Cyan Racing, explained: “We have been able to complete our program according to
the plans that we had and without any serious problem until now.

more stages: “The development phase is still in its initial stages,
they are our foundation for our assault on the WTCC. We have most of the
development work ahead, but it is a prize to begin our program
