Introducing the WTCR’s 24-hour car-build people
It took Néstor Girolami’s ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport mechanics 24 hours to get the Argentine back on track in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup after his car-wrecking crash in Race 2 at WTCR Race of Slovakia last weekend.
Following Girolami’s high-speed accident, his German team started working in readying a replacement Honda Civic Type R TCR to allow the four-time WTCR race winner to carry out a brief shakedown run at the Slovakia Ring last Monday afternoon.
Although ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport had a test car available at the Slovakia Ring, only the chassis from that Civic Type R TCR was used with the remainder of the car built up from entirely new components within 24 hours.
Girolami said: “After the disappointment of last weekend, heading straight to the Hungaroring offers us an immediate chance to fight back and rebuild our title bid. I have to say a huge thanks to the ALL-INKL.COMMünnich Motorsport team for building me a new car in a little over 24 hours – that was an amazing job, and just to have been able to shake the car down on Monday is a big positive. It’s difficult to tell with this year’s results how we will compare to others, but memories of my double win last year will be a big motivation.”
