Andreas Pfister left Portugal for his native Germany with more FIA European Touring Car Cup points in the bag following an encouraging performance in Vila Real last weekend.

The 29-year-old was making his debut on the challenging street track and qualified sixth in his older-specification SEAT where temperatures reached 60 degrees centigrade.

After a puncture ruled out a top-five finish in Race 1, Pfister hit back in Race 2 to finish the truncated race in sixth place.

“It was very turbulent and several of my competitors retired after hitting the wall,” said Pfister. “This resulted in several safety car periods and the race ended with a red flag after guardrail damage. In these circumstances, I am happy to have brought our race car over the finish line without damage and claim more points. A special thank you goes to my team, Alois Pfister, Kai Denner and Rene Körner, for the absolutely great work during the whole race weekend as well as the endless fans at the race track for the incomparable atmosphere.”

Petr Fulín ensured he was crowned the 2017 FIA European Touring Car Cup winner with a comfortable home victory in the second encounter at ETCC Race of Most in the Czech Republic earlier today (Sunday).
