What began as a one-off collaboration has become a habit of work before the match, usual the calendars of the fia WTCC and World Rallycross. James Thompson goes back in the Chevrolet Cruze RML TC1 team Münnich Motorsport at the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo on the occasion of the eighth appointment of the season of the World Touring car. The british pilot returns to replace the pattern and team rider René Münnich since this goes to the event in Montreal of the World of Rallycross, a category in which it competes with a Seat Ibiza RX new creation.
In this aspect, it should be noted that James Thompson has played even more evidence that the own René Münnich as that of the seven citations contested to date in the WTCC, the british pilot has taken part in four, being his fifth appearance which will be in Argentina. In addition, the results are accompanying as James Thompson has managed to score points in three races getting two sixth positions as best results, something that is very to keep in mind with a Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1 that is far from the level of the cars developed and supported by official teams.
Be that as it may, James Thompson has a great chance of
to get a good result in a trail of fond memories for the double
champion of the BTCC. However, Thompson has competed in all the races
disputed by the WTCC to date in the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo. Though
in the debut of the track, not had a good weekend, in 2014 got
to achieve the points in the two races with the Lada Granta 1.6 T. With the
Lada Vesta things don’t go as well in 2015, although at that point the relationship with Lada Sport was already rarefied.
