Guerrieri doubles up in WTCC style at home

Esteban Guerrieri used his home rounds of the FIA World Touring Car Championship to deliver one of his best weekends in the WTCC so far with a third and a fourth in the two races at Circuito Termas de Río Hondo.

Guerrieri, who also took top WTCC Trophy honours in the Main Race, now has 113 points in the overall standings, 22 fewer than former world champion Rob Huff.

“It’s been two very tough races,” said the Buenos Aires resident. “For me I am really happy be honest how the Sunday turned around to be a very good Sunday. Two very aggressive races. I was in the good side in every manoeuvre I did. In the end I was a bit lucky sometimes because when you push things can go wrong as well. But the races were good, good overtaking, good manoeuvres, good fights with everybody, this is what the people wanted to see.

“It’s been a very solid weekend for us so I am very thankful to all the team Campos and everybody who came to support us here.”

Tom Coronel claimed his first podium in this season’s FIA World Touring Car Championship – and then revealed how a casino visit last night had brought him much-needed luck.

FIA World Touring Car Championship title chaser Norbert Michelisz said his crash in the Opening Race at WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Macau this afternoon has left him feeling like a volcano inside.

Mehdi Bennani led all the way to claim victory in the Opening Race at WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Macau as FIA World Touring Car Championship title contender Norbert Michelisz was involved a crash that stopped the exciting action early on the tight Guia street track.

Kevin Gleason marked his return to Macau with a career-best qualifying performance that could boost his bid for a maiden podium finish in the upcoming FIA World Touring Car Championship street races.

Nicky Catsburg reckoned he had the pace to start on the front row for Sunday’s Main Race at WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Macau – but will instead line up closer to the back after he crashed in the opening part of qualifying this afternoon.
