Rounds 5 & 6 – WEC 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps – 4 / 6 May 2017


PREVIEW


Legendary Belgian track welcomes back the TCR drivers

The third race meeting of the 2017 TCR International Series takes place this weekend on the demanding racetrack of Spa-Francorchamps in the Belgian region of the Ardennes; a legendary circuit in motorsport history.
For the second consecutive year the series runs at Spa as a support event to the 6 Hours race, the second round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.

In 2016 Honda and Volkswagen shared the honours, with Aku Pellinen and Jean-Karl Vernay claiming one victory apiece.



On Saturday afternoon in the first race, Pellinen led from lights to flag in a WestCoast Racing Honda Civic and led home the SEAT León cars of Pepe Oriola and pole-sitter Dušan Borković .

On the Sunday morning, the second race was dominated by the trio of Leopard Racing WRT Volkswagen Golf GTi cars, with Vernay winning ahead of Stefano Comini and Antti Buri.

The event also marked the debut in TCR of two 1.6-litre Peugeot 308 Racing Cup cars run by the Sébastien Loeb Racing and driven by Jimmy Clairet and Grégory Guilvert.



Just like last year, track activity will begin on Thursday, with two 30-minute Free Practice sessions; Qualifying will take place Friday at lunchtime, followed by the first Race in the late afternoon. Race 2 will start on Saturday morning.
