TCR Europe / TCR Benelux- Maxime Potty clinches a podium once again in the Golf GTI TCR

Maxime Potty’s (B) purple patch of form has continued in the TCR Europe. In the third round of the season at Spa-Francorchamps (B), Potty finished third in the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR – his second podium finish of the year. “It was a very entertaining race that ended better than it started,” said Potty.



“It’s a shame that I made a mistake at the start, because the pace was really good.” At his home race, the 19-year-old had secured a good starting position in qualifying with third on the grid.



When the lights turned green, Potty was overtaken by some competitors, but battled back from eighth place and to cross the finish line behind the two Audi drivers Gilles Magnus (B) and Santiago Urrutia (ROU).
 




In the second race, guest entry Ashley Sutton (GB) was the best Volkswagen driver. The British touring car champion of 2017, who has already competed in a TCR Europe race in the Golf GTI TCR last year, drove a strong race and finished fourth.



For Potty, things did not go according to plan in the second race of the weekend. Although the local hero fought hard for points, he fell back to 24th place in the last lap with technical problems and a time penalty for a jump start.



In the TCR Benelux, which was again held in Spa together with the TCR Europe, Potty took third and seventh place. The TCR Europe continues on 13 and 14 July with the 4th round on Red Bull Ring (A).
