In 2006, Norbert reached the Main Eventís semi-final and finished 10th in the FIA Championship. His fortunes were mixed during the rest of the year but included the lowering of his personal best ET to 6.45.

In 2007, little went right for Norbert till Julyís FIA race at Mantorp Park, Sweden. Though missing the cut for Europeís quickest-ever Pro Mod race (qual. 20th @ 6.93), he entered eliminations as an alternate and snatched a first-round win with career-best figures of 6.38/223.89 before tyre-shake eliminated him in the second round.

At Augustís prestigious non-championship event at Hockenheim, Germany, he gave his finest performance to date, sweeping to victory over an 8-car field and setting fresh career marks of 6.356/227.04 in the final.

Norbert achieved even better figures at Santa Podís FIA European Finals, clocking fresh career-bests of 6.256 and 227.10 while qualifying 7th and reaching the second round.
