Vervisch’s Nordschleife force is strong in WTCR
Frédéric Vervisch will be one to watch when the 2021 WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup gets underway at the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife next month.
Vervisch, one of four drivers competing in the WTCR in Goodyear-equipped second-generation Audi RS 3 LMS, is a four-time WTCR podium finisher on the 25.378-kilometre German track.
He scored the first two podiums of his WTCR career on the Norschleife in 2018 with third in Race 2 and second in Race 3. The following season, the Belgian claimed a brace of seconds in Race 2 and Race 3.
“Obviously I’m quite experienced there now,” said the Comtoyou Racing ace. “I drove there with different cars and we always had good results. It’s a very difficult track, very demanding and quite particular but very exciting.”
