Tom Coronel – Comtoyou Cupra TCR Tournament

Tom Coronel is once again mixing WTCR with TCR Europe this season, the series working this weekend on Norisring. Although he is currently second in the TCR rankings behind points points and Comtoyou teammate Franco Girolami, the Dutchman recently took the lead and opted for Vila Real.
After consulting with my partners I decided to choose Vila Real“said Coronel, who won in 2016 during the WTCC.”Naturally, I was looking for opportunities to combine the two events in Vila Real and Norisring. I have done this often enough before, but this time it was not possible due to the very great distance between the two. In situations like these, the World Cup is even more important for me and my partners, especially for DHL, which has invited many business visitors to Vila Real and which I also complete VIP rounds.Coronel’s successor in Norisring will be 34-year-old Norwegian Stian Paulsen.
