Great podium for Pepe Oriola that allows him to establish himself in the leadership of the TCR South America

The Spanish driver, who has won the team title with the W2 Pro GP team, consolidates himself at the head of the overall drivers and will play victory in the last meeting in Uruguay

An intelligent strategy that Pepe Oriola has starred in this afternoon, which allows him to continue dreaming of the title of the TCR South America. After signing a podium in Cabalén, Oriola remains at the head of the overall drivers, waiting to face the last two races of the season, scheduled for December 18th and 19th, in the town of Concepción (Uruguay).

 You could not ask for more excitement in a championship than he has already won the team title, together with his teammate Raphael Reis, for W2 Pro GP.

Oriola has been one of the fastest drivers over the weekend, however in qualifying yesterday he kept a more conservative attitude to keep his options with the grid reversed. Hence, he got the 7th fastest time. And the strategy has come out to him to ask of mouth, because in the first scoring race he has started 3rd, striking an accurate blow in the first turns.

In this way, after the traffic light went out, the Spanish driver removed the stickers from his rivals, to take the lead in the race. However, Urrutia won the position in the second lap, although he was able to stay behind his rival, closing all possible spaces to Sapag and Baptista for 17 laps, to secure a place on the podium (2nd).

With no time to rest, the second round was played, where Oriola started 7th. After improving a position, he has placed himself at the wheel of Sapag and his most direct rival Rodrigo Baptista. A competitiveness that has also moved into the front positions with exciting battles. The Spaniard has maintained his composure and has crossed under the checkered flag in a creditable 5th position that allows him to consolidate himself at the top of the classification, with a distance of +13 points, to continue dreaming of a title that will be played in the last round of this championship.

“It is clear that the championships are won with a head, so the most important thing has been to score points in both races and maintain the overall lead. This has been the great reward in Argentina, where I have been very conservative, studying my rivals well, but, above all, keeping the tires to avoid suffering as happened in the free practice on Saturday.


I am happy because I have increased the distance with my closest rivals, but there is still one last obstacle to overcome. Now it is time to enjoy the team victory and it is a pride to be part of this great family such as W2 Pro GP", recognizes Pepe Oriola, who will stay in Argentina preparing the last meeting of the season, which is scheduled for the 18th and December 19th, in Concepción (Uruguay)
