MINI Challenge 2009

The team from Arden Racing took part again in the popular Challenge and won the Gentlemen standing. With E. Piro as a driver, Arden Racing won the first races at Hockenheim and Silverstone and celebrated a magnificent 3-fold triumph.

Further podium spots followed in the Gentlemen standing and dramatic comeback come on the Nürburgring at the Oldtimer Grand Prix. Due to incorrectly labeled tires Arden Racing was forced to start from last place, but still managed to gain the second place.

As the leading team in the overall standing and three points ahead of racing legend Harals Grohs, who is renowned for his 24-hour race, Arden Racing traveled to Salzburg.

In the last race of the season, Piro, despite a poor starting position, quickly caught up to Grohs and even managed to stay front over several laps.

Shortly before the end the grand old champion overtook again. Thus, with only a single point behind, Arden Racing has to settle with the 2nd place.
