El Super TC2000 held the fifth date of his 2018 tournament at the circuit of Rafaela, the fastest on the calendar. This presentation had as its main protagonists Facundo Chapur and Citroën Total Racing STC2000, who were intractable and took everything that was at stake.
Chapur achieved pole position and despite the fact that the penalty system for the first eight of the championship was used again in this round, he started from the first place in the Saturday qualifying race. The great victory he achieved in that instance also allowed him to go ahead in the Sunday competition, in which he was again forceful.
The podium was completed Emiliano spataro (Renault Sport) and Agustin Canapino (Chevrolet YPF Team), who ran much of the test with a broken windshield, which caused visibility problems.
“We had the final we dreamed of. It was great team work. I am very happy and very grateful to all the engineers and mechanics because we have done a formidable job at Rafaela ”, explained Chapur, that this year I had already won in Rosario.
“They gave me a tool to develop a weekend with peace of mind and we were able to keep everything, the training sessions, the qualifying, the sprint race and the final, so we are very happy and with renewed expectations to fight for what is to come. How nice it is to run in Rafaela and more when it goes well! Let's go for more! "added the Cordovan, who crossed the finish line behind the safety car that entered the final laps due to one of the many incidents caused by the broken tires
The champion Facundo Ardusso (Renault) could not reach the end after being rammed by Matias Rossi (Toyota), who had a tire burst at more than 280 km / h. Despite not scoring points, Ardusso remains the leader of the tournament with a 23-point advantage over Canapino.
