Honda announce line-up for 2017 FIA WTCC

Honda announce line-up for 2017 FIA WTCC

Tiago Monteiro, Norbert Michelisz and Ryo Michigami





Honda are pleased to announce that Tiago Monteiro, Norbert Michelisz and Ryo Michigami will form a three-driver line-up in the FIA World Touring Car Championship in 2017.

The trio will race the latest development of the Honda Civic WTCC, which has undergone a programme of continued development from Honda R&D and JAS Motorsport this winter.

For Tiago, 2016 marked the best season of his WTCC career. Having become the first Portuguese driver to lead an FIA World Championship after an early-season victory in Slovakia, he finished third in the points and was a highly-popular winner at his home event on the streets of Vila Real in June.

The 40-year-old will embark on his fifth full season with Honda in 2017, having given the Civic WTCC its race debut at Suzuka, Japan, in 2012.

Hungarian driver Norbert, 32, joined the factory Honda team in 2016 after spending three seasons in privateer Civics and twice winning the WTCC Trophy for drivers of independent teams.

He led home a famous 1-2-3 finish at Honda’s home WTCC round in Japan and finished fourth in the drivers’ championship.

Ryo made his WTCC debut in a fourth Civic at Twin Ring Motegi last year and will gain further experience of the car during winter testing.

The 43-year-old triumphed in Japan’s prestigious Super GT Championship in a Honda NSX in 2000 and will become Japan’s first full-time entrant in the WTCC.

Honda’s 2017 WTCC line-up will not feature Rob Huff, who finished sixth in last season’s points and scored a debut victory at Circuit Paul Ricard in France.

Circuito de Vila Real foi eleito o melhor circuito de rua

Circuito de Vila Real foi eleito o melhor circuito de rua

vila real 2016.jpg


Aí está o top 10:

1 - Vila Real

2 - Mónaco

3 - Macau

4 - Long Beach

5 - Adelaide

6 - Montjuic Park

7 - Pau

8 - Madonie

9 - Birmingham

10 - Las Vegas


WTCC track Vila Real voted the best

10/12/2016 06:00

Past and present FIA World Touring Car Championship street tracks Macau, Pau and Vila Real appear on Redbull.com’s list of 10 best street circuits with Vila Real topping the lot on an online fan vote.

Vila Real in northern Portugal, which hosted FIA WTCC Race of Portugal for the first time in 2015, pooled more votes than legendary Formula One venues including Adelaide, Long Beach, Monaco and Montjuïc Park.

This is Redbull.com’s Vila Real verdict: “Sir Stirling Moss described Vila Real in Portugal as one of his favourite tracks – and who are we to argue? Vila Real is a crazy rollercoaster rush through the town of the same name in the north of Portugal, which included a narrow bridge over a vertiginous ravine in its original layout. The track is still used now for the World Touring Car Championship, although unsurprisingly the bridge over the sheer drop has gone. Nonetheless, the current track maintains the spirit of the original with blind crests, next to no run-off, and some buttock-clenching corners – a bit like an urban Nordschleife.”

6 Horas de Vila Real de 1969

6 Horas de Vila Real de 1969

Relembrar as 6 Horas de Vila Real de 1969 por Ângelo Pinto da Fonseca profusamente ilustrado a preto e branco e uma imagem a cores.
(…) “ Depois da edição de 1958 o “circuito internacional” de Vila Real só regressou em 1966 e foi melhorado nos anos seguintes. Vamos deter-nos em 1969, ano em que “As 6 Horas” foram simultaneamente a prova-rainha e o teste para a pretendida integração no campeonato Mundial de marcas.”(…)

“Circuito de VILA REAL




El que nunca há assistido al Circuito de Vila Real no se puede imaginar la fiesta que supone este maravilloso fin de semana de carreras y es posible que tampoco comprenda cómo una población con poco más de 50.000 habitantes sea capaz de realizar una inversión semejante, tanto a nivel económico como humano (…)”.

Como é meu hábito, fui ler o JN no Café Clássico. 







Hoje, o tema de conversa de café, continuava a ser as corridas.  

…. Era tanta gente!… à volta do circuito, nem nos locais mais recônditos, havia um lugar para estacionar… melhor dizendo tudo servia para estacionar…era um mar de gente que por toda a parte … os mais destemidos até dos telhados viram as corridas.

Sim, não há duvida veio mais gente do que no ano passado.”

RACE PREVIEW: 20 June 2016
FIA ETCC Race of Vila Real, rounds 7/8 of 12, 24-26 June

*Double points on offer as WTCC’s official feeder series gears up for first street race
*Fulín and Richard in thrilling Super 2000 title fight, Mackschin tops S1600 Cup
*Portuguese drivers Fernandes and Mota out to impress WTCC team bosses
*Eurosport to broadcast both races live

The challenge never relents in the FIA European Touring Car Cup. Following its inaugural visit to the Nürburgring Nordschleife last month, the ETCC heads to Vila Real in northern Portugal later this week for a street racing festival with a difference.

