Loeb's C-Elysee fastest at Valencia
Sebastien Loeb set the fastest time in his C-Elysee at Valencia in the WTCC official test. Nine-time world rally champion ended ahead of the two Honda Civic cars of Gabriele Tarquini and Tiago Monteiro.
Tom Chilton and Hugo Valente hit the track at the wheel of the new Chevrolet RML Cruze run by ROAL Motorsport and Campos Racing respectively. Despite an early problem with the mounting of the rear wing, that was soon solved by the teams with the help of the RML technicians, the Cruze impressed for speed and consistency considered that this was its very first test after last week’s shakedown.
Newcomer John Filippi took also part in the test at the wheel of the Campos Racing TC2 Seat León, while Citroën’s Ma Qing Hua tested on Thursday before handing the car to Loeb.
