POSITIVE OUTCOME FOR THIRD FIA ETCC

The third edition of the FIA European Touring Car Cup was placed in the archives with very positive outcome.

38 drivers from 12 countries took part in the event at the wheel of cars built from 12 different car Manufacturers and delivered two exciting races plenty of action and overtaking before 10,000 spectators.

In spite of the fact that the cars coming from the various national championships differed in a number of technical details, the FIA Touring Car Bureau managed to find a good balance in performance.

The evidence is that in all the three classes cars from different Manufacturers proved to be equally competitive.

With a field of 26, the Super 2000 class established a new record for the ETCC. Seven Manufacturers - Honda, SEAT, Chevrolet, BMW, Toyota, Alfa Romeo and Mercedes - were represented in the top-14 of the qualifying session, while both races and the final results saw three different cars on top: alternatively SEAT, Honda, Chevrolet and BMW.

In the Super Production class Honda, Opel and BMW claimed the top three positions in Race 1, while Ford, Citroen and Volkswagen filled the podium in the new Super 1600 class.

The date for the fourth edition of the FIA European Touring Car Cup has been already fixed on 12th October 2008; the venue will be communicated later.
