Remembering when… Huff became Morocco’s first WTCC street king
This is the moment when Rob Huff effectively won the first FIA World Touring Car Championship race to take place in Morocco.
Driving a Chevrolet Cruze, the Briton converted his pole position into victory at Marrakech’s Circuit Moulay El Hassan in May 2009.
He headed home a quartet of SEAT racers, including Gabriele Tarquini, Yvan Muller and Tiago Monteiro.
Huff’s Chevrolet team-mate Nicola Larini, who placed sixth in Race 1, took the Race 2 laurels for his first WTCC triumph after Jörg Müller ran wide while leading. Muller and Huff completed the podium.
Marrakech hosts this year’s season-opening WTCC Race of Morocco from 7-9 April.
