campaign was halted by sponsorship problems beyond our control. However, two
podium placings in the opening rounds and some other good results enabled us to
lead the Rookie Standings going into the final weekend. I am grateful for the
opportunity Marcel and Renato at Jetstream gave me and also to Karsten at MRS
for the opportunity to do the closing races. Thanks are also due to the
Giltraps and Porsche for their continued support in making this happen” said
