After the new final production XB808 buggy testing at the US Silverstate, and upcoming World Championship track testing in Charlotte I was flying back home relaxed with good feelings. Usually my brain is hyperactive and keeps analyzing everything doneâ€¦ and what is next on my plan. This time, flying home on the long flight I was really relaxed. Why? Because I was satisfied with the final XB808 buggy and the work we had done, and was confident in the great performance of the NT1 â€“ the car I was going to race at the upcoming event. Since cuccessfully finishing the work on the XB808 buggy, I could now fully concentrate on the upcoming touring car races. I was to land back in Europe on Friday and then turn around and leave Sunday for Portugal for the nitro touring car World Championship warm-upâ€¦ this time to meet my touring car team and to go from â€œbumps and jumpsâ€ to â€œfast and smoothâ€ but still with the sweet smell of nitro in the air.
