WTCC drivers honoured at Sonoma

23.06.2012: WTCC drivers Gabriele Tarquini, Tiago Monteiro and James Nash

WTCC drivers Gabriele Tarquini, Tiago Monteiro and James Nash were honoured as special guests yesterday night during the Children’s Charities Grand Marshall’s Banquet that took place in Sonoma’s Cline Cellars.


A short movie plenty of action was shown to introduce WTCC to hundredths of guests that included NASCAR team owners, drivers and sponsors.


Then Steve Page, President of Sonoma’s Infineon Raceway, called the three drives on the stage and asked them a few questions about their feeling to race in the States and their first impressions of the racetrack.


Later on Tarquini, Monteiro and Nash were asked to pose for souvenir pictures by a number of guests.
