In memoriam René Wallner

A sad tiding: our Austrian racing friend René Wallner has left us. In 2018 he joined the NK HTGT with his Lotus Cortina, a car he had already been running for many years. His racing experience was clear to see, as he was immediately up to speed, scoring 4 class wins that year. Unfortunately, from time to time his health forced René to miss a race. However when he was with us, he gave it 100% on the track. At Dijon in 2019 he again showed everyone a clean pair of heels and took home a couple of 1st place trophies. Of course 2020 was a lost season for everyone, but we were really looking forward to having René with us again in 2021. Alas, it is not to be. René was an extremely friendly and sympathetic man, he will be very much missed in the paddock. Rest in peace René.
