Hugo Valente has delivered another strong performance at Nürburgring- Nordschleife and France´s racer will start second in Race 1 of the World Touring Car Championship with his Campos Racing-entered Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1. Valente already proved his pace in free practice sessions and later, in qualifying, he was José María López´s closest rival. The Argentinian set a lap time of 8:37.327 with Valente taking second spot with his 8:38.579.


Corsican John Filippi, with another Chevrolet of Campos Racing, also qualified in the top ten with a lap of 8:44.632 but he has switched to the new upgraded unit. As a result Filippi will have to start from the back of the field.

Both races take place tomorrow at 11.15 and 12.15.
