TAG Heuer Best Lap Trophy: More WTCC silverware for Huff

Rob Huff claimed the TAG Heuer Best Lap Trophy to cap a successful FIA WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Macau weekend for the ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport driver.

The Briton, who won the wet Main Race on Sunday morning from his DHL Pole Position, also set the fastest lap in the dry Opening Race on Saturday. Given the treacherous conditions for the Main Race, that mark of 2m26.469s around the 6.120-kilometre track ensured his third TAG Heuer Best Lap Trophy of 2017 – and a TAG Heuer watch – were in the bag.

The Briton, pictured celebrating with father Peter, only claimed victory on Sunday after his team rebuilt his Citroën C-Elysée WTCC overnight, following damage sustained in the incident that stopped the Opening Race early.
