Tom Chilton made his way to the Hungaroring, Hungary at the weekend for round three of the 2017 World Touring Car Championship coming off the back of a win in round two of World Touring Car Championship last time at Monza, Tom was in good spirits.
The Grand Prix venue situated just outside of Budapest was resurfaced in 2016 and demands a very technical approach, very different from the slip steam thriller last time out at Monza.
For the opening race Tom qualified a very impressive 4th overall, the second Citroen C Elysee on the grid. After a strong start saw Tom go from 4th to 2nd. With passing difficult around the Hungaroring, Tom elected to settle for 2nd overall at the chequered flag saving his car from any damage prior to the main race.
The main race saw Tom start 7th overall, after another storming start and a brave move around the outside of Turn 1 meant Tom slotted into a strong 3rd place. A race where others made errors Tom found a strong rhythm to bring the car home 3rd overall.
Speaking on the race Tom said “It’s been a year since I got a double podium which was at the Noshlife ring about this time last year. What a great team effort by everybody, it’s the best starting qualifying session that the team’s ever had, with three of their cars in the top ten. A very good weekend.”
Two podiums from two races moves Tom up to 3rd overall in the World Touring Car standings. A very strong weekend for Tom and for his Sebastien Loeb team.
