Coronel unveils his Chevrolet livery
One month ahead of the 2014 WTCC season opener, Tom Coronel unveiled the livery of his Roal Motorsport’s Chevrolet car in the new TC1 spec. Tom will not yet participate in this week’s official WTCC test in Valencia, but will race in the Taiwanese Super 2000 championship this weekend with a BMW E90 320si.
Off course it is unfortunate not being able to put the first miles on the Roal Motorsport Chevrolet in Valencia this week. – said Coronel – Only days ago RML finished production of the first two cars based on the new TC1 specs and my chassis will probably not be ready before the end of next week. Beginning of April I will most likely drive the first meters in the car as part of a short shakedown on the Adria track. After that the car will immediately be transported to Morocco, where the first WTCC races for the 2014 season will take place. A tight schedule, but there is no other option. I’m already really satisfied that I will at least compete in the WTCC this year, again with Roal Motorsport and with the car that won the championship the past couple of year, now in the new TC1 specification. Which means an increased output to 380hp, +80 hp, new technology, a wider appearance and more aerodynamics. I would really like to thank my existing ánd new sponsors for their support to make this happen!
