MACAU SUCCESS FUNDAMENTAL TO WHERE I AM TODAY, SAYS PRIAULX
Andy Priaulx starts WTCR Race of Macau hoping that former glories can provide the impetus he needs to kick-start his, at times, “really frustrating” first season in WTCR / OSCARO. Back in 2005, Priaulx arrived in Macau on the cusp of winning the FIA World Touring Car Championship. He duly delivered, going on to make it a hat-trick of WTCC titles with BMW, including an against-the-odds triumph in 2007. Click to view the press release.
DAHLGREN GETS WTCR REWARD WITH PWR FOR HOME TITLE TRIUMPH
Robert Dahlgren will make his WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO debut at WTCR Race of Macau as his reward for winning TCR Scandinavia this season. Dahlgren takes over the PWR Racing-run CUPRA TCR campaigned so far in 2019 by team co-founder Daniel Haglöf in a move that’s also designed to bolster Mikel Azcona’s title challenge. Azcona is fifth in the points and top rookie in his first WTCR / OSCARO season for PWR Racing and will be able to count on Dahlgren’s experience and knowledge of the Circuito da Guia, which dates back to 2011 when the Swede topped the first qualifying session.
