Mikel Azcona capped an unforgettable first appearance at WTCR Race of Portugal by winning the TAG Heuer Best Lap Trophy in Vila Real to go along with his Race 2 victory.

The Spaniard set the fastest lap in both Race 2 and Race 3 in his PWR Racing CUPRA TCR, but it was the earlier mark that was the best. His time of 2m02.360s just shaded his Race 3 lap by 0.1s.

Yann Ehrlacher, a double podium finisher at WTCR Race of Portugal, set the fastest lap in Race 1 on Saturday on his way to second place. His time was 2m02.879s.

Azcona’s Race 2 win was not only his first in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO, but also marked a maiden victory for PWR and the first for the CUPRA brand in the 2019 season.
