RML Secures Third Successive WTCC Title Haul
Manufacturers' Title Assured - Focus Moves to Drivers' Championship

Ray Mallock predicts "The Drivers’ Championship will go right down to the wire with three of the best Touring Car drivers in the world fighting for the title."
Triple podium spot for Chevrolet and RML in Suzuka, Japan
Yvan Muller and Rob Huff now tied 1st / 2nd in Drivers’ Championship with two events remaining
Teammate Alain Menu is the only other driver who can win the championship

RML secured its third successive FIA World Touring Car Manufacturers Championship at Suzuka at the weekend with two rounds still remaining. The dominance of the RML-prepared Chevrolet Cruze's in qualifying gained enough points to secure the title before the start of race one at the challenging Suzuka Circuit in Japan.

The confines of Japan’s Suzuka East Circuit were ideally suited to the RML-prepared Chevrolet Cruze’s and the all-star works driver line-up of Alain Menu, Yvan Muller and Rob Huff who went onto claim a 1-2-3 in race one.

The focus now shifts to the Drivers’ Championship with Yvan Muller and Rob Huff tied with 345 points in first and second, while third place Alain Menu gained enough points in Suzuka to maintain a shot at the championship.

Ray Mallock, Chief Executive, RML Group said: “The whole team at RML is both delighted and proud to have secured the Manufacturers’ Championship for Chevrolet. This third consecutive WTCC Championship underlines RML’s ability to manage all aspects of a race programme for a car brand to deliver multiple wins and multiple FIA World Championships.

“The focus now moves onto the Drivers’ Championship where the battle for the title will be fought within our team. In Yvan, Rob and Alain we have three of the best touring car drivers in the world. It’s going to be a fascinating contest that I believe will go right down to the wire.

“It is so tight that even a minute mistake from one of them will decide the title. As always, RML will be preparing absolutely equal equipment for China and all three drivers will of course be free to race for the title."
