WTCC Salzburgring - “Running On Track”

The first edition of the YOKOHAMA “Running on Track” event took place at WTCC Salzburgring last weekend.

Over 40 people including WTCC Drivers Tom Chilton, James Nash, Stefano D’Aste, Pasquale di Sabatino among others, together with engineers, sponsors, mechanics, journalists and many others involved in the organization of the World Touring Car Championship took part in the one lap (4.2km) around the Salzburgring.  Other WTCC drivers and members of the organisation also cheered their colleagues from the comfort of bicycles and golf carts.

The event planned to be continued at other tracks around the World Touring Car Championship hopes to offer the WTCC Family and everybody connected with it a fun, ecological, competitive event that brings people together in Friendship and Sportsmanship.

In Salzburgring, the first 25 to cross the line were presented with certificates by Mr Susumu Watanabe, Chief Engineer for WTCC of the Yokohama Rubber Company.

The next “Running on track” will be held at WTCC Portimao (Portugal) on Friday 1st June at 19.00hrs.
