Bitter Portugal for BMW Team Italy-Spain

The city track of Porto revealed to be unfavourable for BMW Team Italy-Spain cars, despite the eighth place in qualifying scored by Zanardi made the team hopeful for the two races.

During initial stages of the first manche, a contact with Agusto Farfus costed several positions to the Italian driver. Pushed to backward positions, Zanardi crossed the finish line in sixteenth position, compromising in this way the outcome of race two as well, since the starting grid of the WTCC second manche is obtained by the standing of race one. In the afternoon, the Bolognese driver concluded in fifteenth position.

Troubled weekend for Felix Porteiro who experienced far more problems than expected in finding the right feeling with the track. The young Spaniard finished race one seventeenth and eighteenth race two.

The next round of the World Touring Car Championship will be held next 29 of July at the Swedish circuit of Anderstorp.
