Pfister Racing Team’s entry into the SKODA OCTAVIA CUP 2018

Obersfeld. In the 2018 racing season, the internationally successful Pfister Racing Team will enter the brand trophy SKODA OCTAVIA CUP. The racing class, renowned throughout Europe, requires a 270 hp SKODA OCTAVIA touring car, and displays professional touring car motor sport on top-class racing circuits. For the Pfister Racing Team, the racing drivers Wolfgang Kriegl (AUT) and Björn Dietrich (GER) are behind the wheel.

Team leader Andreas Pfister commented as follows: “We are pleased to be able to enter the SKODA OCTAVIA CUP. This is an important milestone in our teams’ history. Our involvement in the SKODA OCTAVIA CUP will take place in addition to our activities in the other racing classes, but it is certainly a central focal point for us in the 2018 season. With Wolfgang Kriegl, we were able to win the CHEVROLET Cruze Eurocup Champion in 2016 for the project as our driver. Björn Dietrich, an equally successful touring car driver from the CHEVROLET Cruze Eurocup, gained a place as a guest start for the race in the Red Bull Ring. We are highly motivated and are now looking forward to making a racing car that is perfectly prepared for the SKODA OCTAVIA CUP available for our drivers!”


















With 270 hp, the SKODA OCTAVIA CUP racing care provides a great touring performance


In the 2017 season, the OCTAVIA CUP touring car underwent an extensive technical redesign and now achieves a great performance, paired with a reliable DCT from the Volkswagen group.

Wolfgang Kriegl makes his debut in the SKODA OCTAVIA CUP

Racing driver Wolfgang Kriegl is already looking forwards to the start of the season: The first official test of the season is coming closer and I’m already excited about getting back behind the wheel. In fall, myself and my colleagues were able to take the Octavia Cup racing car out for a test drive on the Most racing track. I felt just as comfortable behind the wheel. The starting grid for both of the opening races at the end of April has a lot of entries, and I’m looking forwards to what I am sure will be an exciting and challenging season.”
