Marco Müller wins Swiss 1/8th Nats Rd1
Shepherd are reporting from the first race of the 2009 Swiss Nationals that took place in Schaffhausen last weekend. It was Marco Müller’s debut race as a Team Shepherd driver and he dominated the event with his brand new Velox 09. Breaking the existing track record by a sensational 0.2 sec he secured himself the pole position after qualifying. The final proved the great performance of the car, with Marco leading the race from the beginning to end winning from Jürg Nydegger in 2nd and Christophe Pethoud in 3rd. For young Shepherd talent Simon Kurzbuch it was a succesfull weekend, too. He placed 3rd after qualifying and was therefore qualified directly for the final. Unfortunately, he experienced technical difficulties at the beginning of the final and fell back to the last position managing to work back up to 8th position and claim the first place in the junior ranking.
