WestCoast Racing aims for podium in Barcelona

Publicerad 19 september 2019, 17.29 av WestCoast Racing.

The penultimate round of TCR Europe is coming up this weekend and WestCoast Racing turns to Barcelona aiming to repeat its podium there from last year.

This season has not promised the results the squad has been hoping for with Gianni Morbidelli 14th and Olli Kangas 25th in the championship. However the team has seen an improved performance during the second half of the season it now hopes to convert into podium spots in the final rounds of the season.
”The results has neither been close to what we have been hoping for or an absolutely true reflection of the potential in the team, our cars and drivers,” team manager Dick Jönsson Wigroth explains. ”We have lacked some qualifying speed which has hurt our chances on the races badly. On race pace we feel we are up there but we just haven’t managed to capitalise on it. As we are returning to Barcelona we are aiming for the podium Unfortunately the Balance of Performance also works a bit against us since we have to push really hard just to advance for Q1 leaving less in reserve in Q2 than other teams. However we do feel we have improved a lot during the last couple of rounds and are pushing hard to finish off strongly.”

The race weekend at Barcelona starts with free practice on Friday followed bu qualifying and race 1 on Saturday and the final race of the weekend on Sunday.