Circuito Internacional de Vila Real, which has hosted motor racing since 1931, features a mix of tight turns, fast curves, climbs and descents, wide and narrow sections, high-speed blasts and variations in grip levels. Measuring 4.785 kilometres in length, the circuit winds its way through the picturesque town, meaning there’s quite simply no margin for error. And with live television coverage of both races on Eurosport and double championship points on offer, the stakes will be high as the ETCC tops the WTCC support bill for the fourth and final time in 2016.

Home hero Fábio Mota will be in the thick of the glory chase and the 28-year-old, who lives in Vila Nova de Gaia, 100 kilometres west of Vila Real, will be hoping his knowledge of the demanding layout will give him the edge when the ETCC returns to Portugal for the first time since Braga hosted the action in 2010. While none of his season-long ETCC rivals have competed there before, Mota has raced at Vila Real since racing returned in 2007.

“The circuit is amazing, fast and technical, and if you make a mistake you will pay the price, as it was possible to see last year in the WTCC,” said the Lema Racing SEAT driver. “Probably I’ll have some advantage from the knowledge that I have of the circuit, but the ETCC field has a very high driving standard and I believe that the drivers will adapt quickly to the track and race within the potential of their cars. I know I’ll have very hard opposition.”

Mota’s opposition includes current Super 2000 Cup leader and established ace Petr Fulín from Czech Republic (Křenek Motorsport SEAT) and 21-year-old Swiss hope Kris Richard, who pilots a Honda Civic for Rikli Motorsport. Fulín and Richard have three wins each from the opening six races with Fulín four points ahead of Richard in the title battle following last month’s Nürburgring Nordschleife double-header.

Swiss Peter Rikli partners Richard at his brother Erwin’s family-run team in a second TCN2-specification Honda. Countryman Christjohannes Schreiber, 27, was the polesitter in ETCC Race of Slovakia Ring and joins Fulín at Křenek Motorsport. Hungary’s Norbert Nagy (21) drives Zengő Motorsport SEAT and will be hoping to hit back from a frustrating Germany weekend when he crashed out of the opening race and was unable to start the second. Mladen Lalušić, 20 from Serbia, is contesting a full-season with Lein Racing after making selected ETCC appearances for the team in 2015, while Macedonia’s double FIA Hill Climb champion Igor Stefanovski completes the Lema Racing attack.

FERNANDES GETS HOME ETCC DEBUT: Manuel Fernandes will make his ETCC debut when the series visits his native Portugal this week. Driving a SEAT for the Speedy Motorsport team, Fernandes will chase ETCC Super 2000 Cup points as he bids for home glory.

ETCC SUPER 1600 CUP RIVALS GUN FOR MACKSCHIN: While 21-year-old German Niklas Mackschin has been doing the bulk of the winning in 2016 with four triumphs, his compatriots Kevin Hilgenhövel, Ulrike Krafft and Andreas Rinkehave also impressed, as has 16-year-old Czech Tomáš Korený. However, Krafft won’t be racing in Vila Real, leaving Ukrainian Ksenia Niks unchallenged in the battle for ETCC Ladies’ Cup points. Daniel Niermann made his ETCC debut in France and scored his season-best results on home soil in Germany.

BIG YEAR FOR ETCC: It’s a big year for the ETCC with a new two-tiered structure in place to streamline the competition. The headlining Super 2000 Cup is for the FIA’s new TCN2 category, plus the TC2T, TC2 and Single Make Trophy class, while the Super 1600 Cup caters for cars such as Ford’s Fiesta and Peugeot’s 207. And there are two big prizes at stake with the S2000 champion winning a WTCC race weekend in 2017, while the S1600 champion gets a test in a new-generation TCN2 car.

RULES REFRESHER: While the results of Qualifying will determine the grid order for Race 1, the results of the first race will decide the starting grid for Race 2, albeit with the top eight finishers lining up in reverse order. In Vila Real, S2000 Cup and the S1600 Cup competitors will score points as follows: fastest three drivers in qualifying: 6-4-2. The top eight finishers in each class in each race will score: 20-16-12-10-8-6-4-2. A race-by-race prize fund of €25,000, jointly awarded by tyre partner Yokohama, will be split between S2000 and S1600 competitors.

PROVISIONAL KEY TIMINGS:  Thursday 23 June: 13h30-14h00: Media round table with Manuel Fernandes and Fábio Mota (Media Centre); 14h45-17h15: Driver parade and autograph session (Vila Real) Friday 24 June: 09h00-09h45: Testing 1; 14h15-15h00: Testing 2 Saturday 25 June: 09h55-10h40: Free Practice; 16h20-16h50: Qualifying; 17h00: Post-Qualifying press conference (Media Centre) Sunday 26 June: 10h20: ETCC Race of Vila Real Race 1 (11 laps, rolling start); 11h30: ETCC Race of Vila Real Race 2 (11 laps, standing start); 12h10: Race 1 and Race 2 podiums; 12h25: Post-Race 1 and Race 2 press conference (Media Centre) Timings provisional and subject to change
