Nicky Catsburg has vowed to do all he can to cut the points deficit he’s facing in the FIA World Touring Car Championship.

The Polestar Cyan Racing driver lost ground in the title battle following a double non-score at WTCC Race of Argentina.

With eight races remaining, the Dutchman is 41 points adrift of top spot in fifth position overall.

“We have prepared as much as possible ahead of the season-end sprint and I feel confident,” said the Volvo S60 Polestar driver. “I lost some ground to the leaders due to unfortunate punctures in the previous race weekend. But it is too early and too close to call so we are racing with the ambition for victories and to claim as many points as possible.”
