Andy Priaulx Has Tough WTCR Weekend In Ningbo
The weekend at the Ningbo International Speedpark had highs and lows for Andy Priaulx in the WTCR race of China.
The high was starting race two from pole in his Lynk & Co 03 TCR thanks to the reverse grid, but a low was after leading for most of the race not being able to convert that into a win. After the three FIA World Touring Car Cup races Andy’s comments were: “That was a tough weekend. On Saturday I had good pace for race one, but was run wide in a fast corner and lost places. Then on Sunday for race two it was nice to lead a race again. I had that pretty much wrapped up and under control, but sadly it was not to be as I was taken out by another competitor. For the third race I had a really good start and then got a big hit from the rear and that cost me the race as I had suspension damage.” The results of the weekend for the Lynk & Co Cyan Racing driver were 14thin race one, 16th in race two and 11th in race three. “Sadly for me that first win has still eluded me, but well done to my team mate Yvan Muller, who won two of the three races and is now in a great position in the championship standings with three races to go,” said Andy. The next race in the championship is in Japan at the iconic Suzuka track.
