Strong performance in Netherlands

Podium and plenty points in Zandvoort


Podium and plenty points in Zandvoort

Our customer, BRC Racing Team, celebrated a fruitful weekend at the Race of Netherlands which resulted in a podium in the third race.

All four of the team’s Hyundai i30 N TCR cars finished in points scoring positions in Race 3 with BRC Hyundai N Squadra Corse driver Norbert Michelisz bringing home a podium.

Only a few hours before the team had enjoyed great pace in Race 2, with three of its drivers finishing in the top ten.

Making a comeback

Sunday marked a change in fortunes for Norbert, who was forced to retire from Race 1 with a slow puncture. He brought home a seventh and third place finish in the final two races.

“A solid weekend for us. Really happy with the results, it was good to score important points for the championship,” said Norbert.

Team-mate Gabriele Tarquini made a spirited drive in the final race of the weekend, fighting his way through the field from 14th to ninth.

“Not my best weekend of the season. Overtaking is always very difficult here but I had some good races and collected some good points in the end,” said Gabriele.

Home hero

Dutch BRC Hyundai N LUKOIL Racing Team driver Nicky Catsburg gave the local fans a reason to cheer at Zandvoort, taking a good haul of points from all three races.

“Race of Netherlands was not too bad for us: Race 1 was difficult but in Race 2 we managed to get into the top ten in qualifying and I started and finished fourth,” said Nicky.

Augusto Farfus endured a difficult start to the weekend, but turned things back in his favour. He joined the top five shootout in the second qualifying session, and used his advantageous starting positions to secure a sixth and fourth place finish on Sunday.

“We showed signs of great pace in Zandvoort. I’m really pleased, great weekend,” said Augusto.

Summarising the team’s performance in the Netherlands, Team Principal Gabriele Rizzo said: “Sunday was a really strong day for us. In a weekend where one of our competitors has dominated every session, we can be proud that we were able to finish just behind them. In particular I’d like to congratulate Augusto on a strong performance this weekend. It was a shame he had his first qualifying destroyed from a fault of another competitor, but we are all convinced he will take home some silverware in the near future.”

The next round of the WTCR season, the Race of Germany, takes place at the legendary Nüburgring from June 20-22.
