More than 80,000 enthusiastic race fans cheered the Honda Civics to the grid for Race 2 of the WTCC event at the sun drenched Hungaroring. The most noise of drums, trumpets and klaxons was for national hero Norbert Michelisz who had finished a popular second in the feature race earlier but the Honda fans also acknowledged the Castrol Honda drivers, Gabriele Tarquini and Tiago Monteiro.
After a tense qualifying session, the Zengo Motorsport Honda Civic driven by Hungary’s motor racing superstar, Norbert Michelisz, set second fastest time on his very last lap to the noisy delight of his hundreds of fans in the grandstand. Gabriele Tarquini also made a last minute run on a fresh set of tyres to take third fastest whilst Tiago Monteiro took fourth fastest in the second Castrol Honda. This means that Honda Civics will start Race 1 from the front and second rows, pole position taken by Yvan Muller.
