TOM'S RACE PREVIEW

“It was a super good result for the team today. Mattias showed his class to be crowned King of the Weekend. Adrien getting the win and me second in the FAST pool, it couldn’t have gone much better really today for CUPRA EKS, so very happy about that! My first weekend here in ETCR was good fun; I enjoyed it a lot so it bodes very well for the rest of the season.”
