Maxime Potty rejoins the WRT Team

Maxime Potty has rejoined the WRT Team to compete in TCR Europe and TCR Benelux at the wheel of a Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR. 

“I am going back to my first love, since I had already developed my career with WRT during my first two seasons in TCR Benelux,” Maxime said.“We had a number of choices to discuss concerning TCR Europe this year, but WRT's motivation made the difference. I felt a real willingness to work together and I know that it is an environment in which I feel at ease. In addition, their record speaks for itself... I am looking forward to meeting the staff with whom I worked in TCR Benelux in 2016 and 2017. I will also continue to have Jean-François Hemroulle as my coach, which will guarantee significant stability in our aim for good results.”

In 2018 Potty was classified eighth in TCR Europe with two podium results at Spa as his best results and finished runner up in TCR Benelux.
Team principal Vincent Vosse commented: “We are all really happy to have Max back for a full season. Internally, the confirmation of his return was met with delight and I know that all the guys here are extremely motivated to take Max back to where he deserves to be on the grid. It must also be said that there was a taste of unfinished business: the WRT Karting Academy in 2015, TCR Benelux in 2016 and 2017, 4th place in the TCR Trophy Europe at the end of 2017, and so on. A full season in TCR Europe was therefore the logical continuation. As the five TCR Benelux events are integrated into TCR Europe, we will also be well equipped to keep our Team and Driver Championship titles in this competition, while also aiming for a good result in the European Championship.”

This week, Potty and the team are already in tests at Portimão. Further sessions will follow in the coming weeks.
I can count on a year of great experience in TCR Europe and I know all the circuits, except Hockenheim and the Red Bull Ring,” concluded Potty. “The objective we share with WRT is therefore clear: we want to run at the front and aim for a podium result in TCR Europe and the title in TCR Benelux!”
