After eight years and two repeat championships while being on track for a third, Chevrolet has announced that it will leave the World Touring Car Championship scene at the end of the 2012 racing season. According to a press release, the decision was made after “a strategic review of Chevrolet’s motorsport and marketing programs.”
This move will leave drivers Rob Huff, Alain Menu and Yvan Muller out of a job, along with team racing partner RML. It also takes the Chevrolet Cruze out of the motorsports scene. But hey, at least fans still have Corvette Racing.
