ADAC FORMEL MASTERS - TRIPLE VICTORY AND TITLE: KIRCHHÖFER'S PERFECT WEEKEND

Marvin Kirchhöfer wins 3rd race after charge up the field

Thomas Kirchhofer, ADAC, Formel Masters, Victory, Hockenheim, 2012After 24 exciting races during the season and a thrilling final weekend at the Hockenheimring, Marvin Kirchhöfer (18, Leipzig, Lotus) achieved another win in the last race. The newly-crowned champion rounded off his perfect weekend with a third win in the third race. In the first two races, the ADAC Sports Foundation protégé enjoyed a start-finish victory and in the final race, he fought his way up through the field from eighth on the grid to P1.

The most thrilling title battle in the history of the Formel ADAC was resolved on Saturday. Kirchhöfer sealed the championship fight ahead of the final race with two wins, having made an impressive comeback during the course of the two race weekends at the Nürburgring and Hockenheim: Kirchhöfer caught his championship rival Gustav Malja (16, Sweden, Neuhauser Racing) on the home straight with five successes in the last six races and secured the title.

New champion Marvin Kirchhöfer wins all three races in Hockenheim. Jeffrey Schmidt third in the championship.

"Finishing the season with a hat trick is simply fantastic. This weekend at Hockenheim has been just brilliant," said Kirchhöfer after his ninth victory and 16th podium finish in his debut year in the Formel ADAC.

Team-mate Jeffrey Schmidt (18, Switzerland, Lotus) made it a one-two victory for team champions Lotus on Sunday; the Swiss driver took second place on the podium to secure third position in the championship.
