Two More Wins For The Cruzes In Hungary!  

Menu wins Race 1, Muller and Huff make it 1-2 in Race 2

 

BUDAPEST, 5th June 2011 – The RML Chevrolet Cruzes brought home two more wins, as they dominated both races in Budapest, where the WTCC raced for the first time in front of an impressive and enthusiastic crowd. Alain Menu took a flag to flag win in Race 1, while Yvan Muller and Rob Huff scored a 1-2 in the second race. With these results, both Chevrolet and Rob Huff stay firmly in command of the Manufacturers’ and Drivers’ overall standings.

In Race 1, starting from the pole, Alain Menu produced a flawless drive to take a flag to flag win, while Huff and Muller finished 4th and 5th, respectively. Race 2 was much more chaotic,  because of a torrential downpour and the Race Director red flagged the race for half an hour. At the re-start, Yvan Muller took the lead of the race to record his first win of the season while Rob Huff drove to a sensational second place, ending the weekend in the best way possible after only qualifying in 12th . Unfortunately Alain Menu recorded a DNF due to a collision with Tom Coronel on lap 4 after looking good for another good haul of points.
