Nagy’s mixed ETCC fortunes

Nagy’s mixed ETCC fortunes

30/06/2017 12:00

It was a case of differing fortunes for Norbert Nagy when the FIA European Touring Car Cup visited Portugal last week.

Following the high of his pole position and second place in Race 1, Nagy crashed heavily in Race 2, inflicting substantial damage to his Zengő Motorsport SEAT in the process.

The Hungarian youngster explained: “Race 1 was very, very fun. Of course, it was not a good thing that I lost the first position, but all laps were very, very crazy so I’m very happy with those points and with the pole position points.

“In the second race my start was very, very good, better than the Hondas…finally. After that, [Mladen] Lalušic’s start was very bad and I couldn’t overtake him because the gap was not enough and a lot of cars overtook me. After the right-hander there were two more cars near me and the only chance to overtake was if I took the left-hander on the right side but it was very dusty and that’s why I crashed my car.”

Petr Fulín ensured he was crowned the 2017 FIA European Touring Car Cup winner with a comfortable home victory in the second encounter at ETCC Race of Most in the Czech Republic earlier today (Sunday).

ETCC trophy winner Petr Fulín, Plamen Kralev and Norbert Nagy attended the post-race press conference at FIA ETCC Race of Most. This is what they said.

Petr Fulín ensured he was crowned champion of the 2017 FIA European Touring Car Cup by scoring a comfortable home victory in the second encounter of the FIA ETCC Race of Most in the Czech Republic on Sunday.

Bulgarian Plamen Kralev scored his maiden victory in the FIA European Touring Car Cup by climbing from fourth on the grid to win the first encounter of the FIA ETCC Race of Most in the Czech Republic on Sunday morning.
