WTCR Free Practice 2 Hungaroring: Azcona's confidence builds as Guerrieri goes fastest again

17.10.2020: Esteban Guerrieri backed up his impressive pace in first free practice by also setting the pace in the second session at WTCR Race of Hungary. Driving an ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport Honda Civic Type R TCR, Guerrieri jumped to the top of the tim

Esteban Guerrieri backed up his impressive pace in first free practice by also setting the pace in the second session at WTCR Race of Hungary.



Driving an ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport Honda Civic Type R TCR, Guerrieri jumped to the top of the times early in the 30-minute session at a still-wet Hungaroring, only for Mikel Azcona to go faster in his Zengő Motorsport CUPRA Leon Competición. But Guerrieri had more speed to find and set a better time of 2m05.591s to get back on top. Azcona, who was also second fastest in the morning session, was 0.339s off Guerrieri’s benchmark.



Spaniard Azcona was encouraged by his free practice pace. “Very good start to the weekend in these tricky conditions,” he said. “The weather is changeable, but I’m happy and feel confident for qualifying. I feel confident in the wet conditions and we can improve in qualifying.”



Guerrieri’s team-mate Néstor Girolami continued his strong recovery from his big crash at the Slovakia Ring last Sunday to go third fastest, as once again four customer racing brands filled the top 10 places on Goodyear’s wet-weather tyres.



Local hero Attila Tassi made it three Hondas in the top four, ahead of fastest WTCR Rookie Driver award contender Gilles Magnus in his Comtoyou Racing Audi RS 3 LMS. Luca Engstler was sixth fastest for Engstler Hyundai N Liqui Moly Racing Team, with King of WTCR Norbert Michelisz seventh fastest at his home circuit driving a BRC Hyundai N LUKOIL Squadra Corse-entered i30 N TCR.



Nathanaël Berthon was eighth in his Comtoyou DHL Team Audi Sport entry ahead of the first of the Lynk & Co 03 TCRs, driven by Yvan Muller. Tiago Monteiro completed the top 10 in his Honda.



Thed Björk was P11 for Cyan Performance, ahead of Goodyear #FollowTheLeader Yann Ehrlacher and Gabriele Tarquini (Hyundai). Tom Coronel was P14 in his Comtoyou DHL Team Audi Sport entry, with Santiago Urrutia (Cyan Performance Lynk & Co) in P15.



Hungarian Bence Boldizs was in P16 for Zengő Motorsport, while the wildcard entries of Luca Filippi (Team Mulsanne Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce TCR by Romeo Ferraris) and Jose Manuel Sapag (Target Competition Hyundai) were P19 and P21 respectively. As in the first session, they sandwiched Nico Gruber’s Engstler Hyundai N Liqui Moly Racing Team entry on his first weekend in the WTCR.



Qualifying for WTCR Race of Hungary takes place at 15h30 local time.
