Esteban Guerrieri gave the Honda Civic Type R TCR a dominant victory at the opening WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup race of the year in Marrakech as his ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport team left Morocco leading the race for the Teams’ title.

The Argentinian driver took the car’s first WTCR pole position on Saturday morning and drove a flawless race to the top step of a podium on which he was joined by new team-mate Nestor Girolami in third on his debut race.
Guerrieri scored a pair of fourth places in Sunday’s double-header with Girolami 10th and sixth; the duo now holding second and fourth in the Drivers’ points table.
Mads Fischer, JAS Motorsport TCR Project Leader, said: « It’s been one heck of a weekend for the Civic Type R TCR; in particular in Marrakech where the car’s achieved some fantastic results, including a first pole position and a win and double-podium in the first race. I must congratulate ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport on a job well-done and KCMG on great speed they’ve shown this weekend. The performances in the races in TCR Italy have been encouraging while Prince Racing were very unfortunate in the circumstances they faced at Sepang. Finally, I must say well done to WSC and TCR, who have created a Balance of Performance that seems to place almost all of the formula’s brands within a couple of tenths of a second each other. This is extremely difficult to achieve, but we appreciate the work they’ve put in to get to this point. »
