WTCR Race of Hungary begins today with two free practice sessions, a three-phase qualifying, plus uncertainty over the weather.
Forecasts suggest a damp start to the day but a dry afternoon followed by a rain-free Sunday. However, home hero and King of WTCR Norbert Michelisz is none too sure.
“The weather is quite difficult to predict so we are still quite far from being able to say we will be in Q3 and having good qualifying and good races,” said the BRC Hyundai N LUKOIL Squadra Corse driver. “In the end I know the circuit so even if it’s wet or if it’s dry I think we have good card in our hands.”
