach and Porsche for many exciting moments during this season. At the same time, I congratulate Larry ten Voorde on successfully defending his title in the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup. And of course I would also like to congratulate Team McLaren and especially Zak Brown, McLaren CEO and co-owner of United Autosports, my team in the FIA World Endurance Championship, for winning the Italian Grand Prix!”
