The WTCC will have it’s first outing in North America this weekend at the Sonoma Raceway in California. Surprisingly, they’re actually using a the Full Course which is 0.3 miles longer than the IndyCar configuration! I don’t know when the WTCC will learn that shorter tracks and more laps are better?
There are two new drivers for this race, Italian Felice Tedeschi was going to drive the second Proteam BMW until he totalled it the first test session, he won’t take any further part in the weekend. Fresh from the BTCC, Robb Holland will be in for Pasquale di Sabatino at Bamboo Engineering.
Alex MacDowall topped the first test session yesterday by doing a 1:48.2, too long a lap?
This race will be available in HD, I still don’t know why Brazil wasn’t which was disappointing.
