Michelisz: Still in a good position in WTCR
Norbert Michelisz is refusing to give up on his title dreams despite a tough WTCR Race of China-Wuhan weekend.
Michelisz failed to score in all three races in his BRC Racing Team Hyundai i30 N TCR but is still in touch with team-mate and championship leader Gabriele Tarquini, just 46 points adrift with six races left to run.
“China and especially the weekend in Wuhan was tough in terms of results, but we are still in a good position,” said Hungarian Michelisz. “The main goal is to learn from these races, and to find out what we can do better if we are again in a position to carry a lot of extra weight compared to the others. The focus for me is to look ahead to the following race in Suzuka.”
WTCR JVCKENWOOD Race of Japan takes place from 26-28 October. Michelisz won at the Japanese Grand Prix venue when the World Touring Car Championship visited in 2013, albeit on Suzuka East layout.
