Andreas Pfister’s tenure of third place in the FIA European Touring Car Cup Single Make Trophy category has come under threat from Mato Homola, who drew level with the German following Qualifying at Brno yesterday.

While Pfister, the winner of race two at Circuit Paul Ricard in June, was fifth quickest in the SMT class, Homola scored three points by going fastest of all and is now level with Pfister on 36 points prior to today’s pair of 10-lap races.

The fastest three drivers in Qualifying in each of the four ETCC categories score points on a scale of 3-2-1. By going second fastest in the SMT division yesterday, Dušan Borković’s championship lead over Peter Fulín increases to 13 points. Click here to see how the ETCC drivers will line-up for race one.

Christjohannes Schreiber will start ETCC Race of Vila Real defending a slender one-point lead in the battle to be crowned FIA European Touring Car Cup champion for 2017.

ETCC Race of Vila Real is set for a live television extravaganza with TVI showing both races as they happen on several digital platforms including TVI Player, TVI24.iol.pt and Facebook.com/tvi24.

Top Portuguese driver Fábio Mota will be hoping to make a big impact on the streets of Vila Real this weekend as he looks to build on his FIA European Touring Car Cup podium double last time out in Germany. This is what the LEIN Racing SEAT driver had to say ahead of his home race.
