Michael Ford: I am here with Vincent Vosse from WRT – welcome to Australia.
Prefer to listen? You can here:
Vincent Vosse: It is a pleasure to be here. It is the first time for me to race in Australia. I have never raced here as a driver or a team so it a first experience and the people are very welcoming. This is one of those famous tracks that you want to race on.
MF: WRT had a highly successful season in Blancpain Sprint Championship last year. You have a strong driver lineup here at Bathurst – how do you see it going?
VV: We are not normally, if you look at the car from the MPC, those cars have a lineup with more experience. So we are normally not fighting at the same level. But lets see, we have drivers that are fast. If they are able to avoid mistakes, we should be the there somewhere.
MF: With your team – the Leopold Racing Team – WRT, racing to TCR rules last year, are you looking at the new WTCR for this year?
VV: We won the last two TCR International Championships. We will be in the WTCR but that doesn’t mean we know how many cars at the moment.
