Race fans and media members got a glimpse at the upcoming WTCC event at Sonoma on the steps of the California State Capitol building in Sacramento yesterday.
There Chevrolet driver Yvan Muller, Chevrolet Motorsport manager Eric Nève and Sonoma raceway President & General Manager, Steve Page, took part in a press conference to preview the event.
“I am delighted to come to race to the US. I love the States and I am a regular visitor. In general, I like a lot to go to new tracks, it’s nice to discover new places and new cultures and to meet new people,” said Muller, the reigning WTCC Champion. “Sonoma has a tremendous reputation on the international scene, because of the track itself, which is very interesting, and also because of the region, and it’s great to have it on the calendar.”
After the press conference Muller was available for one-to-one interviews and posed for pictures alongside his Chevrolet Cruze racing car.
