St. Koloman

Nationality:

Austria

F2 starts:

2 (1979-1980)

Touring car and hillclimber who although he won the Austrian Touring Car title in 1979, really excelled at hillclimbs. He is also a good friend of Walter Wolf, and that link led to opportunities and very nearly, a F1 drive in 1979. Still well, he runs a garage in Kuchl, where he lives, but he remains linked to St. Koloman as he is involved in a sports club there and still enjoys ski-ing locally. Siller, in addition to his 1979 title, also took the 1975 European hillclimb championship in the touring car category. Siller carried on competing in hillclimbs until the late 1980's.
