Rob Huff dominates the first day of the test WTCC in Monza


Rob Huff has had a strong start to the season of the WTCC
after scoring the best time on the first day of the tests in Monza. The pilot
british, which debuts this season on a Citroën C-Elysée team
Münnich Motorsport has been the fastest both in the morning session as in the
in the evening. Finally, Huff has closed the day with a record of 1:52.888 and
with a balance of 76 laps. For the moment, the TC1 Citroën has been shown
as the rival to beat, the whole time Mehdi Bennani and Tom Chilton have finished
with the second and the fourth-best record
in Monza.

Between the three Citroën C-Elysée has been cast as one of the
few ‘rookies’ that will be the season 2017 of the WTCC, the whole time Yann
Ehlacher has been third with the Lada Vesta TC1 RC Motorsport
. The young
French pilot has shown that comes to make war, and although the role of
nephew of Yvan Muller -who is present at the test with a Volvo – you can play in
against, what is certain is that you have started your new project with momentum. Of
fact. Ehlacher has finished ahead of all the Volvo S60 Polestar TC1,
the entire time that the car swedes have been completed in the wake of Tom Chilton.


In fact, among the drivers of Volvo’s Néstor Girolami has been
the faster
. The argentinian driver has set the fastest time of 1:54.277,
record reached in the morning session, and that Yvan Muller and Thed Björk have not
able to improve during the four hours of work on the track that had the
riders in the afternoon. The top ten have completed their part John Filippi
with the last of the Citroën
, the japanese Ryo Michigami as the best pilot of
Honda and Tom Coronel at the wheel of the Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1 team ROAL

All in all, Tom Coronel has only been able to play the session
, as a business commitment prevented him from arriving before the
circuit of Monza. This fact has been taken advantage of by ROAL Motorsport to
let Alberto Cerqui was completed by the morning a total of 12 laps
to make the first adjustments in the Chevrolet Cruze team. The Italian
he has shot very slow. All in all, Colonel has managed to finish by
in front of the last three Honda Civic WTCC in the hands of Norbert Michelisz,
Tiago Monteiro and Aurélien Panis, the only pilot of Zengö Motorsport to
despite the confirmation of Daniel Nagy
