After a two months break, FIA WTCC is about to make its debut in United States, more precisely in California, at the circuit of Sonoma, where the ninth round of the season will take place this coming weekend.
Alberto Cerqui: "Sonoma is going to be a new circuit for the majority of teams and drivers which will put everyone virtually on the same starting point.
The recent reduction of 20kg in BMW's minimum weight should allow us to be more competitive on the Californian up and downhills: I studied a lot the circuit at the simulator and I liked it since the beginning as it features some particularly technical sectors where it is possible to make the difference. Overtaking chances are not missing therefore I believe fans will enjoy two interesting races".
