RAVENOL sponsored Bamboo WTCC team are counting the trophies after a victorious weekend at the Salzburgring in Austria in the latest round of the WTCC. James Nash delivered Bamboo’s first ever WTCC outright victory, a second place, an independent win and an independent second place with Alex MacDowall also claiming an Independent podium and fastest lap honours.

James Nash, “We’ve approached this weekend completely differently and it’s paid dividends. Winning a race at this level is such an exhilarating feeling and one I could get very used to! I have really enjoyed Austria and am pleased we had two good, clean races. We now need to keep the momentum in Moscow, a track where we will all have a lot to learn.”

Alex MacDowall, “It’s been a tough weekend but I’ve been pleased with my pace, fastest laps and some great charges through the field but it would have been nice to capitalise on this pace a bit more, but all in all, not a bad weekend.”

Richard Coleman, Chief Executive – Bamboo Engineering, “Claiming Bamboo’s maiden WTCC win is a great feeling, I knew this year was going to be strong and I feel this win is testament to all the hard work the team have put in. I’m proud of James, Alex and the team for their commitment and professionalism.”

The overall results are as follows, Race 1, Nash P2, MacDowall P5 (P2 and P4 in the Yokohama Independents respectively) Race 2, Nash P1, MacDowall P5 (P1 and P3 in the Yokohama Independents respectively). This leaves Nash 3rd in the drivers Championship behind Muller and Tarquini and MacDowall up to 7th, Nash is also leading the Yokohama Independent Championship and MacDowall 3rd. Bamboo Engineering have also closed the gap and remain second in the Independent Team Championship.
