Andreas Bäckman will use the upcoming WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup races to make further progression behind the wheel.

Teaming up with sister Jessica Bäckman at Target Competition, the Hyundai Elantra N TCR driver scored his first points at WTCR Race of Portugal last month. The Swede placed P16 in Race 1 at WTCR Race of Spain but posted a DNF in the second counter at MotorLand Aragón. He now wants to make even more progress.

“We had two tricky races,” said Bäckman. “We had quite a bad start in the first race, but we had more speed although it was difficult to pass. We had a good start in Race 2, but we had some vibrations and had to retire. However, we are still happy with our progress. Hopefully we can keep improving in the next couple of races.”

WTCR Race of Hungary is up next from August 20-22.
