I made way about 10 secs before that photo. He was extremely quick in the corners. However, in Wipperman, Eiskurve and Pflanzgarten, I had to either lift off the gas or even brake so I wouldn't run into him from behind. Upon inspection after the lap was over, I noticed that it was on competition tires!

I had a sneaky feeling about that when I saw the pic. I bet it was shod with 195/50/16 Yoko A-048's in which case it's bound to have been a competitor in the newly-organised German or Swiss Mini Cup that you encountered.

Good show, nonetheless!

They were Kumho V700s. Didn't catch the size but they were on the stock 17" wheels. I didn't get a chance to hear the car, but it was quite wuick up the straights. I had more pull but nothing very significant.
