So round two hasn’t got off to the best of starts with rain cancelling the test session yesterday. Today’s qualifying session has been delayed by an hour as a result. As far as TV times are concerned here, this is the schedule for UK viewers (those in continental Europe get a bit more live coverage). The two races are back to back.
Qualifying 11:45 BST Eurosport/Eurosport HD (highlights)
Race 1 16:00 BST Eurosport/Eurosport HD
Race 2 17:00 BST Eurosport/Eurosport HD
I’m hoping for the other sessions there will be live commentary on the WTCC website as was the case at Monza.
Michel Nykjaer takes his first WTCC win and also the first for NIKA. He also maintains the record like we had at the Chinese Grand Prix until a few years ago where there is yet to be a repeat winner at the Race of Morocco.
I don’t know why they bother having a lot of those chicanes when they all cut them anyway and there was too much time behind the safety car I agree. The racing was actually very good for that circuit though and a bit better than the wet races at Monza, as far as street circuits go Pau was a lot better.
One thing the safety car did do in the second race was keep Oriola at the front and stop another boring Muller victory where he gets past everyone and then disappears off down the road! It’s also the first event since the 2010 Race of Spain where RML haven’t won a race.
