ORLEN on course for success – The VERVA Racing Team wins at the Hungarian Grand Prix

02-08-2011

Last weekend Kuba Giermaziak celebrated his first victory in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup on the Hungaroring outside the gates of Budapest, becoming the 50th Supercup winner. He battled through to an impressive victory in a turbulent, rain-soaked race. The VERVA Racing Team is supported by ORLEN Deutschland GmbH.

By sponsoring the VERVA Racing Team it is the intention of ORLEN Deutschland GmbH to extend its involvement in the field of motor sport and to make the brand star accessible to a wider public. "We are delighted that Kuba is going into the history of the fastest international one-make cup as the first Polish winner and also the very first Eastern European winner," says Wieslaw Milkiewicz, Managing Director and Head of Marketing at ORLEN Deutschland GmbH. In the motor sport sector the oil combine also sponsors the star racing team in formula 3, for which Kuba also drives, and the Yamaha Motor Germany bike racing team in the IDM (the International German Motorcycle Championship).
 
 
Starting from fifth on the grid, Kuba set to work and was already in third place at the end of the first lap. After the fourth lap he was already in the lead. In his 450 horsepower Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, Kuba finished 18.783 seconds ahead of Dutchman Jeroen Bleekemolen in second place. Briton Sean Edwards scored a third place to take the lead in the championship. Wieslaw Milkiewicz proudly adds: "The sort of lead that Kuba built up in the race on Sunday is a total rarity in this fiercely contested series."
 
 
And the happy winner also adds, "We also did some testing on the circuit in the rain in the run-up to the race. Then the team managed to put all the information that we had gained from training to good effect in the race. I am really delighted with my first win in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup."
