Potty said: "In addition to my commitment inside the TCR Europe, I wanted to continue in Benelux. The level will be very high this year with, among others, Jean-Karl Vernay at the start. In Zandvoort, I intent to take revenge from my last year's forfait…"
"I'm much better prepared since my participation at the 2017 Jumbo Racedagen when I shared the car with Pepe Oriola. I've done lot of tests this winter and my Cupra has a good race pace. To race at home galvanizes me. I hope other Dutch drivers will join in the next races," Kroes stated.
