Curitiba

Finishing second in the second race, Dutch BMW racing driver Tom Coronel ended up on the podium right away during the opening weekend of the 2011 FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC). In the first race at the Autodromo Nactional de Curitiba in Brazil, Coronel finished fourth. In the second race, he had a perfect start and he led for many laps, but he finally had to take second place behind Alain Menu. Good results for the 38-year old Dutch driver, who had his first races with the BMW 320 TC with the new 1.6 litre turbocharged engine this weekend. “These are the results that give ROAL Motorsport, BMW and myself the confidence that we need for the races to come. The next event will be at the circuit of Zolder in Belgium next month. These are my home races in this championship, so that is promising quite something,” says Coronel.
