Coming as no surprise to anyone, the Chevrolet Cruze World Touring Car Championship racing team once again made the entire competition its fodder (for lack of a better word), sweeping the first race of WTCC Round 6 in Austria. Taking the top spot for Chevy in race was Rob Huff, followed by Yvan Muller and then Alain Menu, all finishing without a hitch.
Race two, on the other hand, featured some degree of surprise, as Menu didn’t finish the race due to a tire puncture, while Muller found himself in the gravel on the last lap, putting his finish in 8th place. However, Huff did manage a second place finish.
The drivers continue to hold the top three positions in drivers points by a wide margin. In first we have Muller with 206. Second is Huff with 198, followed closely by Menu with 175. Chevrolet also looks to be writing up a three-peat championship, with 495 points to second-place BMW’s 338.
The next race for Team Chevy will be the Race of Portugal, Autódromo do Algarve, Portimão, 1-3 June 2012. That’s the same weekend as the Belle Isle Grand Prix, where IndyCar, Grand Am, and the SCCA Pro Challenge series will amass upon Detroit, Michigan.
