Campos Racing and Filippi to close WTCC season in Qatar

The Losail circuit will host the curtain closer next Friday. Corsica´s Filippi heads to Qatar with positive prospects

Campos Racing and its driver John Filippi will travel to Qatar for the WTCC season finale held at Losail International Circuit, which is located north of the capital Doha. As the Losail circuit added permanent outdoor lighting for night races, the thrilling season finale will take place under the spotlights.

Corsican driver Filippi, driving his Campos Racing-entered Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1 once again, sits fifth in the WTCC Trophy for privateers behind star drivers such as Mehdi Bennani, Tom Chilton, Tom Coronel and James Thompson. Earlier this season, Filippi stepped onto the podium twice in Russia and Japan and he will look to use that as a momentum for another solid finish in Qatar. On the other hand, Campos Racing lies fourth in the WTCC Teams´ Trophy.

The RML-built Chevrolet cars won´t carry any extra ballast weight.

Unlike other events, racing action will take place on Friday. Qualifying session will take place at 14.30 and both races are due to start at 21.20 and 22.35.
