Oriola ready to Buriram despite injury
Pepe Oriola comes back to work this weekend at the Chang International Circuit in Thailand, but he will race with an injury in his right foot. There are only four meetings left to close the season of the TCR International Series and the Spanish driver is fighting for the title. He is in the second position with 167 points, only one point behind the provisional leader Stefano Comini.
Oriola returns into a circuit, where he achieved a double podium last year, as he won the first race and finished 3rd in the Race 2. Now, the Spanish driver arrives “touched”. Although he has received a medical discharge, he hopes to do it well in the Thai track, despite the pain he still feels in his right foot.
I will do everything possible to get a positive result in Buriram. Last year I was the fastest driver in this track. Now I got injured in my foot by the fall of a weight while I was training for the Thai races. Despite I have received a medical discharge and I can accelerate, I still feeling an intense pain in my foot, said Pepe Oriola, who will try to achieve a good result this weekend. The championship is very competitive but my goal is to score points in both races of Thailand to maintain my options for the title of the TCR, even with my injured foot, added Pepe Oriola, who will drive the Craft-Bamboo LUKOIL Seat Leon.
