Menu and Huff Give Another Double Win to the Cruzes in Porto!    

The team leaves Portugal with the maximum tally of points


PORTO, 3rd July 2011 – Chevrolet and the RML team made it another triumphant day today in the Race of Portugal which marked the end of the first half of the 2011 WTCC season. A 1-2-3 in Race 1, won by Alain Menu, and 1-2 in Race 2, with Rob Huff in the top position, mean Chevrolet has won 11 out of 12 races this year and has a very comfortable lead in both championships.

In Race 1, Alain Menu made perfect use of the pole position and pulled away to take a flag to flag win whilst Yvan Muller and Rob Huff put on a show with their fight for second. Race 2 was definitely more lively, with Muller and Huff battling for victory. Contact could not be avoided when the Brit overtook the Frenchman at mid distance of the race, but the stewards saw no reason to launch any investigation on what can be seen as a normal racing incident that sometimes happens when two great drivers are fighting for the championship. Alain Menu finished 6th.

The Cruzes are now heading back to the UK, for what can be considered their home race, as the next round will take place in Donington, not far from RML’s base in Wellingborough.
