TCR South America finished friday with five cars separated by 0.052s at Termas de Río Hondo

Termas de Río Hondo, August 26, 2022 – The first day of official practice for the most important event in the brief history of TCR South America lived up to all expectations with no less than five cars in a gap of 0.052 s and ten within the same second.

At the end of the day, the team that smiled the most was Squadra Martino, who got 1-2 with Rosso/Rissati and Casagrande/Guerrieri, separated by just 0.005s. Reis/Llaver’s #77 CUPRA, Aizza/Azcona’s #35 Hyundai and Pezzini/Okulovich’s #7 Lynk & Co. completed the top 5.

Barrio/Camilo’s rookie Toyota Corolla #32 closed the session in eighth time, 0.517 of 1:49:500, set by Juan Ángel Rosso.

In the morning, in the training reserved for guests and rookies, there was the best time of the day achieved by the WTCR international, Esteban Guerrieri with a time of 1:49.464.

Tomorrow will be time for the second free practice session and qualifying. The grid is determined by the sum of the best time of the holder and the guest.

With 20 cars on the grid, 40 drivers of five nationalities and eight different manufacturers, the Termas de Hondo Endurance date will begin at 11:00 on Sunday with a duration of 33 laps or 60 minutes.

STATEMENT

“It was a great first official training session, I didn’t think we were going to go so fast, I was a bit pessimistic. My partner did very well in the guest training and the car improved throughout the day and we saw the potential we have.”
Juan Angel Rosso

“It was a good day. I was in the guest training first and then we changed some things to improve more. In the first session I went out to calibrate the car and then Fabio got on so that he can gain confidence with the circuit”.
Esteban Guerrieri

“Training has been positive and we still have things to improve, in terms of tire performance. The weekend started well and we will see if it ends well too”.
