Pepe Oriola Sepang TCR races review

03.10.2016: The Spanish driver was fourth before he bumped into Homola in the last lap in Sepang, getting out of the points




The Spanish driver was fourth before he bumped into Homola in the last lap in Sepang, getting out of the points



Pepe Oriola: “I´m going to work hard so that James Nash and Craft- Bamboo LUKOIL proclaim champions of the TCR”


Pepe Oriola got out of the points at the second race in Sepang. It was a treacherous session which started behind the safety car due to Pastorelli´s Ford Focus engine blowup during the formation lap. This inconvenient delayed the race since the oil had to be cleaned from the track.



The Spanish driver driver started in 9th position in the reverse grid which soon paved the way for Grachev to scale up positions behind the ´safety car´. In this way, he placed 6th on lap six, after overtaking the Russian driver and Vernay.



But more trouble he got with Matt Homola, with whom he encountered a tough contest. Both pilots bumped into each other leaving Oriola in the worst position since he got out of the track leaving him in 14th position.



“It has not been a great day. I had big trouble to reach the front positions, since I was left to start really behind. I´ve tried my best and risk myself on the last lap without knowing that Comini was awarded a penalty.



If I had known that I would have been more precautious. Even though the title is complicated, I will work hard for the team during this year last two races, so that James Nash and Craft-Bamboo LUKOIL proclaim champions of the TCR”, stated Pepe Oriola, who already awaits to face this year last races in the house of one of his main sponsors: Cali Group Macao, which will take place November 19th and 20th.
