Team WRT extracts the best possible, including a podium finish, out of the WTCR and TCR Europe rounds in challenging Hungaroring
The Hungaroring proved to be what it was expected : not the most favorable track to the Audis RS 3 LMS and the weather as well : changing constantly ! Despite those factors, Team WRT was able to extract many positive things out of the double commitment (FIA WTCR and TCR Europe) in Hungary.
In the FIA WTCR races, where the Belgian squad is present under the colours of Leopard Racing Team Audi Sport, Jean-Karl Vernay scored points in all races, taking a superb podium in Race 2, while Gordon Shedden suffered a difficult weekend in a series that is extremely competitive.
No less competitive is the TCR Europe, whose 2019 edition took off at this occasion. After a nightmarish Race 1, where both Team WRT cars found themselves out of the race after two corners!, the young guns of Team WRT recovered solidly in Race 2 on a humid track, with Santiago Urrutia taking P6 with the Audi RS 3 LMS and Max Potty P9 with the Volkswagen Golf GTi.
