Wally Edgar Chevrolet - Chevy CRUZE WTTC Race Team Runs This Weekend In Germany

CHEVROLET team eager to win in GERMANY - driver & manufacturers lead at stake.
Sept. 2, 2010 - PRLog -- The CHEVROLET team is facing the most difficult racetrack. Never has a Chevrolet car  managed to win a WTCC race at Oschersleben, Germany. And yet the team comes to Germany with the strongest determination to keep the lead in both the Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ championships. In view of the German event, Chevrolet spent three days testing in Magny-Cours.
“We have prepared well, and the test we made in Magny-Cours a couple of weeks ago was very useful to further fine-tune some technical options,” explained the championship leader Yvan Muller, the only CHEVROLET driver who won in Oschersleben, in 2007 when he was driving for SEAT.

CHEVROLET MOTORSPORT manager Eric Nève added: “For the first time we enter the final part of the season as leader of both championships. We are clearly determined to do well. Taking into account the transport times to Japan and China, the calendar is going to be extremely tight from now up until the end of the season. This is why it was extremely important to use the summer weeks to continue working and advancing in the development of the CRUZE, and I am very happy with the work done so far by the team.”

Chevrolet WTCC drivers Alain Menu and Yvan Muller will take part in the 200 Km of Buenos Aires, a round of the Argentine TC2000 Championship, on November 7th.
Muller and Menu will be at the wheel of Chevrolet Vectra cars run by the Chevrolet Elaion team, teaming-up with Guillermo Ortelli and Christian Ledesma respectively.

Chevrolet WTCC drivers have already taken part in the event; Menu won in 2006 and finished on the podium in 2007, 2008 and 2009, while Muller will make his first appearance.

Wayne Brannon, CEO of CHEVROLET EUROPE commented: “For a global brand like Chevrolet, it is particularly positive to build bridges between the continents. This is true for motorsports porgrammes as in any other area. We are glad that the cooperation between our WTCC and TC2000 teams is going on this year too and we are sure that the presence of two great drivers like Alain and Yvan will be a plus for our brand in Argentina.”
