Argentina welcomes the FIA WTCC Race weekend
14 Jul 2017

The FIA World Touring Car Championship, with the Japanese premium tyre manufacturer YOKOHAMA as Official Tyre supplier, races in Argentina’s Termas de Rio Hondo circuit on Sunday.

If one considers the former World Champion Jose Maria Lopez’s words in relation to overtaking opportunities all eyes should be on Turn 5 (breaking deep) and Turn 13, his favourite places and coming from a sensational driver, his compatriots, Nestor Girolami and Esteban Guerrieri, now carrying the baton for Argentina could do well taking such advice.

The transatlantic logistics efforts took place swiftly and the teams have been preparing carefully as they embark on the second half of the season. The Yokohama Motorsport support team, has also been keeping busy to ensure, as always, the highest level of service to all teams in the Championship.  

With realistic chances for at least 7 drivers to continue dreaming on the World title, it is probably one of the most open and exciting Championships in recent years. Good luck to all!
