Podium on home soil

Strong performance by Maxime Potty in Spa

Maxime Potty’s (B) purple patch of form has continued in the TCR Europe. In the third round of the season at Spa-Francorchamps (B), Potty finished third in the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR – his second podium finish of the year. “It was a very entertaining race that ended better than it started,” said Potty. “It’s a shame that I made a mistake at the start, because the pace was really good.” At his home race, the 19-year-old had secured a good starting position in qualifying with third on the grid. When the lights turned green, Potty was overtaken by some competitors, but battled back from eighth place and to cross the finish line behind the two Audi drivers Gilles Magnus (B) and Santiago Urrutia (ROU).
