Gustav Malja ends hectic summer with double Sachsenring score

Gustav Malja took a brace of ninth-place finishes from the penultimate Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland round of the season.

The Swede, a debutant in Porsche racing this year, drove two steady races at Germany’s Sachsenring to cap off a run of eight consecutive weekends of action in PCCD and the sister Porsche Supercup.
“I’m relatively happy with a set of ninth places this weekend,” Gustav Malja says. “We know we’ve got a few things to work on at the moment, but this gives us the momentum to keep doing that. Sachsenring is a difficult track and to come here for the first time in the Porsche was a big challenge. I still need to improve qualifying, which is what’s holding me back at the moment, but given the circumstances I’m quite pleased with how the weekend went.”
The final round of the 2018 Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland season takes place at Hockenheim on September 21-23.
