Sabrina Lechner & Sarah Pierson – Interview

Sabrina Lechner & Sarah Pierson

Continuing the interviews from the Euro B 1/10th scale Championships in Roeselare, the organisers have sent us an interview they have made with 2 young lady racers, Sabrina Lechner of Germany and Sarah Pierson of France. Don’t think they are at the event to be spectators as these girls are pretty quick with Sabrina finishing the German Nationals as runner up last year and Sarah is currently lying 3rd in the French Nationals and both racers are sponsored.

Sarah: Nothing , I’m also very pleased with the car and engine i’m using.

What do you think about the track ?
Sabrina: It’s a very good track, It feels easy to drive. It’s very fast, but also technical.

What about the event and the organisation ?
Sabrina: I think it is very well organised. Last year, we had some problems, but here it’s great.
Sarah: As this is my first EC, I can not compare. But I’m very pleased. Whenever I have a question, there is always someone to answer.

Are you working on your car yourself, or do you depend on your mechanic?
Sabrina: I do some things, but not all. For other things I have to depend on my father, who’s normally my mechanic.
Sarah: I do everything myself, I’m able to change the setup of my car if something is wrong.

What are your expectations for this event ?
Sabrina: I have no idea. I hope to be in the final, but we will see. This morning it was a little difficult, but this afternoon it was OK.
Sarah: I would like to win, but I’m allready very happy I’m competing in an European event. Today, I’m very pleased with my practise times.

Have you competed in other events,and what is your best result ?
Sabrina: I have competed in several events. Last year I was best youngster in both the 1/10 EC in Heemstede (NL) and the German championship 1/8. I was also second overall in the German championship last year.
Sarah: I’m driving in the French championship this year. For now, I’m in third place.
