Runner-up in the Teams’ standing, Podium finish and best rookie in the drivers’ standing: Team WRT convert the try in Monza!
“We made it!”: there was a sense of relief and satisfaction among Team WRT members at the end of a TCR Europe season, whose final round at Monza proved challenging till the very end. Still, the Belgian squad reached all its objectives: Team WRT is the runner-up in the Teams’ overall standings, and Santiago Urrutia clinched the third place on the final podium of the series, being also the best-classified driver competing on Volkswagen Group cars and taking the unofficial title of best rookie of the year.
Both the Uruguayan and Maxime Potty had to suffer and fight hard in Italy to bring home three points finishes that secured all the objectives. Throughout the weekend, they struggled with lower top speed than some of their rivals, something that on the fast ‘Temple of Speed’ represents a very serious handicap.
