Sutton shines on the TCR European stage, Potty is runner-up in TCR Benelux

22.10.2018: TCR Europe/Benelux Podium on his debut: Ashley Sutton (GB) made a good impression in the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR in the final race of the TCR Europe season.

TCR Europe/Benelux



Podium on his debut: Ashley Sutton (GB) made a good impression in the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR in the final race of the TCR Europe season.


 The icing on the cake at his guest appearance for WestCoast Racing in Barcelona (Spain) came in the form of third place in race two. This came after Sutton had narrowly missed out on a podium in race one, when he was the best-placed driver “powered by Volkswagen” in fourth place.



In TCR Benelux, which occasionally races with TCR Europe, Maxime Potty (B) was just denied the title at the last race weekend of the season. Leading the championship coming into the final round, the Volkswagen driver was twice beaten by Jean-Karl Vernay (F, Audi), who won the title in last year’s TCR International Series with Volkswagen.



 These two results were enough to earn Vernay victory in the 2018 TCR Benelux series. In race two, Potty fought back to finish 16th after a slip-up in the opening stages of the race, which saw him drop back to 24th. However, he ultimately had to settle for the extremely respectable runner-up spot in the final standings.
