There was also champagne pouring and bad luck on the Zengő’s touring weekend

Mikel Azcona delivered the first podium spot in the WTCR season and also did well in the PURE ETCR series, but was eliminated in the electric car race, winning another resounding.

The Zengőes were on a real emotional roller coaster ride behind us, as in addition to serious successes, the team was also disappointed, which in addition to the WTCR races was also interested in the electric touring car race (Pure ETCR).

Azcona delivered the first podium

In the Motorland Aragon, the Hungarian touring car team was under great pressure, as on the one hand the Cupra and Mikel Azcona and Jordi Gené are really at home on this track, the former won the first race victory of Zengő Motorsport here last year.

The free practice was better for the very fast Azcona as well as Huff, but on the time trial the British driver fell back, so only the Spaniard had a chance to make Zengő Zoli’s dream come true and win a race again this year. Based on the timer, Azcona could start from the second place, ie from the first row, in the reverse grid race.

The Spanish driver eventually took second place in the race as well, making him the first resounding driver on the WTCR podium, plus there was still a second race left at the time where he could start from second place. This, on the other hand, didn’t go really well, he got stuck at the start due to a parking brake failure and ended up finishing 12th in the race. Huff brought the Cupra into the top ten, Bence Boldizs finished 16th and Gené had to stand out due to a puncture.

Echoing victory in Pure ETCR

Winning the first race, Mikel Azcona got off to a great start and also led, but in the first super final he spun in a battle with Farfus and slipped off the gravel bed. His team-mate, Mattias Ekström, made the most of his Spanish elimination, leading the other Cupra ERacker to produce an almost perfect weekend, not only winning the race but jumping to the top overall.

Of the two other drivers in Zengő Motorsport, Dani Nagy held third place until the end, but ran out in the final corners, while Jordi Gené also did not swim the race without scratches.
