The test with the 2011 CRUZE was aimed at preparing the two final events of the season, focusing mainly on brakes, which are to play a key role in Japan and Macau, where CHEVROLET and Muller will defend their respective leads in the Manufacturers’
In parallel, the 2011 CRUZE completed an impressive 1020 kms without any technical issue. A very encouraging outcome for the first long test of the new car and engine.
Rob Huff commented: “This was a very positive test. The new engine is responding well and we are exactly where we wanted to be. The driveability of the car is really excellent, thanks to the much better torque of the turbo engine.”
And Yvan Muller echoed: “It was the first time I was driving the 2011 CRUZE with the new engine and I was very positively impressed. We still have a lot of work to do, but we have a very good basis to build upon and we are working in the right direction.”
In other WTTC events CHEVROLET AND RML TAKE the British Touring Circuit Championship.
Jason Plato won two out of the three races of the British Touring Car Championship’
After claiming pole position on Saturday, Plato drove his CHEVROLET CRUZE car to two consecutive lights to flag victories on Brands Hatch Indy circuit to be 2010 BTCC champion even before the day’s third race.
This was CHEVROLET’s first title in BTCC and Plato’s second, nine years after his first championship for Vauxhall. His Race 2 win also enabled him to match Andy Rouse’s long standing record of 60 victories in British touring cars.
