Rob Huff: “we’re Still in the fight for the WTCC”


Seven pilots arrived at the sixth round of the WTCC in full fight for the title. However, the two runs of the contest in the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo accounted for a hard blow for the options of at least two of them. One of these riders had a weekend to forget in Argentina was Rob Huff. The briton finished seventh in the opening race and ninth in the sleeve main, picking up a swag of points far away from the joined riders like Tiago Monteiro, Norbert Mcihesliz or Mehdi Bennani. All in all, the champion of the WTCC in 2012 has not given up.

Huff has insisted when it has just started the summer break that can still fight for winning the title of the WTCC for the second time in his career despite dragging a deficit of 65 points, with Tiago Monteiro. However, the british know that there are still four weekends ahead in which every rider can add up to 60 points per appointment. This fact, coupled with the large differences that can occur between the title contenders with seven drivers fighting on a regular basis for the victory, invite Rob Huff to keep intact their hopes.

Although Rob Huff has not managed to win yet with the Citroën C-Elysée, the private pilot of the team Münnich Motorsport has come to add up to 40 points in one weekend. For this reason, Huff have a clear: “we Took some points in Argentina, while for example Nicky Catsburg not finished both races. Tiago scored a few points more than we would have liked, but the victories of Michelisz and Ehrlacher in the two races were a blessing. Now there is a long space until the next race and we need to recharge our batteries, but we are still in contention for the WTCC and we can do it“.
